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.
If you're shopping from the United Kingdom, you can now buy locally on Amazon UK.
That's right, no import taxes and Royal Mail "handling" fees.
We're a community driven brand, so when you talk we listen. And what we've been hearing is that our UK customers were getting jacked on imports...
Trees for the Future has planted over 155 million trees since 1989. Nice!
We've been working together for 3 years, since Tree Tribe started. August is their birthday month and we want to say thank you and happy birthday!
