For the 2019 business year, Green Worldwide Shipping® partnered with Trees.org in a commitment to plant a tree for every shipment, every customer and every employee. With a business culture that believes good relationships are about more than just business, Green is excited to share that in the first two quarters of the year we have planted 26,206 trees in forest gardens throughout the globe.

We are grateful for the positive response Green has received from our customers, international partners, and employees in launching this initiative.  As a logistics provider, it is our responsibility to the global community and environment to incorporate sustainable programs into our everyday operations.  We believe in Making a Difference – that’s just The Green Way!

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.

26,206 trees = 411 metric tons
