Oboz & Small Woods
Here at Oboz, we love the outdoors. And the way we figure, the more trees, the more outdoors for us all to enjoy. That's why we've planted a tree for every pair of Oboz sold, that's well over 2 million to date with our Oboz and One More Tree initiative.
In line with the One More Tree initiative, 2019 has seen the continuation of our partnership with NGO, Small Woods. Our partnership aims to raise awareness of our small woodlands and our native tree species that grow across the UK, through engagement.
Who Are Small Woods?
Small Woods is a UK wide charity led by the principle objective ‘to further education in the conservation of small woodlands’. Ian Baker, CEO of the organisation and the team at Small Woods note that over half of the UK's small woodlands are 'neglected, overlooked and undervalued'. They believe that through work with woodland owners, practitioners, local authorities, craftspeople and the general public we can combat this. Which is where we come in..
Our 2019 Projects
Summer 2019 - Try A Pair, Plant A Tree
Silver Birch seeds are sourced by our woodland charity partner Small Woods® and for simply trying on a pair of Oboz footwear in one our retailer stores you will receive a packet containing a British Silver Birch seed to plant.
So why not try on a pair at your local Oboz stockist and watch your Birch tree grow right in your back garden or in your favourite spot out in the Peaks!
Autumn 2019 - Get Rooted Tree Planting Events
This Autumn will see the first ever Oboz & Small Woods Tree Planting Events here in UK.
The Events will be held at Small Woods certified planting centres in two of the UK's most beautiful National Parks; the Lake District and Snowdonia.
We will be collaborating with our retail partner S.R Cunninghams for these events.
