Tree Tribe started in 2015 as a way to give back to the Earth and raise awareness on sustainability in the product industry (fashion, apparel, accessories).
As the founder, I wanted to start a company that had a purpose to help our planet, while making a positive impact on the world.
I was inspired by the "1 for 1 model" and said "Ya know what 1 for 1 is cool but I want to do 10 for 1!". That started our model of planting 10 trees on every sale.
Yoooo have you seen our new hats yet?! --> Hats Collection.
I've been a fan hats my whole life - probably since starting baseball at age 6 🧢
We've been wanting to do hats for a long time with Tree Tribe but just could't find a good combo of quality + eco materials.
At Tree Tribe, we always try to create more eco friendly alternatives than what's on the market.
Hey everyone, just wanted to send some positive vibes out to the universe and wish you a happy Earth Day 🌲
Earth Day's fun, even if it's on a Monday and we're still working, it's a great time to take an hour or 2 and hit the park and chill... or put your phone on airplane mode tonight and disconnect from the digital world (I've been doing this a lot lately).
Let’s start things off with a small bit of advice. Start using your travel journal before your trip.
Seriously, you’ll realise how important it is, when you are looking back at your adventures, to record even the slightest bit of planning to ensure that your trips have meaning and purpose.
Before all the memories and ticket stubs begin to flood the pages of your journal, make a list of things you want to see, food you want to try, or dedicate a page to language phrases you can use on the daily.
Fresh out of university after four years studying ecology, zoology and conservation genetics, I was well and truly ready for an adventure.
I wanted to book a plane ticket, pack my bags and head out the door as soon as possible.
But two things were stopping me. Firstly, money. Spending four years studying doesn’t mean you’re exactly raking in the cash. Secondly, when I got back and started looking for jobs, what would an employer think of a recent lengthy, self-indulgent holiday?
Then a solution came to me:
Why not combine some adventurous traveling with work experience?
In THE POWER OF MYTH by Joseph Campbell with Bill Moyers (1988), Campbell states that “Chief Seattle was one of the last spokesmen of the Paleolithic moral order. In about 1852, the United States Government inquired about buying the tribal lands for the arriving people of the United States.”
“The President in Washington sends word he wishes to buy our land. But how can you buy or sell the sky? The land? The idea is strange to us. If we do not own the freshness of the air and the sparkle of the water, how can you buy them?”

We have women's tees now woohoo!
We've had men's/unisex tees for awhile now but were waiting to find the right material and fit for quality women's tees.
We tested, prototyped, and now have available super comfy form fitting women's tees
They're made out of Supima Cotton - a premium cotton grown in the US that's known for increased strength and softness.
Medium thickness is soft enough to be comfy and give structure, while not being too heavy or too thin.
