I am not a climate activist, but I instilled in my children the importance of protecting our environment, now more than ever. I’m glad to see that many years later, my children do the same with their children. A close friend of mine told me a few months ago that he needed T-shirts for his company, and asked if I knew anyone who could help. The shirts had to include an environmental message.
I told him that I would love to collaborate with him on this idea. We are grateful to live amid the natural beauty of the Hamptons, so I wanted to give something back to nature, and developed the idea of 1tee 10trees. I was able to find a small manufacturer in Los Angeles that uses premium cotton with modern, updated fits—exactly what I was looking for.
My friend loved the concept, the T-shirts, later ordering 600 of them. This allowed us to plant 6,000 trees with our partners at onetreeplanted.org, a nonprofit organization that has put more than 20 million trees in the ground this past year. Giving back to nature feels good; that’s why a “Do Good” logo is printed on our shirts. 1tee10trees.com
