Planting trees is one of the best ways to combat the damaging effects of climate change. Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink and provide habitat to over 80 percent of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. Trees also provide tremendous social impacts by providing jobs to over 1.6 billion people, empowering women in underdeveloped nations, and supporting communities devastated by environmental damage.
We’re happy to announce that we’ve partnered with One Tree Planted/@onetreeplanted to plant trees!
“We’re excited for the opportunity to work with Woodey on such an impactful project.” said One Tree Planted founder and Chief Environmental Evangelist, Matt Hill. “We admire the company’s commitment to planting a tree for every product sold. It’s a prime example of how sunglasses brands can make a positive change for our planet.”
The partnership is designed to be simple for customers to get involved in global reforestation. For every pair of sunglasses sold from Woodey’s inventory, the company will give $1 to One Tree Planted to plant one tree. The trees are planted by local partner organizations and community volunteers in areas where there has been deforestation.
