Wooden jewelery and watches are incredibly sturdy, beautiful and above all durable. However, we do believe that far too much wood is being cut all over the world. This therefore leads to a dichotomy. Because on the one hand we want to offer sustainable products, but on the other hand we don't want to contribute too much to the massive deforestation of our world.
That's why we work together with 'One Tree Planted'. This is an international charity that is committed to the reforestation of critical forests and nature reserves. Woodystore works together with local farmers and authorities to plant new, native trees in the Montane forests of Uganda. These forests are located in the Albertine Rift, a beautiful place that is home to a lot of flora and fauna. Due to the changing climate and massive deforestation in Uganda, nature and many animal species are at risk. In the future, our trees will become home to countless birds and other animals, such as the chimpanzee.
For every bracelet or anklet sold, we donate no less than one whole tree to this area. We donate no less than two trees for every watch sold!
