We started with an idea for a new approach to single use items. TreeSleeve was founded with a rebellious spirit and a lofty objective; to mobilize the coffee industry into a force of good against deforestation through great design.
We use 3 billion coffees sleeves per year deforesting about half a million trees. Instead, TreeSleeves are made of 100% upcycled sugarcane meaning no new trees or wildlife is destroyed to create our product. Additionally, for every TreeSleeve sold, we plant a tree in a deforested part of the world. Tree planting revitalizes communities by providing jobs, fostering economic development, and decreasing the effects of harmful natural disasters like flooding, erosion and climate change.

SCORE has been by our side from the beginning.
I've been working with SCORE mentors for a year. I came with an idea of a reusable product. With SCORE's help, a product was developed, tested and consumer tested. I could not have done this without them (SCORE)!
