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 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.

One of the reasons we plant 10 trees for each item purchased in our store is because of their longevity. Long after you and I are gone, the trees we plant will still be giving back to this planet in an incredible way. And that's why we like to feature trees like this one.
