Wood is one of our favourite materials; it's versatile, natural & beautiful but, despite the fact it really does grow on trees, there's not an endless supply - at least not if we carry on using it in the way we do. That's why we've partnered up with PerkEarth, a local Bristol based charity to help us plant trees for each wooden product sold and offset our carbon emissions.
We commit to planting a tree for every wooden phone case, skate deck or art deck sold on Illustrate. PerkEarth plant trees across North America, Latin America, Asia and Africa with a focus on regenerating areas following forest fires, mud slides and other disasters. Not just focused on the environment, PerkEarth look to build and empower communities in all the areas they work.
To date we've planted over 4500 trees across North America, Latin America, Asia & Africa, offsetting 46,638kgs of carbon.
