36,200 trees donated in 2019

Green Worldwide Shipping®, a leading provider of international supply chain logistics and global trade services, continues the pledge to plant a tree for every employee, customer, and shipment handled, celebrating their third quarter contribution and bringing the total 2019 donation to 36,200 trees.

WHY TREES?

Trees are a habitat for biodiversity and create much of the planet’s oxygen. They help combat climate change and play a large role in agroforestry and in helping farming families improve their land quality and productivity.

Trees help to offset carbon and create oxygen through photosynthesis. A single forest garden tree can isolate approximately 34.6 pounds of carbon (260 pounds of oxygen) per year.

“Green continues to be amazed by the positive reaction we have received from our customers and partner agents through Q3 2019. Sustainability isn’t just marketing jargon that we throw around lightly, rather it has become an integral part of the culture here.  Green believes in incorporating environmental responsibility and sustainability programs into our everyday operations; not because we have to – but because it’s the right thing to do. That’s the Green Way!”

THOMAS JORGENSEN, PRESIDENT & CEO, GREEN WORLDWIDE SHIPPING
