With a goal of becoming one of the most environmentally conscious companies on the planet, tentree contributes in a big way. This company plants 10 trees for each piece of clothing that is bought. Currently, they have planted over 20 million trees with a goal of planting a billion by 2030. That is a pretty lofty goal, but the environmental impact would be substantial either way.
Not only do they focus on planting trees, but they also utilize eco-friendly materials. The use of these materials helps to provide environmentally friendly products. They use organic cottons, buttons made out of coconut pieces, strips of cork on drawstrings, and hemp. These sustainable materials, as well as others, can be found in each one of their products.
The materials they use are environmentally friendly, as well as their manufacturing practices overall. They work to support labor practices that ensure fairness throughout their supply chain. Each company they work with is WRAP approved, this certification monitors labor practices on a yearly basis. Their factories all source their products locally, which has allowed tentree to reduce their pollution by %15. According to their website, their trees have absorbed 10,000 pounds of carbon dioxide per year.
Customers are able to purchase hoodies, hats, water bottles, and pants. Products produced with hemp are also available. I’ve owned one of their hoodies for a few years and it is probably one of the most comfortable hoodies I own. Be sure to check out tentree for your next clothing purchase.
