The funds to be raised from the proceeds of the sales of the shirts will support the Partners for Forest Project of the Fostering People’s Education, Empowerment, and Enterprise (FPE3) together with our community partner, the Calawis Punlaan Bayan, Inc. (CPBI).
Partners for Forest Project is an initiative that aims to help restore the forestlands inside the Upper Marikina River Basin Landscape (UMRBL) thereby enhancing the resilience of the ecosystem and the communities therein against the adverse impact of climate change. Specifically, the project aims to plant more than 6,000 native tree species per year covering a minimum of ten hectares of forest through the engagement and support from various stakeholders like private sectors and civic groups.
FPE3 is a social enterprise established by the Foundation for the Philippine Environment to help sustain conservations initiatives of its local partners in key biodiversity areas in the Philippines.

To achieve this, FPE3 is committed to mainstream and advocate for environmental education, empower communities and NGOs in building linkages and bridges for the management and sustainable development of their environment, and promote social enterprise as a strategy for organizational sustainability of not-for-profit partners.
