Happy Earth Day! In honor of this special day, we're excited to share with you the story of one particular business that is teaming up with an amazing environmental nonprofit organization to impact the air we breathe in a big way.
StorQuest Self Storage is a nationally recognized brand, which seeks to make self-storage easy so that customers can free up space for adventure in their lives and make room for awesome.
One Tree Planted is a nonprofit that engages communities to combat deforestation by planting trees around the world. One Tree Planted supports forests in North America, Latin America, Asia, and Africa. You can explore those forests here.
These two socially conscious organizations are uniting to positively impact our planet for generations to come.
Let's #RootForTheFuture. Together.
StorQuest has partnered with One Tree Planted to benefit North American forests in the communities where its employees live and work. Some of these forests have been hit in recent years with wildfires and deforestation.
Today they are teaming up to launch a new initiative: #RootForTheFuture. Together. Starting today, for every storage unit rented, StorQuest will plant one tree to help reforest an at-risk growth community. The goal is to plant 60,000 trees this year in 12 areas in need of reforestation around the United States.
Now, when you choose StorQuest, you're not only making room in life for awesome adventures, you're reforesting your own backyard!
This incredible campaign is also going to give StorQuest employees the opportunity to actively volunteer in their local community forests and participate in tree-planting activities.
To learn more about this campaign and to see how many trees have been planted to-date across the 12 communities (including an interactive map!), visit their campaign site which updates regularly with new information and data about their tree-planting programs.
