Hope & Glory Sportswear are proud to announced a partnership with One Tree Planted. For every EcoKit shirt purchased, Hope & Glory will plant one tree.
“Working with One Tree Planted is a great fit for Hope & Glory Sportswear,” said H&G founder, Ric Dennis. “Sustainability is important to us, and while we make an impact helping to recyle plastic bottles with our rPET fabric used to make our EcoKit, it’s great to have another way to give back and help the environment.”
Planting trees is one of the best ways to combat the damaging effects of climate change. Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we 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.
“We’re excited for the opportunity to work with Hope & Glory Sportswear on such an impactful project,” said One Tree Planted founder and Chief Environmental Evangelist, Matt Hill. “We admire the company’s commitment to planting a tree for every EcoKit shirt sold. It’s a prime example of how apparel brands can make positive change for our planet.”
The partnership is designed to be simple for customers to get involved in global reforestation. For every EcoKit shirt sold, Hope & Glory plant one tree. The trees are planted by One Tree Planted’s local partner organisations and community volunteers in areas where there has been deforestation.
