thanks for dropping by to learn more about us! the treeshirts™ team first joined in a social entrepreneurship course at John carroll university (go Blue streaks!) in the fall of 2014. We learned that many people (including ourselves) did not understand the horrors of deforestation and the negative impacts it has on our daily lives. seeing the need to educate people on the importance of protecting and restoring our natural rainforests pushed us to pursue our idea further and bring it to life.
We all can't be environmentalists, but we can make a sustainable purchase that has a positive impact. treeshirts allows the everyday person to make a lasting impact on our environment through a simple purchase. through our mutual desire to help our planet (and one too many pitchers of margaritas) treeshirts was born.
Our idea is simple: For every shirt you buy, we plant a tree in a deforested region of the rainforest. currently, with the help of our partner organization r.e.g.u.a., we are planting in the atlantic forest of Brazil.
the treeshirt community is as beautiful and diverse as the rainforest we are trying to restore. We encourage you to spread the word about deforestation and wear your treeshirt proudly. together we can restore the rainforest, One treeshirt at a time!
