This year, Craters & Freighters will celebrate 28 years in business as the Nation’s leading specialty crating and shipping company. To help celebrate Earth Day, the company continues their commitment to replenishing natural materials used, by partnering with Trees for the Future, Earth Day Network, and Arbor Day Foundation. Since June of 2015, Craters & Freighters has supported the planting of a tree for every crate built.

“Planting trees creates hope for future generations. Our goal is to give back to communities and to do our part to help replenish national forestry, driving sustainability,” stated Diane Gibson, Founder, and CEO of Craters & Freighters. “The simple act of planting trees will help to sustain communities and the environment in countless ways.”

Trees for the Future’s goal is to help hundreds of millions of families escape extreme poverty by transforming their lands into Forest Gardens. The Forest Garden Program is a simple, replicable and scalable approach with proven success. By planting specific types of fast-growing trees, fruit trees, hardwoods and food crops in a systematic manner over a four-year period, families can positively change their lives forever. Forest Gardens consist of thousands of trees that provide families with sustainable food sources, livestock feed, products to sell, fuel-wood and a 400% increase in their annual income in four years.

The packaging and transportation industry, by its nature, is an eco-offender. Craters & Freighters believes there is an opportunity for eco-awareness and improvement. “We are thrilled knowing our Plant a Tree campaign can make an impact for environmental restoration and will contribute to these sustainability efforts, restoring dying farmland,” stated Matthew Schmitz, COO of Craters & Freighters.
