Hire your Dance Costumes to Plant Trees!

11th September 2020

We've always taken our environmental responsibilities very seriously.

Hiring your dance costumes is already much better for the environment than buying them, but we aren't stopping there:

Each time you hire costumes from us, we will plant trees.

We've partnered with Eden Reforestation Projects, a leading non-profit reforestation organisation who plant trees all over the world.

Employ to Plant

The great thing about Eden Projects is that they employ the local villagers in each location to plant, maintain and nurture the trees.

This way of working starts by giving villagers a decent income and as healthy forests begin to emerge, the negative effects of deforestation start to disappear.

Communities benefit both in the long and the short term.

So many benefits

Reforestation has so many benefits apart from just carbon reduction:

Animal habitats are restored, rainfall patterns are restored, water tables rise and purity improves, flooding and soil erosion stops and soil quality improves. This leads to increased crop yields, better access to food, improved local economies, a decrease in extreme poverty and even a reduction in villagers at risk of slavery.

Project Regions

Trees are planted in regions all over the world, including Nepal, Madagascar, Haiti, Indonesia, Mozambique, Kenya, Honduras and Nicaragua.

Doing the right thing

When you hire your dance costumes from us, we will make a donation to Eden Projects to plant a certain number of trees.

There is no cost to you, and you don't need to get your hands dirty - we take care of everything!
