Grove Collaborative commits to plant 100,000 trees in our nation's forests
Lincoln, Neb. August 1, 2018 -- The Arbor Day Foundation announced today a new partnership with Grove Collaborative -- an auto-shipment service offering natural household products -- to plant 100,000 trees in forests of high need. Grove Collaborative has pledged to donate 1 percent of sales from Grove Collaborative's Seedling branded paper products toward the Foundation's reforestation efforts on an ongoing basis.
Through the partnership, trees will be planted on Klamath National Forest in California, Mississippi River Valley, Monongahela National Forest in West Virginia, Vinton and Harrison County Mined Land in Ohio and Ecofina Creek State Forest in Florida. These plantings will help provide cleaner air and water along with helping to restore natural habitat for wildlife.
"We are thrilled to partner with Grove Collaborative to plant trees in forests across the country," said Dan Lambe, president, Arbor Day Foundation. "Our forests are part of the long and rich history of the people and land of this country. Thanks to Grove Collaborative's support, we can begin to regenerate life back to these forests."
Record wildfires, pests and disease and other natural disasters have destroyed millions of trees in forests across the country. The impact of the designated planting sites will restore critical watersheds, reinstate habitat for threatened and at-risk wildlife species and replant trees in devastated forests where natural regeneration will not occur.
"Grove is so excited that the launch of our Seedling tree-free paper products will drive reforestation efforts across the US," said Jon Silverman, General Manager. "Our partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation makes this launch a truly special experience for the entire Grove community. Through the help of Arbor Day, we are not only selling paper products that do not use any trees, but we can offer the first 'tree-positive' paper in the World."
