6. WeWood Wooded Watches
WeWood creates all-natural, eco-friendly wooden watches that give back to the environment, rather than just taking. For every watch purchased, WeWood plants a tree to help prevent deforestation. In other words, they plant more trees than they cut down in an effort to better the environment. WeWood has planted over 600,000 trees since it first started in 2010. My personal favorite watch is this one, because of the sleek look to the clock face. Learn more here.
