Tree Tribe is all about creating a community of environment conservationists. 


We sell eco-alternative products like vegan eco bottles and  upcycled handmade activewear, and we plant a tree for every sale, but one of our main missions is also to connect you with other like-minded businesses who are trying to change the world, one product at a time. 


Below is a list of some of the many amazing eco-friendly product shops in North America that we absolutely love. 



Plaine Products

Dedicated to the elimination of single use plastic, Plaine Products offers consumers eco- and vegan-friendly hair and body products. 


Chemical-free, non-toxic products in reusable bottles that the company refills for you. Even their  packaging is made from a mix of 95% post-consumer waste and 5% post-industrial waste, meaning no new materials are used in the manufacturing.

Elate Cosmetics

Natural, refillable, cruelty-free, vegan, zero waste and fair trade makeup. 


Started in Victoria, British Columbia by Melodie Reynolds, this company is showing the world that  you don’t have to compromise your ethics for beauty.  

 

Kula Cloth

Based in Washington State, Outdoorswoman and former Park Ranger Anastasia Allison created a solution to the problem of toilet paper littering the great outdoors. 


As an avid supporter of  Leave No Trace principles for responsible outdoor recreation, the Kula Cloth was born as a purposefully designed pee cloth featuring an antimicrobial, silver-infused absorbent side and waterproof clean side to keep your hands clean and dry. 

 

Evercoast Handmade

This small, home-based business on Vancouver Island, British Columbia sells an array of eco-alternative products for your food and beverage needs. 


Machine-washable reusable snack bags, beeswax wraps, and coffee cozies are just a few. 

 

Meow Meow Tweet

Started in New York City, Meow Meow Tweet is a small-batch skin care company that creates vegan products like deodorants and face creams with all natural, vegan, cruelty-free, organic ingredients. 


Environment conservation is at the root of all operations too selling many refillable products, and shipping plastic-free using biodegradable/compostable corn-based packing peanuts, paper, cardboard and paper tape.



Knix

knix leakproof underwear

No more tampons, no more pads. Started in Toronto, Ontario, the small company has turned global game-changer with their  leakproof underwear revolutionizing feminine hygiene with a comfortable, waste-free alternative.

 

The Shift is Happening

Gone are the days when consumers have to compromise their ethics for convenience. 


While they may not yet be mainstream, let’s get them there by  making eco-conscious decisions when we shop


Before you buy anything at all, ask yourself if there is an eco-alternative. Just google it and you’re bound to arrive at some really great solutions.


 Imagine the impact we’ll have when we all do it all the time. Demand creates supply so soon enough it won’t even have to be a question; eco-friendly could be the norm. Let’s make it happen, Tribe. We’re in this together. ✊🌲

I'm obsessed with outdoor adventures. When I'm not out hiking, you can probably find me up in an alpine lake on my paddleboard, trail running over mountain peaks, or shredding the slopes on my snowboard.

Favourite nature spot: Howe Sound, British Columbia

Bamboo Straws: What's the Big Deal?

It's something you never really pay any attention to: you order a soda or a milk shake, or even just a water and the waiter always lays something next to the glass - a straw. While we all know that plastic straws are seriously damaging our planet (think 500 MILLION plastic straws used per day, most ending up in landfills*), we don't always talk about the alternatives to being able to use your straw...in a sustainable way. 🌱
