1. Tentree - a forest of sustainable fashion

Tentree is more than a clothing brand; it's an environmental movement. With every purchase, Tentree plants 10 trees. Customers receive a token with a code to track their planted trees' progress, including their location and impact. This initiative has already resulted in over 30 million trees being planted. Beyond tree planting, Tentree's clothing is crafted from sustainable materials like hemp, organic cotton, and recycled polyester, aligning with an Earth-first approach.
