tentree is a environmentally progressive, lifestyle apparel brand that plants ten trees for every item purchased. They work with a variety of not-for-profits, educational groups, and organizations across the globe to ensure that their planting efforts are having a real, marked impact in the local communities. To date, they have already planted well over 10 million trees. These trees have provided hundreds of thousands of days of employment in underprivileged communities across the globe which equates to several hundred full-time jobs. Not to mention the countless hours of education that have gone into making these projects a success. The environmental impact is truly astounding as these trees help rejuvenate damaged eco-systems and remove pollution from the atmosphere. With every purchase this impact grows.
Unbelts are super comfy, completely bulkless, and machine-washable right in the belt loops. Adjustable to fit sizes 0 through 24X, they close the gap at the back of our customers' jeans - in other words, creating a perfect fit without the need for pricey tailoring.
They distribute through a network of over 300 Canadian retailers, and through our website to customers from Iceland to Estonia. They speak loudly about the need for supply chain transparency in the fashion industry, and for the rights of garment workers to equitable working conditions. It's a "who, not where" approach to ethical fashion, because they believe that quality jobs are possible - and necessary - everywhere in the world that clothing is made.
Patagonia grew out of a small company that made tools for climbers. Alpinism remains at the heart of a worldwide business that still makes clothes for climbing – as well as for skiing, snowboarding, surfing, fly fishing, paddling and trail running. These are all silent sports. None requires a motor; none delivers the cheers of a crowd. In each sport, reward comes in the form of hard-won grace and moments of connection between us and nature.
Patagonia's values reflect those of a business started by a band of climbers and surfers, and the minimalist style they promoted. The approach taken towards product design demonstrates a bias for simplicity and utility. For Patagonia, a love of wild and beautiful places demands participation in the fight to save them, and to help reverse the steep decline in the overall environmental health of our planet. They donate time, services and at least 1% of sales to hundreds of grassroots environmental groups all over the world who work to help reverse the tide.
