9to5 Seating is partnering with One Tree Planted, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that focuses on reforestation around the globe by planting one tree for every dollar donated. With a long-time dedication to sustainability, 9to5 Seating will focus its donation and efforts on reforestation in California, where the company’s headquarters is located and where deadly wildfires have impacted numerous communities in recent years.
One Tree Planted teams with individuals and organizations in more than 43 countries including The Jane Goodall Institute, to plant trees and restore nature and biodiversity. The trees are planted by local partner organizations and community volunteers in areas where there has been deforestation. They also raise awareness about the importance of trees and motivate younger generations to do something positive for the environment. The organization has doubled the number of trees it has planted since 2014 and enables its partners to choose a region of focus for its efforts.
“We’ve seen the devastating impact of forest fires too often in our home state of California, which is why it was so important to us to partner with One Tree Planted,” said Dara Mir, President and CEO of 9to5 Seating. “We’re committed to sustainability at every opportunity, and teaming with this impressive organization will enable us to make an even greater impact.”
9to5 Seating is committed to sustainable and environmentally responsible business practices.
