“Twenty for One” Initiative Dedicated to Planting Trees Around the World
Boulder, Colorado, Oct. 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Surna Inc. (OTCQB: SRNA), operating as Surna Cultivation Technologies, today announced a partnership with One Tree Planted, a non-profit that aims to plant 27 million trees worldwide for landscape restoration in 2021. For every commercial project contract signed, Surna Cultivation Technologies will donate the funds to plant 20 trees.
“Working with One Tree Planted is a great fit for Surna,” said Jamie English, Surna’s Vice President of Marketing Communications. “Sustainability is at the core of our business model, and while we make a tremendous impact in the way we consider energy requirements, usage and sustainability in our engineering designs, we are thrilled to have another way to give back and help the environment.”
The objectives of the new partnership include:
- Supporting global reforestation efforts
- Empowering our customers with sustainable actions
- Raising awareness about the importance of ecosystem restoration
Planting trees is one of the best ways to combat the damaging effects of climate change. Trees help filter and clean the air we breathe and the water we drink. Trees provide habitats to over 80 percent of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. Trees also provide tremendous social impacts by providing jobs to over 1.6 billion people, empowering women in underdeveloped nations, and supporting communities devastated by environmental damage.
“We’re excited for the opportunity to work with Surna Cultivation Technologies on such an impactful project,” said One Tree Planted founder and Chief Environmental Evangelist, Matt Hill. “We admire the company’s commitment to a sustainable environment. It’s a prime example of how businesses can make a positive change for our planet.”
The partnership is designed to be a simple way for companies to get involved in global reforestation. The trees are planted by local partner organizations and community volunteers in areas where there has been deforestation. To learn more about this partnership, please visit surna.com/our-mission.
