PETACH TIKVA, Israel, Feb. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Stockton STK specializes in the development and marketing of botanical based biopesticides, has created 'Planting 4 Life', an employee-led organization at Stockton which volunteers a working day to help rehabilitate our forest, clean out unnecessary debris or plant new trees in the areas which were devastated by massive wildfires.
Following the aftermath of 2016, Israel forest suffered massive wildfires destroying 130,000 dunams (32,124 acres) across Israel caused by extremely dry and windy weather conditions and human negligence: campfires left unattended, the burning of debris, tossing a cigarette butt out of their car and intentional acts of arson.
Stockton's staff in Israel decided that they wanted to make a difference. Something had to be done in order to give back some TLC (tender loving care) to our land and the forest. Organized under the auspices and in full cooperation with Israel's afforestation and reservoir-building a national organization known as Keren Kayemuth LeIsrael (the Jewish National Fund - JNF), Stockton sets out to the northern part of Israel in an area which was severely devastated by these massive wildfires to restore and clean out unnecessary debris.
Guy Elitzur, CEO of Stockton commented on the 'Planting 4 Life' project, stating, "I am proud of Stockton, its employees and friends who humbly volunteered their time to make a difference in helping to clean and restore the land and the beauty of our forest in the wake of the recent wildfires. 'Planting 4 Life' is a great way to reverse the destruction caused by these fires, and help rehabilitate our forest to life again."
