Our goal is to plant 10,000 trees in Haiti for Earth Month. Haiti has faced significant natural disasters of late, primarily earthquakes and landslides. The worst effects of these natural disasters are linked to deforestation and unsustainable land management.

Also, Haiti is the poorest country in the western hemisphere, whose history is marked with political instability and poverty. When you plant trees in Haiti, your donation helps us provide agricultural techniques and 400,000 seedlings to 800 farmers over the next year. Additionally, you'll be entered into our contest for a $500 Restaurant.com eGift card!

Earth Day is coming up – what are you doing to celebrate the Earth and the fragile environment in which we live? 

Carbonfund.org is planting trees.  With the support of our business partners and individual donors, we continue to work with important tree-planting projects around the world.

 This year, our tree-planting campaign includes Restaurant.com dining rewards in our Plant a Tree – Dine for Free program.  It’s a great way to plant trees for Earth Day while honoring new customers, donating a tree for each April sale or customer, and recognizing the contribution your employees make all year long. 

One of our business supporters, EORM (Environmental & Occupational Risk Management, Inc.), chose to plant 1500 trees for Earth Day and to receive sixty $50 Restaurant.com dining rewards to use as employee recognitions throughout the year. 

EORM provides a comprehensive range of strategic, management and technical consulting solutions, partnering with clients to achieve their Environmental, Health, Safety and Sustainability short-term needs and long-term goals.  EORM also seeks to make a positive impact on the world every day, by enabling companies to be socially and globally responsible, protect and support employees, and preserve the environment.  

EORM employees and clients are the foundation of the company and the source of its success.  Investment in EORM employees, including acknowledging accomplishments and achievements, is essential to the company’s overall success.  This year, the Plant a Tree – Dine for Free program will contribute to EORM’s environmental commitment and to the ongoing development and appreciation of its employees.

The month of April can get everyone thinking green – spring takes hold in most places, trees are budding new leaves, and Earth Day celebrations are in the works. 

Some environmentally aware organizations think green all year ‘round and make efforts to maintain their environmental commitments as ongoing business priorities.  New Carbonfund.org supporter, Green Cloud Technologies, launched a program in 2014 to recognize each customer by planting a tree in their honor.  Not only does Green Cloud provide environmentally responsible solutions for data management, Green Cloud also cares about preserving the world’s habitat. Their commitment to donate one tree per customer every quarter to Carbonfund.org should result in more than 1500 trees planted this year. 

If a business isn’t in “the Cloud”, a significant portion of company resources may go toward implementing, managing, and maintaining a traditional business IT environment.  The Cloud changes all of this. Cloud technology connects your business to servers, applications, and other managed services located at a data center. Users access these resources via their laptops, smartphones, tablets, or desktops via the Internet. 

Likewise, tree-planting projects around the world connect and enhance the environment by improving soil quality, reducing erosion, providing local community-based jobs, and better air and water quality.  Now, Green Cloud Technologies customers are participating with their data management provider in critical environmental preservation projects around the world. 

What have you done lately to green your world?  Consider the example set by Green Cloud Technologies and join us in a tree-planting initiative of your own.
