WHY WE PLANT TREES
At Essential Glasses, our goal is to offer great sunglasses for a great price, but we also think it is important to take care of the planet while we're at it. Not just to offset our CO2 emissions, but also to contribute to the regrowing of wildlife habitats and raising awareness.
Being an online-only company, we knew that shipping our products wasn't going to be great for the planet. Society's shift towards shopping online is taking its toll on our planet, so we wanted to make a positive contribution while involving our costumers in the process. We partnered up with Tree-Nation, an organisation dedicated to fighting climate change.
With four major projects in Nicaragua, Colombia, Niger and Madagascar, and with over 110 000 people and 1000 companies engaged, we believe this organisation can make a meaningful impact on a global scale.
That is why we will plant 1 tree with every purchased item at our store.
HOW IT WORKS
So you've made a purchase or are thinking of making a purchase at our store, fantastic! After you've placed your order you will first receive a confirmation email from us about your order, with a receipt of your purchase. You will also receive a separate email with the title 'Essential Glasses offered you a tree on Tree-Nation.' For every purchased item at our store, we will plant 1 tree (example: 5 pairs of sunglasses = 5 trees). If you do not see it in your inbox, please check under promotions or your spam inbox.
The email will look like the image below and contain a link that will take you to our tree nation page where you can plant your tree
Once you've planted your tree, you will see a page like the one below:
You can leave us a message, read about the species of tree you planted, its CO2 offset and what planting project you contributed to.
You can also download your own tree certificate with all the information.
Cool right? Now make your first purchase so that, together, we can start reforesting the planet!
