We use a lot of wood. It’s important to us that it comes from sustainable sources, and we do our part to nourish and regenerate the earth. Mantis donates a portion of our profits to the organization TreeSisters, a grassroots network of women planting over two million trees a year. Check out their work if you’re interested!
