Treecup has successfully funded 20,000 trees since our 2017 launch. We've been featured in press publications including the Pittsburgh City Paper, Pittsburgh Post Gazette, NEXT Pittsburgh, The Butler Eagle, The Collegian, Future Founders, Commonbond, Startnow Pittsburgh, Table Magazine, Pieshell, and Haiti Friends.
Founded by mother and son with grandma's Peruvian Chai tea recipe, we at Treecup are committed to mobilizing a worldwide reforestation effort.
