One tree planted for every item sold
Happiness Boutique was born in Summer 2013 with the idea of bringing more positivity and happiness to this world through delivering beautifully designed, high quality jewelry products, as well as sharing our own, personal philosophy of happiness: carrying out small acts of kindness where we can.
As a token of the gratitude we have for our customers supporting us over the past few years, as well as to honor our initial commitment of creating more happiness, we teamed up with Trees for the Future where we donate a portion of the profit from each product sold to help fund the tree planting initiative.
We are very proud to say that to date, Happiness Boutique, together with Trees for the Future, has been responsible for the planting of more than 50,000 trees in Tumuli, Singida region in Tanzania.
We are humbled and grateful to be able to contribute to the improvement of the planet’s environment in a small but meaningful way, and to do our part in moving towards a more sustainable future. We look forward to continuing to work with Trees for the Future, and together with your support, we will be able to create an even bigger, and more positive impact that lasts.
Why planting trees?
For a while climate change has been a real concern for many people, and we ourselves feel the urge to help, even if it’s in a very small way. We believe that instead of being concerned or being troubled by the problem the most effective action we can take is to start with small steps.
We want our customers to be able to enjoy our products and to have the joy of gifting beautifully made items to beloved ones without feeling guilty that more paper and more material were consumed in the process. Planting trees is a great way to offset the carbon consumption involved.
Also, nature has always been a source of inspiration for our own happiness and well-being, as well as our product design. What better way is there to create more happiness than having more forests on our planet?
How do I know if the trees were actually planted?
You will be able to find detailed information about our contribution and impact on Trees for the Futures official website. You are also more than welcome to get in touch with members from the organization to verify any information mentioned on our website.
Can you tell me more about Trees for the Future?
Trees for the Future is a verified and trusted non-profit organization that was founded in 1989 by Dave and Grace Deppner, who were volunteers in the Philippines in the early 1970s. Now, after almost three decades in the field, the organization works with over 3,000 different farming families, mostly in Sub-Saharan Africa and has planted over 155 million trees in dozens of countries. As a result, the initiative has revitalized hundreds of thousands of acres of degraded land while improving the lives of thousands of families.
What is your relationship with Trees for The Future?
As in our official promise “One tree planted for every product sold”, we have made a commitment to Trees for the Future to plant 1 tree for each and every item we sell. With our donations, Trees for the Future helps local farmers plant trees and give families the ability to make the transition from unsustainable farming techniques to a Forest Garden System.
