As a brand, Tree Tribe exists to spread positive energy and give back to the Earth.
Tree Tribe is all about celebrating the beauty of nature and bringing people together in this world.
As our brand continues to grow, we're looking to build more community and expand our Tribe of creators.
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!
Read on for before/after pics and an interview with Bekah, the designer behind the Envelope Clutch.
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!
Some cool facts about Trees for the Future:
Indonesia is a collection of over 17,000 tropical islands in Southeast Asia.
We love Indonesia - actually most of our team has spent significant time there. I think Bali is one of the easiest places to be super healthy - yoga and surf culture, plenty of beach to run and ocean to swim, and lots of healthy food options.
Our tree planting partner Eden Projects has expanded to Indonesia! And a portion of our donations to plant trees contribute to the Indo projects.
Hi! If you're already a part of our community, thanks for checking in and seeing what's new. If you're new here, welcome to the neighborhood :)
The last year has been fun! We've now passed 150,000 trees planted, have expanded with more eco gear, and our community is steady growing.
We've found some new materials to work with, new partnerships, and have connected with some really great positive energy people
With Black Friday (aka Green Friday for us :D) and Cyber Monday in the air, I've been reflecting a bit on modern commerce and the power of the people to contribute to positive causes based on the products we buy.
We're a social enterprise, this was primary vision even before we even came up with a name - Tree Tribe is an eco vehicle used as a medium to give back to the Earth.
I want to introduce a Friend of the Tribe - Flying Squirrel Outfitters. They make high quality, uniquely designed, hand-made hammocks in Northern Thailand.
On top of that, they work to create sustainable social change by empowering women in the local hill tribes they work with - each hammock is meticulously crafted by skilled seamstresses, where they earn a high living wage working at home, with no set working hours.
We recently started a collaboration with Change Co., a startup that offers a quarterly subscription box to introduce others to modern socially conscious products made by companies that are striving to create positive and lasting change.
They donate to charity too. Nice!
We love connecting with other socially conscious brands and sharing their story, so I caught up with the cofounder Lydia to hear her story first hand:

CIRENAS (Centro de Investigaciones de Recursos Naturales y Sociales) and Tree Tribe started a unique collaboration roughly six months ago when I got in touch with Joe Lannen, founder of Tree Tribe, simply because of their business model that included planting trees based on sales.
