Deforestation is a global environmental problem that not only destroys ecosystems, but it can also have long-term economic impacts. Luckily, there are a handful of eco friendly companies that are doing their part to restore these important ecosystems by planting trees for items purchased. Here are some of my favorites:
1. TenTree (Sustainable Apparel)
This is one of my favorite places to buy apparel because 10 trees are planted for every item purchased. Each item comes with its own unique code which allows you to track the trees that were planted due to your purchase. All of their apparel is made from sustainable materials and every piece that I own from here is SO soft. Their initiative is no doubt one of the best and my own favorite and that is why they are on top of my list of “Eco Friendly Companies”. SHOP NOW –>
