Help Green our Nation!

In addition to the restoration of forests and wildlife habitat, trees planted through the National Greening Program contribute to cleaner air, cleaner soil, and cleaner waterways. This is a hands-off initiative for organizations that wish to have a larger impact by planting $4 seedlings across 5 Canadian regions.

Consider some of the following environmental initiatives for your company or organization:

Employee Recognition

Recognition of employee or company milestones

Client Appreciation, Staff Appreciation

Per client or per product sale

Incentives

Per email acquisition or survey participation

Corporate Social Responsibility

Help offset office printing, paper use, mileage and/or energy consumption per percentage of monthly, quarterly or annual sales

Choose Among Five Canadian Regions

Atlantic & North

Environmental benefits: The first site is located within the UNESCO-designated Fundy Biosphere Reserve and situated within a critical wildlife connectivity corridor. The surrounding Acadian Forest is one of the most ecologically diverse forest types in Canada, as well as one of the most endangered. The forest restoration through the planting native tree species will improve the habitat and hydrology of the area. The second site is situated on an abandoned grass field in the middle of the city’s municipal water-capture system. The restoration will help to improve water filtration and eliminate toxic substances leaking into the water system.
