Brand Highlight - Tentree
When we first decided we wanted to open a children's clothing and toy store, we realized how many amazing brands were out there! While we would love to be able to carry all of them, doing so would require a big space and a lot of money! With that said, we choose brands that we stand behind and believe in!
Every week, we'll choose one brand to highlight, explain why we love them and a bit of their company story! Here's our first brand: Tentree
We chose to carry Tentree, because I think they're a bit underrated when it comes to their children collection. Many people don't even know they make children's clothing and we want to change that! Their children's clothing (1T-5T) is absolutely amazing, the material is thick and soft, durable and washes very well. They even do "Parent and Kid" matching sweaters, which is always a bonus!
Who they are as a company!
Tentree is a Canadian apparel company that produces sustainable, eco-friendly clothing and accessories for outdoor enthusiasts. The company has a unique mission to plant ten trees for every item sold, with the goal of planting one billion trees by 2030.
Tentree was founded in 2012 by three friends, David Luba, Kalen Emsley, and Derrick Emsley, who were passionate about the environment and outdoor adventure. The company's core mission is to make a positive impact on the planet by creating sustainable clothing and accessories and planting trees.
Tentree's Sustainable Practices
Tentree's commitment to sustainability goes beyond planting trees. The company uses sustainable materials in its products, including organic cotton, recycled polyester, and hemp. They also use environmentally friendly dyeing and printing techniques that reduce water usage and chemical waste.
Tentree's factories are certified by third-party organizations that ensure ethical and sustainable manufacturing practices. The company also partners with Fair Trade Certified factories to ensure fair wages and safe working conditions for workers.
In addition to its sustainable practices, Tentree is also committed to giving back to communities in need. The company partners with organizations such as Trees for the Future, Eden Reforestation Projects, and One Tree Planted to plant trees in areas affected by deforestation.
They are committed to making a positive impact on the planet through sustainable practices and reforestation efforts. By choosing Tentree, customers support a brand that is making a difference in the world!
