CISION NEWSWIRE — Wood Underwear® LLC is excited to mark International Day of Forests, by announcing a new partnership with One Tree Planted, with a reforestation goal to plant more than 20 million trees in 2021. Wood Underwear will help One Tree Planted reach this goal and more by donating one tree for every order purchased.
Why Trees? Trees are remarkable. They are the most affordable and efficient carbon-capturing machines on the planet. And that’s not mentioning all the biodiversity, water, social and economic impacts they offer.
Why Trees and Wood Underwear?
- Obviously, it’s in the Wood name
- And, it’s in the fabric – natural, sustainable fibers
- We support active outdoor lifestyles and must protect those spaces for healthy use…and trees are fundamental
- We’re all connected – as part of the apparel industry we’re committed to doing better
“There are some obvious reasons, of course. It’s in our name,” started Terresa Zimmerman, founder of Wood Underwear. “And, it’s in the fabric. Wood works with fibers derived from wood. It’s what makes our fabrics so fantastic for performance and softness. Why One Tree Planted? Because they believe in getting their hands dirty to get it done. This active engagement aligns perfectly with our support of active outdoor lifestyles and protecting those spaces for the hands-on enjoyment of generations to come.”
“We are always excited to engage with apparel companies.” Matt Hill, founder and Chief Environmental Evangelist, One Tree Planted continued, “We admire Wood Underwear’s growing commitment to sustainability and to planting a tree for every order sold. Wood’s involvement with us in our reforestation efforts is a great example of how apparel brands can make a positive change for the environment.”
Wood Underwear will make it simple for customers to get involved. For every order, the company will give $1 to One Tree Planted to plant one tree. $1 = 1 tree. This is a full company commitment.
