May is Endangered Species Month, and our tree planting partner Eden Projects just shared some cool news with us!
They recently added 13 additional acres of land in Madagascar to use as a conservatory and rehabilitation center for endangered wildlife such as lemurs, crocodiles, tortoises, and chameleons.
I'm a big fan of wildlife conservation like this - dedicating land to use for learning and education about our environment and coexisting with nature.
We're happy to support such a great organization making positive impacts in the world.
Eden Projects helps people get people out of poverty (planting trees), restoring the environment (planting trees) and helping endangered animals (more trees yes!).
Eden Projects has planted over 200,000,000 trees on planet Earth.
They hire locals to help plant and care for the trees. They plant in Nepal, Madagascar, Haiti, and Ethiopia. For every sale of our Water Bottles or Leaf Leather Accessories, we donate to plant 10 trees through their organization.
Today for #GivingTuesday we donated to Trees for the Future to plant 🌲 3,000 trees 🌲
That bumps our total trees planted count to over 300,000! Whoa!
What started 3 years ago as an idea to create eco friendly products and plant 10 trees for every product sold has turned into a legit force of good for the Earth.

The idea behind Tree Tribe is to create consciously, build community, and give back to the Earth.
Our community focused approach means we take requests, and sometimes our Tribe comes up with ideas that get turned into actual products... liiiiiike the Envelope Clutch!
