We plant a tree with every item purchased on our store. Purchase 3 Asha Handicrafts treasures & we'll plant 3 trees — offsetting carbon from shipping by reforesting lands with native flora, not quick grow tree farms.


We do this with the help of Ecologi & The Eden Reforestation Project. They partner with villages committed to restoring their forests. Hiring and training local villagers to plant new trees.


They only plant native tree species. And the villages protect their new forests because they have a vested interest in them. See more here.
