Tentsile, a brand known for both their award-winning designs, and their unwavering commitment to protecting global forests, is increasing their tree planting activity this holiday season.

Each year Tentsile host a Green Friday sale - focusing on environmentalism over profits at a time when most brands are promoting BFCM - and this year is no different. On target to plant 1 million trees, Tentsile has reached the impressive milestone of 742,000 trees planted since 2017! To help reach their incredible goal they have pledged to plant 100 trees for each Tree Tent or hammock sold as part of their Green Friday event this year whilst offering 20% off a 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 organisations committed to halting deforestation and saving old growth resources, Tentsile has helped spread awareness and hopes to inspire each and every one of their customers 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 of these 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 vital 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.
