10 Companies that Plant a Tree for Every Product You Buy
It's International Forest Day and what better way to help the forests than to plant a tree? Here is our favorite list of 10 companies that plant a tree for every product they sell:
1. Woodchuck USA
Buy One. Plant One. We have a vision of a world more connected to nature. That's why we have partnered with American Forests to plant a tree for every product we sell. Be a part of this next chapter with us.
At tentree, we're focused on more than just planting trees. We want to help change lives. Not only does reforestation revitalize dry arid soil and provide a substantial oxygen supply, but it directly benefits locals living in the area by providing wood for fuel, food, and fodder for livestock, as well as permanent and seasonal employment. We have partnered with not-for-profits across the planet to ensure tentree has a truly global footprint, and can identify the regions that will benefit most from our planting.
The brainchild of an Italian watch lover and two eco-smart entrepreneurs, WEWOOD fashions wooden timepieces from mostly scrap-wood and uses state-of-the-art Miyota movements for the guts, a hybrid of technology and nature resulting in a unique watch that's both handsome and earth friendly. With this cohesive collaboration, the goal is to help restore Mother Nature, one watch at a time, by planting a tree for every WeWOOD purchased. Since 2011, WEWOOD has planted over 420,000 trees with its partners and sets challenging targets for 2015 and beyond. One such challenge is our goal of planting 1 million trees by 2020. Keeping forests healthy and happy keeps us healthy and happy, we like to keep our reminder on our wrist.
The etnies Buy a Shoe, Plant a Tree project started in 2011 when etnies Owner and CEO, Pierre-Andre Senizergues decided to invest in the future by planting a tree in the Costa Rican rainforest for every pair of Jameson 2 Eco shoes sold. The following year, the program expanded to Brazil and the next phase of planting will take place in Africa. Thanks to the help of a partnership through Trees for the Future, the reforestation program has expanded to three continents in five years. etnies is proudly celebrating the milestone of reaching one million trees in the Buy a Shoe, Plant a Tree program. Every time a pair of etnies is purchased, a tree will be planted in the rainforest, representing that individual’s contribution and commitment to the planet. etnies is fighting for our planet.
5. Baron Fig
Creating is at the heart of everything we do. We started Baron Fig to celebrate the creators and their process, which we believe should also consider how we interact with the world around us. It's important that we leave the earth better than we found it. You've shown your support since we launched, now the Buy a Book, Plant a Tree endeavor is our way of giving back in appreciation. It's our way of showing thanks to you, our customers, as well as to the environment.
