These days you can buy a pair of shoes and the company donates a pair of shoes to a needy child — think BOBS brand from Skechers. That is very admirable. If you are interested in our planet and trees, you can make a purchase of some clothes and the company will plant trees in another country. Your buying takes on a whole new meaning.

For those interested in the rainforest, organizations were started to protect and replant trees. Ten Tree pairs their planting efforts directly to the sale of product. For every item purchased, they plant, you guessed it, ten trees. The website shows some amazing statistics. Over three million trees have been planted in Madagascar alone. That is amazing and shows quite a commitment. 

Ten Tree’s brand appeals to the consumer who wants to contribute to the well-being of the planet. Ten Tree believes that people will buy their clothing because it is quality clothing, but also because they know that doing so contributes to more than just their style. It’s really worth reading the company website to see that it is about more than just trees. Preparing to plant the tree brings work to the community. The community is also hired to protect the reforestation sites from animals and inclement weather. It is one thing to plant a tree, and it is another to nurture a tree. Ten Tree makes a strong brand statement.
