r.e.g.u.a. is a Brazilian non-profit non-governmental organization working to conserve the atlantic forest (Mata atlântica) of rio de Janeiro state’s upper Guapiaçu river basin. We have established a relationship with r.a.g.u.a. and through their process of reforestation, they plants seeds in nurseries, assists in tree growth, and then eventually transport the trees to the rainforest to thrive naturally. r.e.g.u.a. will plant one tree in honor of every treeshirt purchased.
Interested in learning more about the reforestation process and how trees are planted? visit www.regua.org to find information on how your purchase makes a difference.
Our one-for-one mission is completed with every treeshirt purchased. we donate a percentage of each sale to r.e.g.u.a. to assist in their rainforest restoration efforts. the donations give r.e.g.u.a. the funds needed to take a seed from the nursery, move it to the rainforest, monitor it, and then eventually let it live naturally. each treeshirt plants one indigenous tree.
