GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Sept. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- By activating consumers in its sustainability mission, Boxed Water celebrates a successful close of the third year of its #ReTree project. Boxed Water achieved record-level engagement and has committed to plant 612,567 trees in partnership with the National Forest Foundation (NFF).
Since 2015, Boxed Water has worked with the NFF to plant trees in National Forests through their 1% for the Planet membership. This past summer, trees committed from the #ReTree 2016 campaign were planted in the Sierra National Forest, Calif.; Stanislaus National Forest, Calif.; Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest, Utah. The NFF selects areas based on the greatest need due to factors like wildfires and other natural threats. This year the #ReTree project brings Boxed Water over halfway to its commitment to plant one million trees by 2020. Project details are available at boxedwaterisbetter.com.
