Help Wyclef Jean and Timberland Reforest Haiti

Purchasing eco-friendly boots can plant trees on the singer's native island.

Facing environmental degradation, economic hardship, and political turmoil, the people of Haiti have a lot to worry about. One of the island's most famous living natives, Wyclef Jean, is working hard to change that. He says:
People seem to know Haiti only by the statistics about how bad things are there. The majority of its 8 million residents live on less than $1 per day. Unemployment is close to 80 percent, and more than half the population is under 21 years old. Haiti is the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere.

Now, thanks to Wyclef's efforts and a partnership with Timberland, you can help improve the situation in Haiti.

Wyclef has teamed up with Timberland to sell a new line of eco-friendly footwear and apparel. Including 16 different boots, t-shirts designed by Haitian children, and an assortment of eco-friendly clothing and hats, the portions of the profits from the line will support the Yele Haiti foundation.

Timberland has pledged $2 from every pair of boots to support the foundation's reforestation projects. As Wyclef explains:

The objective of Yele Haiti is to restore pride and a reason to hope, and for the whole country to regain the deep spirit and strength that is part of our heritage.

Even the small contribution a pair of boots might make will help. -planetgreen.discovery
