“The outdoor playground is critically important to all of us, and it is not replaceable”, said Jerry Heinlen, CEO of Yakima. “Our Planet Payback initiative not only gives us a clear sustainability plan, but also, enables our associates, consumers and channel partners to team up with Yakima to support the very important goals of carbon reduction and sustainability. We want to do our part to reduce our carbon footprint, minimize our impact on our environment, and engage others to do the same. Carbonfund.org has an excellent track record and we believe they will be a strong partner in Yakima’s Planet Payback initiative.”
