Las Vegas Color Graphics has committed to plant one tree for every one of its 168 employees by participating in CarbonFund.org’s Plant a Million Trees Challenge.
Las Vegas, NV – April 7, 2010 – Las Vegas Color Graphics (LVCG) is committed to protecting and sustaining the environment every day of the year, but for Earth Day 2010 they want to celebrate in an extra special way.
Because of LVCG’s partnership with CarbonFund.org they are able to participate in CarbonFund.org’s Earth Day 2010 Plant a Million Trees Challenge and will do so by planting one tree for every LVCG employee. That’s 168 trees!
“We are excited to celebrate Earth Day this year by purchasing a tree for each employee. Including our entire team in this unique Earth Day celebration reinforces the fact that every LVCG team member plays an important role in preserving and replenishing the environment. We’re celebrating Earth Day on April 22nd yet it’s very important to LVCG that we focus on being environmental stewards every day of the year.”
– Heidi Bridges, President
