Bethesda, MD and Long Island City, NY, March 1, 2012 – The Carbonfund.org Foundation is proud to announce Forever Cheese as the launch partner for our Earth Day 2012 Promotion. With Carbonfund.org’s plant two-get one free tree planting promotion, 7,500 trees have already been planted.
Earth Day 2012 can be one of the most successful yet with early planning from organizations like Carbonfund.org and partners like Forever Cheese. Carbonfund.org is pleased to offer a 2012 Earth Day promotion that allows businesses to get one free tree planted for every two trees that they purchase. This means that for $2, three trees get planted at locations around the world. Forever Cheese immediately stepped up and set the bar by planting 7,500 trees globally. With the help of Forever Cheese and other partners, Carbonfund.org is confident that we can reach our goal to plant a million trees by the end of the year. In 2011, we planted over 325,000 trees. Earth Day 2012 provides a perfect celebration for businesses like Forever Cheese to be a part of this collaborative, global effort, and help us reach a million planted trees.
Deforestation is responsible for about 20% of global warming. And, reforestation has to be part of the solution in order to turn the tide of climate change. Tree planting projects sequester CO2 from the atmosphere, prevent erosion, protect biodiversity, and provide renewable resources for local communities. Planting trees provides flood control by minimizing runoff and the loss of top soil, provides habitat and nutrition for wildlife and nurseries for local fish populations, and offers alternative economic livelihoods for local communities in the form of managing tree nurseries and planting, assisting with regulation of the water and nutrient cycle. This promotion is a win-win for both planet and people.
