By 2020, it is projected that one million trees will be planted by WeWOOD Watches, and you can contribute to that number. With the purchase of each WeWOOD wood watch, the company has guaranteed that they will plant a new tree. With over 300,000 trees already planted, these watches have sparked interest in those seeking environmentally friendly products, and have been supported by numerous celebrities and media forums. A list of actors and actresses, musicians, dancers and authors have sported these accessories, including Colin Firth, Eric Stonestreet, Jesse Williams, Mekhi Phifer, Daryl Hannah, Mariel Hemingway, Ali Nejad, Christina Milian, Lance Bass, A.J. McLean, Ke$ha, APL. DE. AP, Taboo, Taylor Hicks, Mark Ballas, and Paris Hilton. And the excitement of these watches has been detailed by a range of fashion, environmentally-focused, and even business magazines, TV shows, and online sources such as:
Countless gift guides, both printed and online have featured this product, and magazines and blogs across the U.S., the U.K., South Africa, Italy, France and Spain have suggested this as a company to support. They have even been advertised in the heart of Times Square! So no matter what drives your style and interests, WeWOOD’s notoriety proves that this is a product which can connect to an enormous and diverse audience. Trend setters approve of the fashion and you can be sure of the environmental responsibility, when you purchase a WeWOOD Watch.
This modern design of such a standard accessory was first created in Florence, Italy, in 2010. Later that same year, the first WeWOOD storefront opened in Los Angeles, California. WeWOOD Watches now offers more than eighty styles of men’s and women’s watches, made from such trees as African Blackwood, Verawood, Maple, Tasmanian Blackwood, and Reclaimed Teak wood. Materials are sourced from around the world, and these woods are considered highly resilient, dense and durable, and are often the most admired trees in various world cultures. These woods are often repurposed from other products, to give new life to the wood. Your watch is durable, sustainable and aesthetically pleasing. Whether you frequent an office and are in search of an elegant, classic design to pair with any suit; or thrive in the outdoors, and need a watch that boasts athletic appeal, you can find the style you desire. Furthermore, these watches are fully adjustable; WeWOOD watches has developed a tool that allows you to safely, yet easily add or take out links, for the most comfortable fit. Delicate fabrics are safe with this wood because it has a finely finished, smooth surface. And while some watches may boast weight as a sign of luxury, these watches are sure to impress without weighing your arm down. Each watch is constructed to a particular design standard, while offering distinct features from the tree that it was created from. Rich grains, depths of color, and markings may differ, but expert craftspeople build both the watch band and clock with the highest levels of construction and care.
WeWOOOD is also concerned about your own health. They make their watches only from all-natural wood, that is proven chemical free. And the inner workings, which do include metal, are wood-backed, creating a product that is hypoallergenic for sensitive skin. The inner workings offer top quality design as well; almost all the components are metal for structural integrity. The WeWOOD watches feature the Miyota technology, which is dependable yet affordable. And while you might think that because of the design, and the celebrity endorsements, these watches are unattainable for a moderate income, they are in fact very budget friendly. The watches are $200 or less. So while the rich and famous might flash their watch, it is not to insight envy, but to truly demonstrate the power and accessibility of sustainable resources.
WeWOOD has partnered with “Trees for the Future,” which works to relieve damage to our ecosystems caused by natural disasters, and deforestation, specifically in Ghana. This organization, which is part of the larger “TREES Project,” plants trees, and then helps develop sustainable methods to be used by the local communities, to protect the work they undertake. WeWOOD has also partnered with “American Forests,” which is the oldest national nonprofit conservation organization in the United States. American Forests plants trees destroyed by disasters such as wildfires, most notably in the Bitterroot National Forest in Montana and Idaho, Arizona’s Kaibab National Forest, and the Los Angeles National Forest. WeWOOD watches have contributed to this organization in three forests and with over 54,000 trees. One example are the 5,000 Jeffrey, Sugar, Ponderosa and Coulter pines that were planted in an area devastated by drought, bark beetles and wildfire. So help join the cause, purchase a watch, and actively participate in the mantra: “We plant a tree for every watch sold.”
