Earth Day is quickly approaching and to celebrate the 40th Anniversary we’re partnering with Sustainable Harvest to save 10,000 trees. To save a tree all you have to do is become a fan of the BookRenter Facebook page. We’ll even let you name the tree (ours is Willow) and we’ll send you a link to download a certificate of honor and give you a online badge for some bragging rights!
Why Save a Tree?
- Trees are key to our ecosystem and create homes for our furry and winged friends!
- Forty trees remove 80 pounds of air pollutants annually
- An average size tree produces enough oxygen in one year to keep a family of four breathing
- A 70-year old tree stores over three tons of carbon
Plus…we’re also having a Hug a Tree contest. Simply give a tree (any tree) a big old bear hug, take a picture and submit it. You’ll be entered to win a do-it-yourself eco-trip ($600 in REI store credit, a 1-year National Parks pass plus other eco-goodies).
So become a fan, get your camera out and join in on the fun. The first 50 people who enter the Hug A Tree photo contest also get a free BookRenter.com Earth Day 2010 t-shirt.
P.S. In addition to saving, naming and hugging a tree, a few of us in the BookRenter corporate office pledge to use reusable bags when we shop for all things personal life. It is something that we do on occasion, but we want to make it happen every time we shop. At the grocery store, at the mall, at the farmer’s market, etc. Just taking the extra time to remember to bring it and use it. Do you have a personal pledge this Earth Day? If so, let us know, we would love to hear about it.
