Green Girl Gives Back
As part of the company's commitment to creating a cleaner, more vibrant world, Green Girl will donate a portion of its net online sales to charities that help protect and preserve the environment.
Green Girl reduces our own carbon footprint by planting a tree for every canvas, lightweight and children's eco-tote we sell on-line. To accomplish this, we have partnered with American Forests, a world leader in planting trees for environmental restoration, a pioneer in the science and practice of urban forestry, and a primary communicator of the benefits of trees and forests.
American Forests is the nation's oldest nonprofit citizen's conservation organization, founded in 1875. American Forests is about action and that is the focus of their major campaigns. The organization's primary campaigns are "Tree-Planting for Environmental Restoration" and "Reversing the National Urban Tree Deficit," which encourage people to improve rural, suburban, and urban ecosystems by planting and caring for trees that provide important environmental and economic benefits including pure water, clean air, and wildlife habitat.
DAVID SUZUKI FOUNDATION

Focusing on four specific areas—oceans and sustainable fishing, climate change and clean energy, sustainability and the Nature Challenge—the Foundation uses science and education to promote solutions that conserve nature and help achieve sustainability within a generation.
