UPDATE: Now that our Earth Day campaign has come to a close, we are very happy to announce that with the help of our customers we were able to donate an additional 10,000 trees, making our total donation to Trees For The Future 20,000 Trees. We are very thankful to have been able to aid Trees For The Future in their fundraising goals and hope to continue this partnership to help the Earth and the families and communities in need. Please visit our fundraising page to learn more about the initiative.
Earth Day is Friday, April 22, and at A Small Orange, we’re taking part by donating 10,000 trees, plus 10 trees for each new hosting plan purchased with our Promo Code: EARTHDAY and one tree for every “like” we receive on a Facebook post throughout our Earth Day promotion, starting 4/20 through 4/22. Donations are being made through our partnership with Trees for the Future.
Trees for the Future is improving the livelihoods of impoverished farmers by revitalizing degraded lands. Since 1989, with their experience in planting over 127 million trees all over the world, they have demonstrated the transformative power of trees by helping people break out of the poverty trap while also addressing the global environment. Today, their work in East and West Africa is helping to build a world where people can leave a legacy of opportunity through sustainable practices and productive lands for future generations. Their current goal is to plant 4 million trees for Earth Day 2016.
Our team at A Small Orange volunteered at the University of Texas at Austin’s Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in honor of Earth Day. For 34 years, the organization has worked to conserve, restore and create healthy landscapes. Activities are set to include weeding, watering, mulching, raking, and plant propagation. By volunteering at the gardens, we had the opportunity to learn about native Texas plants while supporting environmental protection.
A Small Orange’s Earth Day promotion will run from 4/20 through 4/22. You can build your website while doing your part to save the planet by making your purchase with our Promo Code: EARTHDAY.
