To celebrate Earth week (April 21-25), Original Grain has partnered with Friends of Trees, an organization committed to planting trees in an effort to give back to the environment. For the duration of Earth Week, Original Grain will donate 10% off all profits received from the sale of their one-of-a-kind wood watches.
As natives of the Pacific Northwest, the Original Grain Founders are going back to their roots to partner with Portland based, Friends of Trees. Since 1989, Friends of Trees has planted more than half a million trees and continues to do their part in making the environment better.
“We’re really excited about the opportunity to partner with an organization that is based in the Northwest and does so much to give back to our environment. It’s a great fit and we’re happy to be donating to such a worthy cause,” says Original Grain Founder Ryan Beltran. Although now based San Diego, Original Grain makes a point to remember where they come from and what inspired them to make these watches in the first place.
Recently, there has been an emergence of lifestyle products that incorporate natural materials, including wood. Original Grain has adopted this practice by using 100% all-natural wood in their watch designs and applied it to fashion. From April 21st-25th, Original Grain will proudly celebrate mother earth and show their appreciation for the natural resources available.
Since 1970 Earth Day has been celebrated as a day of education about environmental issues. The goal was to raise public awareness of air and water pollution and bring these issues into the national spotlight. The holiday is now celebrated nationally and is often extended to be a full Earth Week. A week, Original Grain and other brands across the country are utilizing to give back.
