Businesses Should be Planting Trees - These 10 Do
This article on WeHeartWorld highlights 10 businesses that are doing just that. They range from big companies like Dell and IOGEAR to a surf shop and a shaving oil company. It's dirt cheap to pay for trees to be planted, yet it seems as if businesses are avoiding it and other charities for whatever reason.
Small businesses can participate and should be the cornerstone of the movement. Following the lead of these bigger companies, they have the opportunity to make a big difference with little effort. I could go into the many, many, many benefits of planting trees, but that would be a chapter of a book. Instead, take a look at some of the companies who are making a difference by offering Tree-Planting incentives to their customers.
- Connectivity: IOGEAR
With their “Road to a Million Trees” campaign in partnership with Trees for the Future, IOGEAR will plant a tree for every product sold on IOGEAR.com or through an IOGEAR GREEN initiative partner, with a goal of planting one million trees. There is no additional cost associated with this program - if you buy one of their products, assume that an oak or cedar somewhere in the world will have your name figuratively on it.
It just makes too much sense. When it comes down to it, many products are just about the same as their competitors. When there is an opportunity to make a choice based upon social responsibility, it helps to prove that companies who help are the ones we want to succeed.
