"From what we get, we can make a living; what we give, however, makes a life.”
~ Arthur Ashe
So you bought your first OG watch. Now what? Sure, you’re excited to flex on your friends, but there is more to your purchase than what may initially catch the eye.
With roots stemming from the Pacific Northwest, saying Original Grain is simply inspired by nature would be an understatement. OG has committed to giving back to the elements of the outdoors that played an important role in founders Andrew and Ryan Beltran’s upbringing. By partnering with Trees for the Future, Original Grain is able to pay it forward by planting ten trees for each watch sold.
Here’s how it works:
With the help of both Trees for the Future and OG fans, Original Grain is working with 1,654 families through the “Forest Garden Program.” The program plants different crops and plants over a period of four years to give those in need the opportunity to gain new skills and support their families.
Through this simple strategy, families have been able to increase their annual income through livestock feed, sustainable foods, and firewood. The initiative has helped 86% of those in Senegal, Africa; eighteen percent of which did not have access to enough food in the previous year.
We can’t thank you enough for helping change the lives of people in need. All of the proceeds we continue to donate are felt & cherished by families in Senegal. Join the OG FAM, Thank You!
