Tommy Gun’s Original Barbershop Joins Pledge of planting one billion trees
-Partnership with TreeEra Announced-
Tommy Gun’s Original Barbershop is pleased to announce their partnership with TreeEra, a Canadian-based social venture company that supports businesses in offsetting their carbon footprint and telling their sustainability story. With the belief that small changes over time can make a big impact, Tommy Gun’s has committed to planting one tree for every retail product purchased in Shop or online at tommyguns.com - with the goal of planting over a billion trees.
Founded in Calgary by two young entrepreneurs, TreeEra provides a simple and first step to for any individual or business step off the sidelines in the fight against climate change and to reduce their carbon footprint through the community-funding the planting of trees. TreeEra proudly partners with professional planting organizations in Canada, Costa Rica and Africa. To date TreeEra’s community of businesses and individuals has planted over 100,000 trees.
“We’re excited to be supporting Tommy Gun’s Original Barbershops all across Canada in their goal to plant one billion trees,” says Co-Founder Ryan Heal. “We understand that the issue of climate change can feel daunting for any business - big or small. However, Canadian companies like Tommy Gun’s are leading the way in showcasing that it implementing sustainable initiatives don’t have to be all or nothing and that small changes over time can make a truly lasting impact for our environment.”
Keenan Fisher, Managing Partner of Tommy Gun’s says, “We are thrilled to partner with TreeEra. Making our businesses more sustainable starts with being aware of the issue at hand and understanding just how important it is to make changes — both for the businesses and the planet. In order to have healthy communities, we need clean air, natural resources and a non-toxic environment. Tommy Gun’s hope is that by planting trees we can begin to off-set our impact and ensure future generations and businesses have the natural resources available to live in an equal, if not better, way of life as current generations”.
