A good idea is easy to spread, and a great deal really catches on at this holiday gift-giving time of year.

Carbonfund.org’s tree-planting campaigns have always attracted individual and business donors to support these affordable and high-impact environmental initiatives, and the Plant-a-Tree Dine-for-Free campaign adds the incredible value of two, three, even five times the donation value in Restaurant.com dining rewards.    

Carbonfund.org business partner ITA Group, a leader in events, incentives and recognition programs, recognized the appeal of this program and is now offering the Plant-a-Tree Dine-for-Free program in its points-based rewards catalog. Top performers of ITA Group clients can redeem points to plant trees through Carbonfund.org’s program and receive the Restaurant.com dining rewards.

“The dining rewards component really adds to the trophy value of Carbonfund.org’s tree-planting program,” said Larisa Mendenhall, Director of Individual Awards. “We’re pleased to offer our program participants this unique opportunity.”

In its 50th year creating and managing events, incentives and recognition programs, ITA Group helps clients engage, retain and reward their workforce.  ITA Group’s programs help to keep employees “checked in” and believing in what they’re doing every day. Alignment of people and mission is crucial in moving companies forward.  It’s also critical to furthering important sustainability initiatives and helping to restore and preserve our environment.  ITA Group makes it possible for their clients to do both by offering the Plant-a-Tree Dine-for-Free rewards program.

What are you doing to incent, reward and thank your employees, neighbors, friends, teachers, community and family this year?  Check out the Plant-a-Tree Dine-for-Free program for a high-value high-impact option!

This week, Carbonfund.org launched an ambitious year-end/holiday giving program that features a huge tree-planting initiative rewarded with Restaurant.com dining benefits.  Many of our business partners and supporters have enthusiastically embraced this “environmental no-brainer” as a fantastic gift-giving option that appeals to just about everyone.

The campaign is simple:

Go to https://www.carbonfund.org/plant-trees-dine-free and choose to:

*             Plant 50 Trees for $50 - Receive a $100 Restaurant.com eGift Card

*             Plant 75 Trees for $75 - Receive a $200 Restaurant.com eGift Card

*             Plant 100 Trees for $100 - Receive a $500 Restaurant.com eGift Card 

Restaurant.com offers over 50,000 dining rewards nationwide and they have no expiration.

We think the program is terrific for year-end and holiday gift-giving, employee recognition, customer appreciation, and several of our business partners agree!

The International Legal Technology Association’s Executive Director Randi Mayes acknowledged that the program is a great deal for ILTA members. “It’s a win-win-win: more trees, more great dining experiences, more great gift opportunities!”

Selecta Auto Body owner J.R. Hubbard asked, “Can we share this on our Facebook page?”

Yes – please do!  Help to spread the word so we can plant millions of trees this holiday season and give out valuable dining rewards, while saving on gift wrap and shipping – an easy, affordable and very “green” holiday shopping option.

The Association of Wedding Gown Specialists, a long-time Carbonfund.org Partner with their ZeroCarbon wedding gown preservations program, circulated the campaign link among their membership.

And ‘feel-good’ online shoes company Planet Shoes is posting to social media and blogging about our program.  Says Planet, Inc. President Phil Meynard, “Carbonfund.org helps you ‘feel-good’ about your gifting this season by helping you do something wonderful for both the environment and your loved ones!”

Join in!  Help us promote this year-end/holiday tree-planting and dining rewards campaign – post it on your social media, send out an email blast to employees, customers, supporters – we’ll mention your organization in our next program update and blog about your support!
