Our mission is to plant more trees on this beautiful planet to help make the world a better place. We've always planted trees on sales, but today we're showing our appreciation for the Earth by planting 2,500 extra trees!

Tree Tribe has now planted over 20,000 trees in our young history, and we're shooting for 100,000 trees this year.

As we grow, we'll keep expanding and diversifying our tree planting efforts around the world. The 2,500 trees planted today for Earth Day marks the start of our newest tree planting partnership, Eden Reforestation Projects. They do both reforestation and agroforestry, planting trees and bringing people out of poverty by employing locals in the communities where the trees are planted. The 2,500 trees today go specifically to reforestation in Haiti, which has lost 98% of it's original forests. Eden has planted over 125,000,000 trees in 4 countries, WHOA!. For more info on them, check out edenprojects.org.

We also want to give a shoutout to our tree planting partner from the start, Trees for the Future. They focus on agroforestry to help communities AND the Earth, and are planting millions of trees for Earth Day, WOW! Check them out at trees.org.

Thanks for being a part of the Tribe and vibing with our mission. If you like what we're doing please follow us on Instagram and Facebook.

Have a cool day!

Update to Our Tree Planting Model

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.
