"From a small seed, a mighty trunk may grow." - Aeschylus
At Studio Pia, we are all too aware of the environmental impact the fashion industry has on the world and being a part of that; we wanted to give something back.
For every product sold on our site, we plant one tree. By planting trees, we hope to help offset our carbon footprint. Since launching our tree planting scheme in 2019, we have planted a total of 10,993 trees, helping to create a healthier climate, protect biodiversity and help reforestation efforts worldwide.
In April 2022, we began working with Ecologi, an environmental organisation whose goal is to help millions of individuals and businesses have a positive impact on the environment and climate through planting trees, installing solar panels and wind farms, and investing in infrastructure for communities all around the world. You can view our Ecologi profile here
to learn more about how your money is being used, where trees are being planted and the exact projects you are helping to fund through our donations.
