With each backpack sold, we plant 10 trees.
You’ll probably already realise that the Jajaman team simply love trees. After all, our backpack simply wouldn’t be on anyone’s back or pack a single thing without them.
The cork our backpack is made from literally grows on trees, and because we want to make sure we give back as much as we take from the natural environment, we’ve teamed up with Trees For The Future at trees.org to plant millions of trees to help families affected by poverty in Africa.
Not just any old trees, of course. And not cork trees. Their successful Forest Garden program is helping families plant fast-growing fruit and hardwood trees as well as food crops, so they can all become more self-sufficient, which is a great idea.
But finding the people and resources to plant trees across Africa isn’t something that grows on trees. That’s why, when you make just a 5 dollar donation, your kind pledge will pay for the planting of 50 trees in sub-Saharan Africa.
