We plant a tree on every sale, but what does this mean? Well, we're not just randomly chucking a handful of seeds and hoping for the best... we work with organizations that strategically plant trees for sustainability.

When you make a Tree Tribe purchase, you help feed people in need, improve quality of life for your fellow humans (and animals), and of course you help the entire planet by contributing more trees and plant life. One Love.

We only work with trusted organizations to plant our trees.

Our first partner, Trees for the Future, has planted over 127 Million trees in their 25 years of existence. They are experts in agroforestry, the technique of planting small scale forests that combine agriculture and forestry to provide sustainable resources and nutritious food.

Trees for the Future focuses on helping people in the developing world, primarily in Africa. Their focus is on the implementation of Forest Garden Programs in Cameroon, Kenya, Senegal, Uganda, and Tanzania, where they can have the biggest impact and produce amazing results.

You can follow their progress and see some personal stories on here on Facebook

Check out this cool video we found on agroforestry to learn more about this type of system.

By the way, we're always looking for more tree planting partners. If you know any reputable organizations in your country, give us a shout!

Update to Our Tree Planting Model

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.
