Worktree products are made in Acacia auriculiformis, a tree brought from Australia by Auroville's early settlers. It was planted excessively at the beginning of Auroville in order to establish basic ground coverage, as Auroville was previously a barren plateau. Being a nitrogen-fixer it also improved the soil fertility. This tree has helped restore a barren plateau to a fertile one, and has helped trees native to Southern India make a come-back. In Auroville it is known as the "Work Tree".
Worktree is ecologically responsible and sources Acacia, an excellent timber tree, from well-managed, renewable local forests in Auroville; At Worktree we are committed to using this timber, with the belief that it is a small, important contribution towards saving the rain-forests of our planet. we do not use imported wood. Because our goal is to achieve a perfect eco-footprint, Worktree employs local artisans and uses local materials for almost all of its products.
