“the jacket was the first “3-in-1” design to successfully hit the U.S. market”

Earth Day 2016 — Trees for the Earth

Earth Day 2016 — Trees for the Earth

Earth Day -Plant a tree
Earth Day April 22 is intended to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s natural environment. Founded by United States Senator Gaylord Nelson on April 22, 1970. Denis Hayes, who was the original national coordinator in 1970, took it international in 1990 and organised events in 141 nations.
Now entering the 46th year of a movement

Over the next five years, as Earth Day moves closer to its 50th anniversary, we’re calling on you to help us achieve one of our most ambitious goals yet —we’re planting 7.8 billion trees and we’re starting now.
Trees will be the first of five major goals we are undertaking in honor of the five-year countdown to our 50th anniversary. On their own and together, these initiatives will make a significant and measurable impact on the Earth and will serve as the foundation of a cleaner, healthier and more sustainable planet for all.
