A big part of the motive behind creating Keepwood Eyewear was the desire to give back. Since most of our products are crafted from wood and bamboo, we thought it fitting to partner with Trees for the Future, who believe in the power of trees to save lives as much as we do.
Their approach is simple: Plant Trees. Feed Families. Change Lives.
Their Forest Garden Program is a simple, replicable and scalable approach with proven success. By planting specific types of trees and crops in a systematic manner over a four year period, families can change their lives forever. Forest Gardens provide families with sustainable food sources, livestock feed, products to sell, fuel wood and up to a 500% increase in their annual income.
Trees for the Future currently runs 14 projects in 5 countries in Sub Saharan Africa. They are focusing on implementing their Forest Garden Programs in Uganda, Kenya, Senegal, Tanzania, and Cameroon as these are the areas they have had the biggest impact and seen the most amazing results.
The donation we make to Trees for the Future from your Keepwood Eyewear purchase will have a direct impact on the earth and lives of the people who need it most. By helping them plant trees, you give families the ability to transition from unsustainable farming techniques to a Forest Garden system. Your donation not only sustains and empowers them, but also changes their lives forever.
