This startup plants 10 trees for every item it sells — here's what its clothing is like in real life, beyond the Instagram hype

  • TenTree is a Canadian apparel company that plants 10 trees for every product sold.
  • Although its sustainable, wear-anywhere, trail-to-town apparel is very well made, it's still a mission-first company.
  • Since its inception, TenTree has planted more than 25 million trees worldwide, built up local communities on two continents through tree-planting, and clinched the third most-liked photo on Instagram.
  • We tried a few of the company's best-selling pieces. Find our thoughts below, or shop TenTree's apparel at Backcountry .
For some entrepreneurs, the idea that eventually became the Next Big Thing first germinated as an unstructured desire to do good. For Bombas , that was supplying the most-asked-for item — socks — to homeless shelters. For a couple of Canadian tree planters looking to reforest the Earth, that meant the clothing brand TenTree.  Founded in 2012 by Stephen and Derrick Emsley, TenTree makes lifestyle apparel that blurs the line between strictly indoor and outdoor gear. Die-hard hikers and city-dwellers can wear TenTree clothes interchangeably. The company also inherently reflects the sustainable, ethical mindset of its shoppers and founders: For every purchase made, the company plants 10 new trees. Since its inception, TenTree has planted 25 million new trees on earth. By 2030, the company's goal is 1 billion.  The brand's clothes, while made from about 95% sustainable materials, mostly consist of comfy, unassuming sweatshirts, shirts, leggings, and other basic apparel sold at a reasonable price (reviews below). TenTree also removed virgin plastic from its offerings, converted all its cotton to organic, shifted all leather to cork, and swapped and rayon fibers for tencel to be more eco-friendly. While all these efforts make for great branding, TenTree shoppers would probably be just as likely to buy a $70 Juniper hoodie because it looks cool and goes with pretty much anything. 14882149_1116562591730676_2640286339731458_o But beyond making comfortable, wear-anywhere clothes, TenTree has fostered a large community online built on an easygoing, frictionless love of nature.

Subscription service Knifey sharpens your kitchen knives so you don't have to — here's how it works

  • Sharpening your dull knives: You know you need to do it and that it'll make a big difference when you're prepping ingredients to cook, but you, like many other home cooks, keep putting it off. 
  • Knifey is a knife sharpening and exchange subscription service that takes care of this confusing, time-consuming, or expensive household chore for you. 
  • From $5.99 to $18.99 a month, you can enjoy the durability and sharpness of professional-grade knives without dealing with the upkeep. 
A dull knife is the bane of every home cook's existence. Less-than-sharp knives cause a lot of frustration, yet if you looked in your drawer right now, you'd probably find more than a couple knives in desperate need of sharpening.  When Cully Wiginton, the founder of a new knife sharpening and exchange subscription service called Knifey , dug into why people were holding onto their underperforming kitchen tools, he learned that most home sharpening solutions didn't stack up to the skills of a sharpening expert, and it's inconvenient to drop off knives with said specialist. Plus — and I suspect this is the case for many home cooks — it's easy to keep putting off the chore of sharpening your knives in favor of the other errands on your long list of to-dos.  Sharpening a knife isn't necessarily hard, but taking the time to do it and doing a quality job is. Wiginton says, "I wanted to find a way to make it incredibly easy to always have a sharp set of knives, and to have a professional-level set of knives without having to pay hundreds of dollars upfront. The Knifey service solves both of these problems."  Read more: The best knife sets you can buy knifey knife sharpening 8 With Knifey, you'll always have the sharpest knives at your disposal. The service sends a fresh set of knives at a frequency you choose, then you send back your old ones in the same box. This design means you're not left knife-less as you wait for your knives to be sharpened, and with monthly payments, you don't have to pay hundreds of dollars upfront for a knife set. It's also commitment-free — you can cancel your subscription at any time.  Read more: 6 direct-to-consumer kitchen startups that are changing the way we shop for cookware and knives Not only does Knifey improve your knife quality, and relatedly, your cooking skills, it also helps underprivileged students gain a kitchen education. In partnership with an organization that helps students obtain jobs in the culinary arts, it provides knife sets to the top graduating students in each class.  Read on to learn more about how Knifey works and what to expect from this innovative service. You can visit its website to get started and receive your first set of knives. First, you have a couple decisions to make. Which knife set you want, and how often do you want your knives to be sharpened? There are three different knife sets to choose from and they contain only the knives you'd use regularly in the kitchen:

    Mark Zuckerberg dog beast

    With company cultures that celebrate —and even encourage —employees bringing their dogs to work, it's no wonder that many of tech's biggest players are also parents to the cutest creatures known to man.  From Google to Facebook, dogs have taken over the hearts and Instagrams of the industry's most powerful leaders. Sure these people are setting the agenda for global business and politics, but even billionaires need a little TLC (tender loving cuddles).  And did we mention these dogs are darn cute?

    • If you're concerned about online privacy, there are steps you can take to ensure that your Facebook activity and information are kept as private as possible.
    • You can make your Facebook profile private by adjusting your privacy settings to "Only me," on a desktop computer or the Facebook mobile app. 
    • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories .
    Facebook is a one-stop shop when it comes to networking online. Not only can we connect with colleagues, classmates, friends, and family, we can also play games, cross-post to Instagram, join community groups with people who share similar interests, and more. But how much of what you do on Facebook are you handling with appropriate discretion? You may not be doing anything embarrassing or illegal, but not everyone wants their every move tracked online. While you can't control the advertisers and other outside companies Facebook choses to sell your information to , there are ways to ensure that your activity and profile information on Facebook is limited when it comes to the general public and even those on your friends list. It only takes a few minutes to secure your account and may be worthwhile to do. Here's what you need to know. How to make your Facebook private on desktop 1. Go to Facebook.com and log into your account using the email address and password associated with your account. 2. Once on your news feed, which acts as your home screen, navigate to the arrow in the upper right-hand corner of the screen, and click on it to reveal a drop down menu of options. 3. Scroll down until you locate the "Settings" tab and click. 4. On the left-hand side of your screen, you'll see a long list of menu options. Locate "Privacy," which should appear as the fourth item down from the top, and click on it to launch your privacy settings on the right-hand side of the screen. Facebook 1 5. Note that Facebook allows you to change your privacy settings for individual website features. This means you can adjust the level of privacy for specific elements of the site such as how you're found and contacted on the site, who can see your posts, and even retroactively limit the audience of your past posts. 6. To change a particular privacy element, click the "Edit" option to the far right of each section. This will expand the section and allow you to choose who, if anyone, sees the relevant information. To keep anyone from seeing it, click on "Only me" under "Who should see this?" Facebook 2 7. You can make your Facebook even more private by changing who can tag you in posts, who can post on your Timeline, and who can share the posts you make to their own profiles.

    The best cake decorating tools you can buy


    • With the right tools, you can use the same cake decorating techniques that the professionals use, right in your home kitchen.
    • The Emopeak 110 Piece Cake Decorating Supplies Kit includes all of the essentials that amateur cakemakers need to get started, all at an affordable price.
    Cake decorating is all the rage at the moment, with shows like "Extreme Cakes," "Cake Boss," and "Ace of Cakes" and demonstrating the incredible looks that both pro and amateur bakers manage to pull off (except for contestants on "Nailed It"). Now, there's pressure to pull off stunning wedding cakes, birthday cakes, anniversary cakes, and cakes for just about any other occasion. The use of fondant, spray-on food coloring, stencils, and more allows decorators to include great amounts of detail in their designs, and ultimately your imagination truly is the limit when it comes to decorating cakes. Memorable birthday cakes have always been a part of my childhood. My mom baked all of the cakes for my brother's and my birthdays, and though it's been more than 20 years since she made some of those cakes, I still remember them well. My mother piped and frosted some amazing cakes, and while I inherited her love of baking, I didn't inherit her decorating talents. Luckily, I've discovered a variety of tools that can help. While I'll never be the talented freehand piper that my mom is, with some of these tools, I can do a halfway decent job decorating a cake. These tools aren't top-of-the-line and they're not intended for professional bakers. They do allow home bakers to use some of the same techniques that the professionals use, expanding their options in how they approach each cake.   If you enjoy baking for friends and family and are looking to improve your cake decorating techniques and skills and even show off a little bit, these tools can help.

    Processed foods make us fatter and are linked to a higher risk of cancer. Here’s what science suggests we should eat instead.


    quesadilla processed food

    Here's an experiment: Sit alone in a hospital room for two weeks and eat nothing but ultra-processed foods like hot dogs, muffins, canned ravioli, and chicken salad. You probably wouldn't love the results.  But that's exactly what 20 men and women did in a recent, rigorously controlled study from the National Institutes of Health . Those participants ended up gaining an average of 2 pounds in those two weeks on this ultra-processed diet. They also consumed about 500 additional calories every day, compared to a different two-week period in which the same people followed an unprocessed meal plan. The scientists behind the study — which was published Thursday — found that this discrepancy arose because patients who were fed processed meals tended to overeat, even though researchers controlled for how much salt, fat, sugar, protein, fiber, and carbohydrates each meal contained (regardless of whether it consisted of processed versus unprocessed items).  "This is the first time that we can actually say that there's a causal relationship between something that's independent of the nutrients ... that is driving these differences in calorie intake and weight gain," lead researcher Kevin Hall told Business Insider . His team isn't yet sure why processed food makes us hungrier, but they have a few educated hypotheses. For one, they think the difference in calorie consumption might have something to do with the ways that fresh foods trigger hormones that regulate our appetite (ghrelin), and suppress hunger (PYY). Additionally, people tend to eat unprocessed foods more slowly, which gives our body more time to register that we're full before we overeat.  Beyond its link to overeating, a diet heavy in processed food is also linked with all kinds of other health problems, according to previous research: People who consume it regularly are more likely to get cancer and die quicker than others . Given that stark comparison, here's how to determine what to seek out and what to avoid. The difference between processed and unprocessed food processed dinner Researchers classify "ultra-processed" foods as items that are generally factory-made and come laden with additives and preservatives like sweeteners and thickeners. Generally, these things are packaged in plastic or cans. You're likely to see "high fructose c Číst dále >>>

    We tried the leggings every supermodel on our Instagram feeds seems to be wearing — here's what we thought

    • Alo Yoga exercise gear has gained respect among yogis and celebrities since its 2007 founding.
    • The company makes flattering, trend-focused performance gear that can be worn from "studio to street."
    • To see how it stacks up in person, three reporters tested the popular Airlift leggings. Find our personal reviews below.
    • Still looking? Read about the best women's workout tights you can buy .
    If you've ever tapped on an Instagram post of a supermodel working out, aimlessly wondering where those cute leggings are from, I'd be willing to bet that, more often than not, said model will be sporting Alo Yoga, a relatively young LA brand with an outsized following. Since its founding in 2007, the company has become a mainstay in both diehard yogi camps and the earth's small but hyper-visible population of models and artists. Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Taylor Swift, Chrissy Teigen, Jenna Dewan, Olivia Culpo, Hailey Beiber... the list of high-profile patrons goes on. So, what gives? To see for ourselves, we tested a few pairs of Alo Yoga Airlift leggings in our own (very normal) lives. The verdict: flattering, silky, and buttery soft. Despite the fact that they're trend- and fashion-focused, that shouldn't translate to impracticality; these leggings manage to look good and perform during exercise.  A few things to note if you're looking to buy: some reviews note sweat showing through lighter colors; the capris run slightly longer than average; and the site sells out quickly. So, if you find something you love, it may be better not to wait. The company also has a 30-day return policy for unworn gear in case the fit isn't perfect in person. And, lastly, if you'd like to get around the crowds and sellouts, check Nordstrom .  Here's what three reporters thought after testing the Airlift leggings:High-Waist Airlift Legging High-Waist Airlift Legging, $118, available at Alo , Backcountry , and Carbon38 Looking at these leggings, you'd think they're just like any other pair, but the difference is clear once you feel them. They're buttery smooth and feel great on your legs, and they stretch very well. You can and should take advantage of the variety of color options because they're a nice change from traditional black. Although I'm of average height (5-foot-6), my legs are on the shorter side, so I found with this legging length that some fabric did bunch up — I had to choose between my ankle or knee areas.

    I interviewed 100 of the world’s wealthiest people and learned 4 tricks that explain how the super-rich get to the top — and stay there


    Dr. Greg Reid

    • Dr. Greg Reid interviewed 100 of the world's richest people — from entertainment pioneers to real estate tycoons — to find out how they built their wealth and held onto it.
    • He and co-author Gary M. Krebs published the findings in a book, " Wealth Made Easy ," which contains proven, real-world strategies for hanging onto money.
    • For example, buy land in an area eight miles from a fast-growing town, rent it out to local farmers to cover the costs, and then sell it to a large retail developer for much more than you paid.
    • Another strategy: Combine unrelated business ideas for something brand new that meets the needs of a wide range of people.
    • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.
    Ever wonder how you can discover the insider secrets — or wealth hacks — that millionaires and billionaires used to build their lives of sustained prosperity? If you don't have access to super wealthy people, don't sweat it. Below are four simple wealth hacks to get you started.  SEE ALSO:  The 7 most crucial money lessons to learn before age 30, according to a Harvard grad who was raised in poverty and now runs a finance site 1. Buy dirt Canadian land mogul Brian Sidorsky shares a concept so powerful it challenges your imagination. When asked how he amassed a fortune in raw, undeveloped land, he sat back in his chair and exclaimed, "Time plus dirt is wealth." Sidorsky then clarified his concept. "Find a town anywhere in North America that is growing 20 to 25 percent a year. Pinpoint their 'Main Street' and draw a line out eight miles from that location and buy that land. That is the 'dirt.' Rent the soil to local farmers who will pay the rent that covers the costs, so it's free. As the town continues to expand, eventually it ends up on your property where you own the largest lot and, since you are already near Main Street, you can then sell that land to a big-box store for one hundred times what you paid for it."   2. Combine unrelated business ideas Gene Landrum did something seemingly impossible when he founded Chuck E. Cheese's. He created an entirely new business model by combining several different ideas into one chain: food, family, and amusement park-type entertainment. Food: Kids love pizza. Amusement park-type entertainment: Kids are fixated on video games, whack-a-mole, and air hockey. Combine pizza and amusement park entertainment, and you have occupied kids and happy parents. Why parents? Because they can sit at the table, take a breather, and eat while their kids are busy playing in the gaming area. The hybrid pizza chain/entertainment center concept was revolutionary, and it reversed old thinking that had kept dining and kids' entertainment separate. What businesses can you combine to create something entirely new? 3. Take advantage of obsolescence Číst dále >>>

    AmEx Platinum vs AmEx Gold: Which rewards credit card is better for you


    Business Insider may receive a commission from The Points Guy Affiliate Network if you apply for a credit card, but our reporting and recommendations are always independent and objective. AmEX Platinum vs. AmEx Gold 4x3

    • Both the Platinum Card® from American Express and the American Express® Gold Card offer valuable rewards on purchases, large welcome bonuses, and useful benefits.
    • Both cards also have a few annual statement credits that can offset their annual fees.
    • Given the similarities, we've laid out the differences to help you pick the best card for you.
    Late last year, American Express refreshed and relaunched its Gold Card , giving it new benefits and rewards in an effort to make it a stronger competitor in an increasingly crowded credit-card market. That relaunch followed an early-2017 refresh of the AmEx Platinum Card , which also brought improvements and new benefits to the card. Both cards have tangible benefits like annual statement credits that make up for the annual fee, but there are some pretty significant differences between them. Read on to learn more about the two cards and to see which is better for you. Click here to learn more about the American Express Platinum Card from Business Insider's partner: The Points Guy.

SEE ALSO:  The best credit card rewards, bonuses, and benefits of 2019 DON'T MISS:  The best American Express cards You can earn rewards quickly with both cards thanks to bonus categories. The Platinum Card The AmEx Platinum Card earns a massive 5x points per dollar spent on airfare, as long as you book directly with the airline or through AmEx Travel, and on prepaid hotel stays booked through AmEx Travel. It earns 1x point per dollar on everything else. Travel website (and Business Insider e-commerce partner) The Points Guy subjectively values AmEx Membership Rewards points at 2¢ each, so that means a whopping 10% of value back on the bonus categories. While that isn't the most rewarding card of all-time, 5x points is a fantastic earning rate, and if you book your own travel frequently, the points will add up quickly. The Gold Card The  AmEx Gold Card  offers 4x points per dollar spent at US restaurants, 4x points back at US supermarkets (on up to $25,000 per year — 1x point per dollar for anything beyond that), and 3x points per dollar on flights booked directly with the airline or with AmEx travel.
