Creations that plant trees
We believe that art and fashion can help bring back beauty into our world.
Behind each TREEZ accessory, there is much more than just one contemporary fashion or lifestyle item.
There are also trees. Trees that you can wear as a sign of your contribution to a more meaningful world.
We plant trees on your behalf each time you buy one of our products.
The trees are planted and looked after by men and women around the world whose living and farming conditions improve thanks to their tree planting activity. .
HOW DOES IT WORK?
- 1. Order your Treez accessory from our e-shop. For each item you buy, one or several trees will be planted.
- 2. Once you have received your order, enter your 'Treez Code' (located on the packaging) on our website to geolocate your tree and find out about the project.
- 3. Join the #TreezMovement and its community! Connect again and again, exchange, share, breathe!

All our creations are designed so as to limit their impact on the environment: Solid wood, little size – little weight, minimal packaging, limited transport. We continuously work at reducing the environmental footprint of our products.
MADE IN FRANCE
Our creations are made in France, from raw materials that are either made in France or made close to France. Our beech wood comes from the Jura region and helps support a key economic sector of the region. Distances are thus shortened and ou carbon footprint is limited. Even our waxed cotton cords are manufactured in France. Everything is assembled in France before being sent to your house.
Almost all our production is made in our partner ESAT (Organizations that employ disabled workers and support their professional integration).
Perfection is an absolute, action, by definition, an imperfection. Treez is a project with a strong social and environmental ambition. The expertise of the founders on social and environmental issues and selection of partners according to their ethics and their own commitments make it a demanding project, serious and ambitious.
But, as any action, ours is far from perfect and neutral. And we hope it is approaching more and more over time. We have already identified some areas for improvement on which we wish to commit ourselves and report regularly.

Cords : We try to focus cords made in France but due to the diversification of colors used for our new products, this is not always the case. In addition, so far we have still not succeeded in sourcing organic cotton cords and / or harvested in the European Union. We are also in constant search of innovations and new materials options. For example, we would love to replace cotton with polyester from recycled. But what we have found, for now, is black and only black … If you find other items to improve Treez, both in terms of quality as our approach, please contact us! We like to welcome criticism and feedback with listening and enthusiasm. IMPROVEMENTS ALREADY CARRIED OUT: UPDATE October 2014 Plastic packaging : “The least impacting waste is that which does not produce.” This saying has inspired us and, not finding sustainable alternative, reliable and biodegradable, we chose to remove the plastic packaging Treez. However, we remain attentive to any innovations in packaging! Code Label : Initially the code to access his personal space was located on a label scratch plastic, covered with a scratch-off ink (with questionable composition …). Now we use a small paper tag hidden under the cord.
