Typically when you have a birthday, you're the one that's receiving the presents. But here at Original Grain we did just the opposite. March marked the 3-year anniversary since the birth of OG, and we celebrated the only way we know how, by giving back!
During the month of March, for every watch that was purchased, we planted 10 trees with the goal of planting 100,000 total trees. Partnering with Trees For The Future, we were able to not only hit our goal, but surpass it with 104,023 trees planted just in March! Planting these trees in places like Africa help provide food, jobs and educational materials to locals to improve their overall livelihood.
The progress of planting over 100,000 trees just in March will add to our success as we continue to climb towards our year long goal of planting 1 million trees in 2016! During the first quarter of the year, we have already planted around 250,000 trees, which puts us 1/4th of the way there.
Thank you all for the support and contributing to help those in need! Keep checking our social media @originalgrain for updates on the 1 million tree challenge. We are looking forward to hitting our next goal with help from all of you!
