One Theory’s #OneTribe #OneVibe Scholarship Award

One Theory for People & Planet™ is offering two (2) $1,000 scholarship awards to U.S. students who will be attending college in Fall 2021! To enter, follow us on Instagram and respond to the following prompt:

One Theory values people and the planet, and we strive to make our impact on the world meaningful where it counts. For us, it’s about formulating skincare products with thoughtful, human-friendly ingredients and giving back what we’ve taken from our planet by planting five trees for every order. That’s what is beautiful to us! We truly believe that each day is a new opportunity to do something great and just one person, one product and one order can make all the difference in the world.

Tell us about what’s beautiful to you! We’re looking for entries that share just ONE issue that you believe is affecting people and/or the planet the most today, and share ONE cool thing that you are doing to make the world better for tomorrow.

To truly share the love, we will also plant 1 tree for each scholarship entry! So, no matter who wins—earth wins!

Deadline for all submissions is June 4, 2021.
