Designs By Uchita partners with reforestation non profit One Tree Planted

Designs By Uchita (DBU) is proud to be a part of the “One for One” Initiative Dedicated To Planting Trees Around The World. 

DBU, a sustainable handmade jewelry designer, today announced a partnership with One Tree Planted that aims to plant 50,000 trees for landscape restoration in the next 5 years. For every product purchased, DBU will plant two trees on behalf of their customers.

“Working with One Tree Planted is a great fit for DBU,” said DBU founder and Chief Executive Officer, Uchita Shah. “Sustainability is at the core of our business model, and while we make a tremendous impact by up-cycling waste and discarded metal parts, it’s great to have another way to give back and help the environment.”

The objectives of this new partnership include:
• Supporting global reforestation efforts
• Empowering consumers with sustainable actions
• Raising awareness about the importance of ecosystem restoration

Planting trees is consistently identified as one of the best ways to combat the damaging effects of climate change. Trees help to clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat for over 80 percent of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. Trees also provide lasting social impact by providing jobs to over 1.6 billion people, empowering women in underdeveloped nations, and supporting communities that are devastated by environmental damage.

“We are excited for the opportunity to work with DBU on such an impactful project,” said One Tree Planted founder and Chief Environmental Optimist, Matt Hill. “We admire the company’s commitment to planting 2 trees for every product that is sold. It’s a prime example of how small businesses can make a positive impact for our planet.”

The partnership is designed to be a simple way for customers to give back and get involved in global reforestation. For every piece of jewelry that is sold from DBU’s inventory, the company will give $2 to One Tree Planted to plant two trees. The trees are planted by local partner organizations and community volunteers in areas where deforestation has occurred. To learn more about this partnership, please visit
