With the new initiative, the actor, 39, and clothing company are taking their collaboration – announced in November of last year – as they pledge, “continued support of the American Forests’ mission to protect and restore threatened forest ecosystems around the world.”
Beginning during Earth Week in April, Eddie Bauer is set to increase the amount of trees planted by “matching customer donations under The One Tree Initiative, giving one tree for every dollar up to 75,000 trees.
For those who can’t wait to get involved, donations are also being accepted directly through the American Forests website or texting program, in which donators can plant five trees when they text ONETREE – which automatically gives a $5 donation – to 80077.
