WeWood Watches -150K Trees and Planting


In honor of Earth Day, SWELL salutes a brand making the world a better place. WeWood’s “Global ReLeaf Campaign” fights deforestation by planting a tree for every one of their wood watches sold. They have proudly planted over 150K trees, and the growing popularity of the lightweight wood watches is bound to “reLeaf” many more forests.
