Here is a wooden wick fact we can all get excited about; for every $100 our customers spend on our products, we will plant one tree through Trees for the Future.

Trees for the Future currently has 14 projects underway in five countries.

Since 1988, Trees for the Future has helped thousands of communities in Central America, Africa, and Asia improve their livelihoods and their environment by planting nearly 80 million trees in agroforestry and reforestation projects.
