As a company, Hereafter looks at the impact on the environment from the moment a new product or design is considered through development, manufacturing, sales, and delivery. Every gift is created to be kept and remembered, made in small batches using responsibly sourced materials, using wood that comes from Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) certified forests in the US. They also donate samples and seconds to local community organizations and recycle scraps as much as possible.
In 2019, Hereafter joined the nonprofit One Tree Planted, joining their Million Tree Challenge. An initiative to plant one million trees in California to help the state recover from its worst fire season in its history. Hereafter is facilitating the planting of 2,000 trees — that’s 100 trees for every tree used since Hereafter started in 2012. Going forward, they will continue to plant 100 trees for every tree used to do their part in taking care of natural resources and being responsible citizens of the planet.
