Eco Eyewear, a pioneer in sustainable eyewear, has achieved a significant milestone with its social purpose program, “One Frame, One Tree.” The program, which was founded in partnership with the non-profit group Trees for the Future in 2009, plants one tree for every Eco Eyewear frame purchased.
Thanks to the support of its customers, retailers, and Trees for the Future, Eco Eyewear has now planted over 3.3 million trees. This remarkable achievement has resulted in the sequestration of 154,629 metric tons of CO2.
The “One Frame, One Tree” program employs the Forest Garden Approach, which is a sustainable food production and agroforestry system that preserves soil and vegetation. This approach supports local farmers in producing more crops and byproducts, providing food and assets for their businesses. By planting trees in forest gardens, Eco Eyewear is restoring and supporting income, equality, and food security for farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa.
In addition to its social purpose programs, Eco Eyewear has been recognized for its efforts in sustainability. Since its founding in 2009, the brand has used only sustainable materials in all products and packaging.
Each tree planted through the “One Frame, One Tree” program captures carbon, increases biodiversity, and provides food and income for communities. Planting trees provides more than just food; it provides income, empowerment, unity, leadership, education, and even saves lives.
Eco Eyewear and Trees for the Future have planted over 3.3 million trees in 1,069 forest gardens so far, making a significant impact on how food is grown and reducing negative impacts on farmers and the planet. Join Eco Eyewear in their mission to make the world a better place, one tree at a time.
