WeWood recently supported the planting of 4,000 trees into American Forest’s Kirtland’s Warbler Habitat Creation Project in Michigan. So often we understand the value of replanting trees, but do not realized how important the restoration of trees contributes to the housing and safety of countless species of plants, animals and birds. Over 20 years ago, a Kirtland’s Warbler habitat project was American Forest’s very first Global ReLeaf project. The Kirtland’s Warbler is an endangered song-bird. The brashly singing, beautifully plumaged Kirtland’s Warbler is five-plus inches of unabashed energy cloaked in gray, black, brown, and bright yellow. Weighing in at approximately...

Seattle is losing trees in its parks and urban forests. The aging public forest is dying, being slowly choked away by invasive plants or killed by disease. There are 60 fewer acres of parks and nature that were shaded or protected by trees in 2007. Seattle does have a goal of increasing its stock of trees. Seattle has a long history of conservation efforts, and parts of the city-owned forests were established as long ago as 100 years –so although it is natural for trees of this age to begin to die, council members are committed to the continuation of...

From grade school all the way to adulthood, American’s are taught that tree’s are important. Trees provide oxygen for us to breathe, are more effective coolers than air conditioners, combat erosion and even prevent noise pollution. We understand that the quality of our world forests reflects the health and wellbeing of our societies. Although these are great reasons to protect and conserve our natural forests, scientific research reveals that trees and forests provide important health benefits to adults and children.
Research shows that trees have a restorative quality that helps people feel and function better. For example, drivers exposed...

The United Nations General Assembly declared 2011 as the International Year of Forests to raise awareness on sustainable management, conservation and sustainable development of all types of forests. With support from the U.S. Forest Service, NASF has partnered with the American Forest Foundation to act as co-chairs of an ad-hoc steering committee to develop, guide and facilitate plans for the U.S. celebration. Life as we know it depends on sustainable practices and protection of our primary forests. Edward Norton, UN Goodwill Ambassador, states, ““Without large healthy forests there would be no oxygen to breathe, no clean water, much less water...

With fashion weeks around the world well under way, it’s fun to find eco and earthly trends on the runway. Wood is back in a big way in two leading fashion trends that hit the spring and resort runways: Tribal prints and the 1970’s trend. With 70’s inspired accessories, oversized pieces have been ushered in by designers such as Michael Kors and Chole. Chunky bracelets and watches adorn the wrists of fashionistas, and oversized sunglasses and shoes in experimental materials such as crepe, tweed and wood complete the bohemian, oversized look. Tribal fashions are back as well, but with...

A daring, unisex trend that continues to be a hit on and off the runways is the oversized accessory trend. Chuncky bracelets, heavily layered necklaces, and oversized knits and hats all embody the oversized style. Wrist watches have really explored this trend, bringing fashion and functionality back to the world of timekeeping. Heavy chain-links, sporty rubber wrist bands, and large faced timepiece styles in fresh materials such as canvas and wood bring a personalized touch to this blooming fashion.

Taking vacations during spring and summer can be hard on our environment. Printing boarding passes, disposable bottles and trays for every meal takes a toll on paper resources. Hotel stays and transportation can expand the carbon footprint a little more than anyone would want or expect. This no longer has to be the circumstance –Sweden recently opened their first-in-kind stunning mirror-walled Tree House Hotel, set in the pristine forests of Northern Sweden. The Microcube is a prefabricated cube accessed via a ladder that runs straight up from the ground into the heart of the unit. The Mirrorcube is completely...

The restoration efforts continue at the Los Padres Conifer Forest after the devastating fires of 2006, 2007 and 2008 that displaced many niche ecosystems. The 1,000 Trees that we donated from your WE-Wood purchases are being planted throughout the restoration site. The 2007 wild fires at the Los Padres Conifer Forest raged for four months, burning 240,000 acres of forest. The tragedy of forest fires associated with the loss of these trees is erosion, loss of vegetation, loss of population diversity and mudslides. Issues associated with erosion go far beyond the forest –run off caused by erosion flow in to...

ECO-CHIC WAY TO TELL TIME
Last week when I was in Las Vegas for several fashion tradeshows, I mentioned in my previous post that I'd come across some awesome new brands at the POOL show. I brought home a few new pieces and one of them that I can't stop wearing is my watch from the company, WeWood.
"WEWOOD has emerged out of Italy as an emblem of eco-luxury and design, committed to the health of...
