BACKGROUND: For the sixth consecutive year, Odwalla’s Plant-A-Tree program is branching out to bring the goodness of trees to cities and towns across the country.
This year, thousands of people logged on to odwalla.com/goodness and created a virtual Odwalla tree. For every tree created online, Odwalla pledged to plant a real tree, with a goal of planting at least 100,000 nationwide. The goal was surpassed, and together, The Nature Conservancy and Odwalla will facilitate the planting of 130,000 trees with the help of local nonprofit groups like Boston Natural Areas Network.
