SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--This Earth Day, Verishop is excited to announced its “One Order, One Tree” initiative to plant a tree for every customer order in the next year from the online-shopping destination’s Responsible Shop, which includes a collection of values-conscious brands.
On the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, Verishop will kick off the initiative with the planting of 50,000 trees through the 501(c)(3) non-profit global reforestation organization, OneTreePlanted. These first 50,000 trees will be planted in the name of actress, director and sustainability advocate, Bryce Dallas Howard, and the 13 partner brands who are joining Verishop in supporting this effort.
“Environmental consciousness has been a part of Verishop since the start,” said Imran Khan, co-founder and CEO of Verishop. “Since launch, we have supported sustainable brands through our Responsible Shop, have been carbon-neutral on every outbound shipment through the purchase of carbon offsets that go toward reforestation and environmental restoration, and used 100% recycled packaging for our boxes and dunnage. We are excited to continue doing our part for the Earth through our `One Order, One Tree’ initiative, alongside these like-minded partners.”
Verishop’s Responsible Shop is a collection of values-driven brands where customers can easily find products that are sustainable, philanthropic, organic, fair-trade, cruelty-free or clean beauty. The partner brands on the “One Order, One Tree” initiative include Deadwood, Vitamin A, Everest Isles, Banks Journal, Native Youth, Frank Green, w&p, Modern Sprout, Common Good, Fekkai, Biophile, Ghost Democracy and Lily Lolo.
Howard, an actress in Jurassic World franchise movies and director on the highly-anticipated Star Wars series, The Mandalorian, has long been a champion of consumer sustainability in fashion and households. The multi-hyphenate creator and mom of two was the recipient of the Environmental Media Association’s Green Parent Award in 2019. Through this partnership, she has curated her favorite products from Verishop’s Responsible Shop for shoppers to browse. For every order of products from the Responsible Shop through Earth Day 2021, Verishop will fund the planting of an additional tree.
“Trees, with all their majesty and strength, are an essential part of our environment,” Howard said. “Planting trees and restoring forests are some of the most effective ways to combat carbon emissions and climate change.”
