As we swim into the warm summer months, we’ve been daydreaming of all things ocean — including the beloved creatures that call it home. That’s why we’re so pleased to announce that we have teamed up with One Tree Planted to plant a tree in the Pacific Northwest region of North America for every print sold in the MUTTS Shop this season.
How Do Trees Help Whales?
The Southern Resident Orca species is on the brink of extinction, threatened by habitat contamination, interference by watercraft, and a shrinking food supply. Each year, as the orca migrates, it depends upon the West Coast Chinook salmon and its habitat. Planting trees along the coast in the Pacific Northwest reduces water contamination, lowers toxicity of harmful pollutants, protects salmon spawning grounds, and increases orca food supply and quality. This effort to bring balance to the ecosystem is critical to the future of the Southern Resident Orca and has a cascading impact throughout the region.
In April, we announced that we had joined up with One Tree Planted, and since, we’ve been able to plant nearly 200 trees! Take a gander at some of our favorite ocean-themed strips and join us in protecting what we love.
