NAFSI has officially partnered with One Tree Planted. For every item sold as of March 1st 2021, NAFSI will plant one tree.
"Working with One Tree Planted is the perfect fit for NAFSI. Sustainability is at the core of our business model and while we make a tremendous impact upcycling deadstock fabric, it means the world to have another way to give back to our environment."
- Celine Hajjar, Founder at NAFSI
The objectives of this new partnership include:
Supporting global reforestation efforts
Empowering consumers with sustainable actions
Raising awareness about the importance of ecosystem restoration
Planting trees is one of the best ways to combat the damaging effects of climate change. Trees help clean the air you breathe, filter the water you drink, and provide habitat to over 80 percent of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity.
Trees also provide tremendous social impacts by providing jobs to over 1.6 billion people, empowering women in underdeveloped nations, and supporting communities devastated by environmental damage.
Apparel brands can make a positive change to the planet — this one in particular is designed to be simple for customers to get involved in global reforestation. For every item sold, NAFSI will plant 1 tree with One Tree Planted. The trees are planted by local partner organizations and community volunteers in areas where there has been deforestation.
One Tree Planted is a nonprofit on a mission to make it simple for anyone to help the environment by planting trees.Their projects span the globe and are done in partnership with local communities and knowledgeable experts to create an impact for nature, people, and wildlife. Reforestation helps to rebuild forests after fires and floods, provide jobs for social impact, and restore biodiversity. Many projects have overlapping objectives, creating a combination of benefits that contribute to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
