New Initiative will Help Plant Trees in California Forests Devastated by Wildfires
FREMONT, Calif. (December 2, 2020)— Foxit Software, a leading provider of innovative PDF products and services, helping knowledge workers to increase their productivity and do more with documents, today announced they have entered into a partnership with reforestation non-profit One Tree Planted to help plant trees in fire ravaged California forests.
The program with One Tree Planted will plant one tree in California Forests for every PDF Compressor sold. Foxit selected California forests due to the unprecedented wildfire season that saw over two million acres of land burned in the state in 2020, compared to 118,000 acres burned during 2019. Foxit plans to expand this partnership to different regions in the future.
“We thought partnering with an organization like One Tree Planted was incredibly important as we work towards reducing our own carbon footprint,” said Alisa Fetic, Director of Marketing with Foxit Software. “Foxit’s products are instrumental in helping organizations in all different industries to go paperless and this initiative brings that focus full circle.”
Planting trees is one of the best ways to combat the damaging effects of climate change. Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80 percent of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. Trees also provide tremendous social impacts by providing jobs to over 1.6 billion people, empowering women in underdeveloped nations, and supporting communities devastated by environmental damage.
The partnership is designed to be simple for customers to get involved in global reforestation. For every PDF Compressor sold from Foxit, the company will work with One Tree Planted to plant one tree. The trees are planted by local partner organizations and community volunteers.
