Ten Tree Apparel are a socially aware clothing company that plant ten trees for every tee, tank, hoodie or hat they sell. Founded by David Luba, Derrick and Kalen Emsley after a epiphany while at hiking the hills of Hawaii. They realized that the delicate environment surrounding us is in jeopardy and felt they could do something about it. Because of this, their corporate commitment to the environment isn’t just a spin to sell clothes, it’s a true belief. Their philosophy is to inspire a new group of consumers to tackle the environmental issues now facing the planet. By planting ten trees for each garment and ensuring that it is produced responsibly allows each and every Ten Tree customer to make a difference.
