Yesterday we helped Odwalla kick off its annual Plant a Tree program. Now in its fourth year, the program allows people across the country to donate a tree, free of charge, to their local state parks.
In a year being hailed as the “International Year of Forests” by the United Nations, Odwalla is celebrating by allowing consumers to become foresters. Odwalla will be donating $100,000 worth of trees this year — but they tend to go quickly so we wanted to encourage Peepshow readers to visit www.odwalla.com/plantatree to grab a tree for their state.
This year, for anyone who may be undecided about where to plant their tree, several of the park representatives created videos to encourage votes for their state. You can check them out by clicking on the individual states on the map.
The species of trees donated will vary by region and will be planted in fall 2011 and early 2012. Since its inception in 2008, the Odwalla Plant a Tree program has donated $350,000 worth of trees.
Couldn’t your state use a new tree? Go cast your vote today!
