Together this year, we have planted over 14 million trees. It’s hard to wrap your head around such a big number, but put it this way: that’s enough trees to circle the planet 10.48 times*.
Trees have a real and lasting impact on ecosystems, our climate, and livelihoods worldwide. And by choosing our most sustainable, earth-friendly products on the planet, you’re wearing your impact and looking good doing it.
