Tentsile is increasing its tree planting activity this holiday season. Each year Tentsile hosts a Green Friday sale focused on environmentalism over profits.
On target to plant 1 million trees, Tentsile has reached the milestone of 742,000 trees planted since 2017. To help reach its goal to plant 100 trees for each Tree Tent or hammock sold as part of its Green Friday event this year while offering 20 percent off selected Tree Tents and Hammocks for customers.
Tentsile loves trees and believes that reforestation is the most effective way of combating climate change. Through the support of leading international groups and grassroots organizations committed to halting deforestation and saving old-growth resources, Tentsile has spread awareness and hopes to inspire everyone to join the movement.
“My hope is that by reconnecting people with nature and in particular forests, then a new appreciation of these environments might ignite a more active movement against global deforestation,” Alex Shirley-Smith, Founder and CEO
Throughout the year, Tentsile plants twenty new trees for each tent sold with partner organizations WeForest and The Eden Project. Both international non-profits promote pioneering movements in large-scale sustainable reforestation and poverty alleviation initiatives.
Trees have been planted in Madagascar, Zambia, India and Oregon, and Tents have been donated to help the teams carry out their work. Tentsile also provides customers with an easy way of offsetting their emissions by making a donation to plant trees
with Tentsile. For every donation made, Tentsile matches it.
