Trees are essential to human life. The environmental, psychological, social, and economic benefits they have on a community are hard to overstate. When neighborhoods are wiped out by disaster, replanting lost trees is a unique and powerful way to participate in the recovery and relief process.
A cool organization called RETREET plants trees and helps revive these communities, and we want to acknowledge their greatness!
RETREET is a public charity that provides disaster relief by engaging communities to make neighborhoods feel like home again. When disaster strikes, up to 75% of the trees are stripped away. RETREET engages communities to plant new trees by bringing together locals, volunteers, corporations, and state, regional, and national agencies.
Planting trees is a hands-on exercise that anyone can be taught easily. This knowledge is something that stays with one for a lifetime, encouraging those who have it to become more connected with and aware of the environment around them. Planting trees is powerful because it’s a practice that allows one person’s actions to impact generations to come.
As well as rebuilding urban forests, RETREET places a large emphasis on the use of bicycles as a means of transportation during its programming. Bicycles lower stress and increase the health of the riders and the environment. The encouragement of cycling instead of driving in motor vehicles has a positive effect that we have witnessed in communities all over the globe.
Founder Grady McGahan started RETREET after the community of Bastrop, TX, was destroyed by a fire that burned over 34,000 acres of forest, including large parts of Bastrop State Park and The Lost Pines Forest. The fire also destroyed 1,645 homes.
McGahan and his friends decided that they needed to get people moving and motivated to plant trees and replace them for the community residents who were struggling to put their lives back together. After planting new trees to replace the burned forest, their team then took to bicycles, riding through the countryside exploring the town’s history. That’s how RETREET was born.
"We form teams of strangers from all walks of life to complete a task that is highly beneficial to everyone involved. We get to know the people we are helping. We step into their world and see their long road to recovery. Then, we help them down that path. We are thankful for our own blessings and fulfilled by the thanks we receive for the work we do. Being on RETREET is a profoundly invigorating and gratifying experience. It is unforgettable and addictive. RETREETers head home tired, sore, accomplished, and content," explains McGahan.
To date, RETREET has planted 4,677 trees in 14 communities across North America. Click here to see the impact that RETREET has had in these communities.
Great job RETREET you're awesome!

Getting out in nature provides a wonderful escape from stress, anxiety and negative thoughts. It has been long thought that frolicking in the ocean has even more health benefits; historically doctors would recommend their patients go to the seaside to improve their various illnesses.
At Tree Tribe, we can’t get enough of the ocean, and check out the evidence to support it:View full article →

Tree Tribe is all about the outdoors lifestyle and being environmentally friendly, so we're stoked to announce our super comfortable beanies made from organic cotton and recycled plastic!
We focus on using eco friendly materials for our products, and recycled materials are an important part of this movement. By including recycled fabrics, we're supporting the recycling industry, while preventing the creation of new plastics/polyester.
Our new beanies are made primarily from Recycled Plastic (RPET) and Organic Cotton. Polyester is a common material used in the clothing industry, and you can make polyester from recycled plastic bottles (PET is typically the kind of plastic for these single use bottles). RPET is recycled post-consumer PET that is converted into a textile that you can use to make things like hats and clothes.
In the US, only about 25% of plastic bottles get recycled, so by supporting recycled materials, we hope to contribute to increased recycling and reusing of materials, rather than creating new materials.
Organic cotton is a great combo because it's grown without the use of harmful pesticides and chemicals. Sure it's a little more expensive to produce, but we believe the health of the Earth is more important than saving a couple bucks.
We always love to hear your ideas, let us know what you think here.
