WHY WE DID IT
Each day, our Blade & Timber facilities use dozens of Douglas Fir boards as axe throwing targets. Rather than dump the splintered wood in a landfill, we are changing the game with a sustainable, zero-waste approach. We’re turning targets torn up by our axe throwing fun into beautiful mulch for your landscaping needs. Every $1 of Blade & Timber’s mulch proceeds will be donated to planting one tree. Soon, Blade & Timber will be planting far more trees than used in our facilities.
HOW WE DID IT
On Earth Day 2018, we launched our Axe of Love sustainability initiative to rally the community around slinging axes and planting trees. More than 100 volunteers showed up to bag mulch made from our splintered wooden targets and then throw axes for free. In just 1.5 hours, volunteers filled 400 bags of mulch, for sale at Blade & Timber. We can’t thank the community enough for the overwhelming support! We have BIG plans to host Axe of Love volunteer events at all Blade & Timber locations soon.
