LOS ANGELES — The One Heart Movement reports it has partnered with Cherokee Uniforms, a Careismatic Brand and designer, manufacturer, and distributor of medical apparel.
Cherokee Uniforms has donated 115,000 trees to the growing One Heart Forest, to honor every healthcare worker lost to COVID-19 globally.
On an annual basis, these 115,000 trees will:
- Release 11,500 tons of oxygen, roughly the amount consumed by 14,000 people in a year.
- Absorb 2,875 tons of carbon dioxide, equivalent to taking 625 cars off the road annually.
- Reforest over 107,600 square feet of land, the size of 284 football fields.
This marks the first major collaborative effort to expand the One Heart Forest since it was announced on World Environment Day last June. The One Heart Movement is continuing to raise funds in support of its goal of planting over 5 million trees in honor of every life lost to the global pandemic.
“We are so grateful and excited to have Careismatic Brands and Cherokee Uniforms on board to support the One Heart Forest,” says Krista Kleiner, founder and executive director of The One Heart Movement.
“The One Heart Movement was inspired by the valiant efforts of healthcare workers who have put themselves on the line to save others over the course of the pandemic.
“As we have expanded to support additional local and global causes, including unification, mental health, racial injustice, empowering women and caring for our environment, we are glad we can honor the sacrifices of these healthcare professionals while bridging our environmental crisis with something more relatable—human connection.”
This partnership will take place in conjunction with Careismatic Brands’ new medical apparel launch, Euphoria by Cherokee Uniforms. Euphoria is an all-new scrubs collection inspired by nature and crafted with Sorona®, a plant-based fabric that’s breathable, soft and form-flattering.
“Together with The One Heart Movement, we are literally planting the seeds of care for future generations in the One Heart Forest, while also honoring the worldwide healthcare community,” says Michael Singer, CEO of Careismatic Brands Inc.
“These selfless individuals have repeatedly put themselves on the line to save patient lives throughout the pandemic. This forest is not only a dedication to those we have lost on the front lines, it also is planting seeds of hope in the fight against climate change.
“All of us at Careismatic Brands are deeply honored to support The One Heart Movement and its powerful mission.”
The One Heart Forest is an initiative of The One Heart Movement to contribute to the United Nations Trillion Tree Campaign while providing sustainable livelihoods among other benefits.
