TRI Handkerchiefs

The Problem

Our wish is a planet Earth with more trees. We are starting here in Indonesia by empowering indigenous communities in Kalimantan and Sumatra to protect their precious forests.

Our Plan

Our project uses handkerchiefs as a unique tool to tell the world about the critical issue of deforestation. We use our project to communicate widely, but also to raise money for grassroots organizations (mostly indigenous) that are on the ground in places where forests (especially peat land forests) and the creatures that live in them are threatened. We raise money by partnering with local businesses that advertise on tourist maps we print on handkerchiefs. We also raise money through the sale of these handkerchiefs.
