Buy A Hammock, Plant Two Trees:
For every hammock purchased (in any size/model), we work with Trees For The Future to plant two trees in your honor around the globe. Besides giving us a place to hang our hammocks, the role trees play in protecting our planet reads like the description of every major environmental campaign combined: they generate clean air and oxygen, recycle water, reduce pollution, provide nutrients, medicine and food to both animals and humans, regulate temperature, and of course provide a habitat to countless species of animals that our world would not be the same without.
Our partnership with Trees For The Future takes the act of planting trees one very important step further - together we're using tree planting for social good as well. By helping small farmers and villages around the world with fruit & vegetable trees, shade trees, sources of livestock feed, and much more, together we're able to bring about not only environmental change but a huge amount of social good and happiness as well. What's better than that?
Together we've planted many thousands of trees across the U.S. and around the world since we began and we're just getting started.
If you own a Trek Light Hammock or have ever recommended us to your friends, take a look around next time you take a walk in the woods - you're part of something truly amazing.

Trek Light Gear isn’t a big corporation. We’re a small business with a tiny staff (Hi Mom!) that cares more about what we can do to create change and give back than our own bottom line. We don’t have shareholders or a board of directors to please, we’re just waking up each day and doing what we can to make a difference in this world - and we’re thrilled to have you along for the ride.
