NAFSI has officially partnered with Evertreen. For every item sold as of March 1st 2021, NAFSI will plant one tree. As of December 15th, 2021, we have planted 200 trees.
"Planting trees is the perfect fit for NAFSI. Sustainability is at the core of our business model and while we make a tremendous impact upcycling deadstock fabric, it means the world to have another way to give back to our environment."
- Celine Hajjar, Founder at NAFSI
The objectives of this new partnership include:
Supporting global reforestation efforts
Empowering consumers with sustainable actions
Raising awareness about the importance of ecosystem restoration
Planting trees is one of the best ways to combat the damaging effects of climate change. Trees help clean the air you breathe, filter the water you 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.
Apparel brands can make a positive change to the planet — this one in particular is designed to be simple for customers to get involved in global reforestation. For every item sold, NAFSI will plant 1 tree. The trees are planted by local partner organizations and community volunteers in areas where there has been deforestation.
Evertreen is the only platform worldwide enabling users to plant real trees online guaranteeing their survival. Evertreen covers the natural mortality rate occurring during transplant, by planting at own costs an additional 20-50% of the trees financed by users. All trees are planted directly by local farmers and bring environmental, social and economic benefits. Each Evertreen tree is certified, geo-located and can be physically visited or even virtually donated to a third party
