Vancouver, Canada - August 29, 2017 — tentree, one of the fastest growing apparel brands in North America, has reached a milestone of 15 million trees planted around the world. Since 2012, tentree has grown from a small local brand to a global movement, inspiring environmental stewardship, social responsibility, and community education worldwide.
Since April of 2015, tentree has been planting trees across Haiti. As of this writing, 667,870 trees have been planted around the island nation. The seasonal changes determine the kind of work we do in Haiti. While the tree planting doesn't last year round, there's always something to do. Now that the rainy season in Haiti has started, t's time to get planting.
At the end of last year we provided our partners with over $30,000 USD to purchase a boat in order to provide the team with easier access to supplies, saplings, wages, and more.
We are honored to announce that, with your help, tentree has planted its 10 millionth tree. This is an exciting milestone because we know it's just a drop in the bucket of what we can do together.
At tentree, we're all about planting trees, but your impact goes beyond that. Our trees are able to revitalize local economies by providing sustainable wood as well as steady employment where we do our work.
