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 trees through their organization.
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.
