We Need More Trees

2011 is the International Year of Forests, as declared by the United Nations. This is to raise awareness and strengthen the sustainable forest management, conservation and sustainable development of all types of forests for the benefit of current and future generations.

To help spread the word, and because we love trees, we designed some products to celebrate the International Year of the Forests. Send your wishes (whether New Year's, birthdays, or just a hello) with a greeting card or re-use a bag by following the stars and creating more trees and biodiversity. We also hand-printed a limited edition of 50 t-shirts.

The user or giver is invited to take some time and reflect while connecting the stars. This can be done either by using a pen, or by stitching.
