Waltham, MA (PRWEB) April 4, 2010
PlanetShoes.com is partnering with CarbonFund.org for their Earth Day Million Tree Challenge. Customers will be able to add “1 Tree for $1” for the entire month of April in honor of Earth Month and the 40th anniversary of Earth Day.
“We have partnered with CarbonFund.org on our Carbon Free Plus Shipping for some time now. Every customer who purchases something from our website has the opportunity to pay to offset the carbon footprint of their shipment. We have raised thousands of dollars towards carbon offsets and the Million Tree Challenge is a perfect way for us to celebrate Earth Month and encourage our customers to think about their carbon footprint and the environment,” said Philippe Meynard, President of Planet, Inc.
During the month of April, “1 Tree for $1” will be available site wide, with the click of a button. Additionally, PlanetShoes.com has also congregated a group of their most successful brands that have agreed to match donations made by customers purchasing their products who also purchase “1 Tree for $1”.
Brands participating in the PlanetShoes.com matching program include Naya Shoes, Earth Footwear, Patagonia, Ocean Minded, OTBT, Chaco, Kavu Bags, Simple Shoes, Acorn, El Naturalista, Greenbees, Groundhog, Dansko, Timbuk2 and Teva.
“We love working with our brands in this way – being able to partner up and make a promotion like this more powerful is very gratifying. We hope to fulfill the matching goals of each of our Million Tree Challenge partner brands so that we can maximize our donation to CarbonFund.org at the end of the month!”
