Ten Tree

There seems to be a trend happening here, but I can’t help but write about all these amazing organizations who are so innovative in creating such unique and charitable products within the retail market.

As featured on Canada’s very own Dragons Den, Ten Tree Apparel hits us with amazing new designs in philanthropic fashions, featuring a wide variety of choices for both men and women. The premise behind this organization is to repopulate our environments, in Canada as well as in several other countries around the world including Haiti, Ethiopia and the Philippines, with native species of trees. For every item of clothing sold through the organization, ten trees (hence the name) will be planted in hopes to take responsibility for the future of the environment by addressing the issues we are currently facing.

Overall, I think this is a great cause that truly captures the needs and desires of our generation, those being responsible, affordable and comfortable clothes for an important cause. Here are a few of my favourite pieces but check out this link to see more!

RYC Brain Campaign

It’s -24 today and I’m not down for that. Not only does my body disagree entirely with frigid weather but I also am hatless, a.k.a. my ears are crying in the wind.

Naturally, I’m in the market for a cap and I think I’ve found the perfect one. A friend of mine who co-founded Rock Your Cause , a company selling awareness apparel to advocate for a variety causes relevant to Canadians, told me about their latest cause, the ‘Brain Campaign’. Here’s a little tidbit from their website that describes the campaign better than I ever could:

This years “cause on campus” is a game changer. The Brain Campaign is in support ofThree To Be, an organization that advocates and raises funds to support and advance the development of innovative research, education and therapies for children with neurological disorders.

We’re going “head first” into philanthropy (once again) with cool new toques and this time we’re introducing a rocking flat cap snapback into the mix. It’s all about keeping our noggins warm and in style while advocating and raising funds for the neurological disorder cause.

So that’s that. A sweet najavo inspired toque with proceeds going towards a good cause? I’m sold.

Check out their sweet designs below, and follow this link to their online shop to grab your own!
