At TALA, we challenge the fashion industry to make sustainable style the norm by using the most sustainable and ethically sourced materials to create versatile wardrobe staples you love. Transparency, as one of our core values, doesn’t only extend to what we do and how we operate, but also to highlight the positive impact you make when you shop sustainably. We wanted to go one step further which is why in this edit of TALA Talks, we’ll be delving into our new initiative with Treepoints to help every penny you spend go that step further for the good of our planet. We’ll plant a tree for every order placed between 15th and 21st July!
Since May 2019, we have brought sustainable styles at competitive prices to the market without the need to compromise on performance, design or fit to disrupt the fast fashion and activewear industries as well as help to make sustainable style the norm. We are incredibly proud to be partnering with Treepoints, an organisation that helps individuals and businesses lower their impact on the climate, and rewards them for doing so. Within this period, every purchase you make will see a tree planted, absorbing CO2 from the atmosphere to mitigate climate change. All projects selected by Treepoints are verified to the highest standards, as well as having a positive impact on global sustainable development.
A MEANINGFUL IMPACT FOR OUR EARTH
Treepoints’ mission is very simple - to help all individuals and businesses do good for the planet by taking responsibility for their impact.
Our approach has been, is and always will be to normalise sustainable style and reduce our global footprint through each product we launch. According to Treepoints, if fashion were a country, its emissions would rank as highly as France, Germany and the UK combined! Treepoints co-founder Anthony Collias stated: “The fashion industry is a serious contributor to global emissions, which are worsening the climate crisis. It’s great to see brands like TALA taking positive actions to call out this industry and set an example for how to make activewear sustainable and affordable. We’re proud to be partnering with TALA to help them do even more for the environment by planting trees with every order.”
Something has to change. Our partnership with Treepoints builds on this climate positive action, adding to our world’s precious forests and natural landscapes with every purchase.
Treepoints offer a monthly subscription plan for both individuals and businesses with each subscription offsetting carbon by funding the highest standard climate projects around the world. Treepoints members get to see their impact brought to life, remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere, and keep track of their progress.
With every purchase made via our website between 15th and 21st July, Treepoints will manage the plantation of trees in Haiti, Honduras, Indonesia, Kenya, Madagascar, Mozambique, Nepal, and Nicaragua, spreading the positive impact around the world. It’s no secret that trees are one of the best tools we have for fighting climate change. Not only do they absorb CO2 from the atmosphere, they also halt the spread of desertification, improve soil quality, restart water cycles, and provide homes for wildlife.
Planting trees with Treepoints bring socio-economic benefits for communities around the world, empowering and lifting people out of poverty. Tree planting creates stable employment opportunities and a source of income for people who need it most. This allows people to afford medicine, build houses, and send their children to school.
Every tree planting project is carefully monitored to ensure its continued success, not only guaranteeing the trees aren’t chopped down, but also that they deliver the intended additional sustainable development benefits for local communities.
