10 Outdoor Gear & Apparel Brands Making A Positive Impact
Conceived on a hiking and surfing trip in Hawaii in 2011 and formally founded in 2012 in Regina, Saskachewan. Tentree goes beyond the “do no harm” policy of many ethically minded brands and state its aim as “make a difference”. Not only do they produce cool, minimal-impact clothing, but for every item sold they plant ten trees!
Tentree’s Impact: Environmental
To date, Tentree has planted over 19 million trees, focusing its efforts in countries such as Madagascar and Ethiopia, where flooding and deforestation have devastated the tree population and consequently the fertility of the soil and ecosystem. Planting trees not only helps to restore that ecosystem, but also brings jobs to local communities.
