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.
Happy Earth Day everyone! Join us in celebration by simply going for a hike or chillin with friends outside in nature :)
We love Earth Day everyday - our whole mission revolves around making a positive impact on the Earth by promoting and using eco friendly materials, and planting trees every single day through our customer sales.
Our second tree planting partner is Eden Projects. They have planted over 125,000,000 trees in 4 countries so far!
We've been with them a few months now, it started with wanting to add a new partner and plant extra trees for Earth Day!.
Our mission is to plant more trees on this beautiful planet to help make the world a better place. We've always planted trees on sales, but today we're showing our appreciation for the Earth by planting 2,500 extra trees!
We want to introduce and thank our main tree planting partner, Trees for the Future. We've been working with them for a few months now, and they're awesome!
It's been a super fun and exciting year! We launched earlier this year with a dream of creating a company that helps the Earth by planting trees and creating styles from natural materials.
So far we've planted almost 10,000 trees!
