Earth Day: Buy One, Get One…Tree!

This Earth Day, buy one get one… tree!

The Student Conservation Association (SCA) and AEO are partnering this Earth Day to make an even bigger impact on our planet’s well-being. Beginning April 15, AEO will donate a tree with help from SCA, for every pair of AEO Denim X and Flex Shorts purchased (up to 100,000 trees). This initiative will continue until Earth Day on April 22.

Through the simple act of purchasing a pair of shorts, you will be doing your part to help our planet. Wondering what 100K trees can do to help the Earth? We’ve got that covered. Read on to learn about the many environmental benefits trees provide to our planet & the impact 100,000 new trees can have:

100KTREES

More Fun Facts:

  • 100K trees are enough to create a 1.3 square mile of dense forest or one the size of Central Park in NYC!
  • A large tree can give off as much as 100 gallons of water into the air per day. This has a cooling effect roughly equivalent to 10 single-room-sized air conditioning units operating 20 hours per day.
  • The annual energy cost reduction of a tree is $50.
  • Cities are constantly in need of new trees to plant. The average tree in an urban area has a life expectancy of eight years.
  • The bark of one single tree can provide a home for hundreds of living things, including close to 300 species of insects and 350 varieties of lichens. These plants and bugs then provide food for numerous birds and small mammals.
  • Planting trees remains one of the cheapest, most effective means of drawing excess CO2 from the atmosphere.

This Earth Day, do your part to make our planet a greener place! It’s as simple as buying yourself an awesome new pair of AEO Shorts. If you’re looking to take it one step further, click here to learn about upcoming SCA events in your area and how you can participate.

How To: Pairing Men’s Denim With The Right Shoe

Have you ever put on a great-fitting pair of jeans only to be left wondering what shoes to wear with them? We’re here to help. With tons of fits and washes in our Men’s Denim collection, there’s a style for everyone from the trend-right skinny jean to the classic bootcut. Add shoes to the equation (sandals, boots, sneakers & more), and things can get a little dicey. Keep scrolling down to see how we’re pairing men’s denim with the right shoe.

Skinny Jean x Low Boots
The skinny leg opening of our Men’s Skinny Jean pairs perfectly with a low boot. Skinny jeans are great for showing off a cool shoe thanks to their ability to sit on top of the ankle rather than hang over the shoe. We paired these destructed Core Flex Skinny Jeans with a Chukka boot from Eastland, which sit right above the ankle.

Slim Jean x Sneakers
Thanks to the slim, tapered fit of our Slim Core Flex Jean, your sneakers can do all the talking here. Paired with a hi- or low-top sneaker, the slim jean sits right on the top of your shoe and won’t bunch up. We think a slim jean looks laid-back pegged (rolled) up once or twice, so if that’s more your style, this is the fit for you.

Original Straight Jean x Sandals
The original straight jean has a wider leg opening than a slim or skinny, so it will fall past your ankles and fit straight thru the leg. It’s the perfect match for a pair of sandals or flip flops. We paired the Original Straight Active Flex Jean with a pair of Birkenstocks.

Original Boot Jean x Boots
Our Original Boot Jean fits straight through the thigh and features a bottom cut made for boots, by name! A sturdier boot, like a pair of leather or suede Eastlands, are the best match for these jeans, which will hug the outsole of the boot.
