Happy Earth Day!
As a company born in the Pacific Northwest, all things rain and trees are woven deep into our DNA. We’ve incorporated our love for the outdoors in some of our awesome socks and wanted to take a moment to share our appreciation for the environment around us beyond the funky products we bring to market.
Every month, we choose a special theme for our monthly subscription boxes. For the month of April, and in honor of Earth Day on the 22nd, we felt that it was important to include some special outdoor-themed sock styles. This way, our Sock It To Me community can celebrate together by wearing them this month. As a subscriber, you’ll also notice a special donation that’s been made on your behalf.
For those unfamiliar with Friends of Trees, it’s a charitable organization with long-standing roots in the Portland, Oregon area – a community we’ve been a part of since 2004. Friends of Trees inspires people to improve the natural world around them through a simple solution: Planting Trees. Together. Since their founding in 1989, they’ve served the PNW region by planting over 850,000 trees and native shrubs. A simple mission with a massive impact and we’re delighted to support their cause.
In addition to supporting Friends of Trees we’ve made a recent conscious effort to move to a new freight forwarder at Sock It To Me. One who is very focused on environmental efforts and offsetting supply chain environmental impacts by planting a tree for every shipment booked, every time. We’re thrilled to be working with Green Worldwide to have a positive impact on our environment and thrilled they share similar values in wanting to do our best for the world we call home and building a community of socially and environmentally conscious individuals.
Other ways you could celebrate and get involved in Earth Day throughout the month of April have been provided via https://www.earthday.org. We encourage you to join us in attending their digital event April 22, 2021 where they’ll host workshops, panel discussions, and offer special performances. Everything we do together will make the world a greener and healthier place!
