I recently got two TenTree products. From the label you get a little code that you can register on the website and it will show you where your 10 trees will be planted. They were on Dragon’s Den and from that exposure has made it a great new brand on the Canadian marketplace and now it’s starting to branch out world wide. I have posted a long video below of them on Dragon’s Den as well as a pretty cool video that explains more behind the scenes look at the founders and the company with starting this venture. It’s pretty cool and recommend.
It’s on my list of 101 Things To Do in 1001 days… so I need a total of 70 trees. I presently have 30 trees with 3 things purchased. Very easy goal.
Update: 30! 10 more trees in Madagascar with a new tshirt purchased 16Mar16
Ten trees can have an incredible impact on the ecosystems they plant in. All trees planted are local species, often times in some of the harshest regions. They use “pioneer” species to ensure survival and often plant more than ten trees per item to guarantee ten trees SURVIVE for every item sold. They aim to plant in areas that have the greatest need.
Madagascar, where mangrove forests have been devastated, leaving locals with infertile farm land and completely wiping out thriving ecosystems.
Here is the first 20 that were planted in Madagascar from my first purchase.
At tentree, manufacturing is one of the key areas where they pursue social equity and environmental sustainability. It is a widely held belief that the garment manufacturing industry is oppressive and irresponsible. Not only do they believe that we are capable of changing this; they believe that it is their responsibility to do so. To make a broad sweeping statement that tentree will avoid all international production is to accept that there are issues that cannot be fixed. Instead, we work to change the apparel industry through transparency, dedication, and diligence.
From the website you can get it at “Boathouse” locations at different malls and Sporting Life in Toronto carries the line.
