We are inviting business partners – big and small – in the #PlaceforLife to consider making a donation per unit of your product or service to support tree planting and restoration in our region.

Our community has felt the impacts of climate change and we need to find ways of building resilience. Tree planting is identified as one of the most important weapons in the fight against climate change. We want to do more, and need your help to make an impact in taking climate action! Donations made through this program will be used to plant more trees in the Windsor-Essex region.  Currently, our region has only 8.5% natural areas coverage.  The United Nations, and the Windsor-Essex community, have set a goal of 12% natural areas minimum for environmental sustainability.

In February of 2020, WindsorEats become the first Partner in Sustainability. Learn more about their commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility and how you, too, can make a difference.

Do you want to make a difference and take climate action? Partners in Sustainability is also intended as a way for individuals to to reduce their carbon footprints by planting trees in our region.

A donation of $5 will plant one native seedling tree at a restoration site, allowing individuals and families to take climate action and reduce their carbon impacts through local tree planting efforts.

For instance, while we always encourage people to drive and fly less, people can take climate action to reduce their travel impacts by planting a tree for every 100 kilometers that you drive; or 4 trees for every 1000 kilometres that you fly. 51 trees, or a tax deductible donation of $255, will plant enough trees to minimize the annual average impact of natural gas and electricity for a 1500 square foot home.

Drive less, fly less, reduce your energy consumption, compost food waste, say ‘no’ to ‘fast fashion’, and consider planting trees as your personal commitments to climate action.

Every 100km you drive is worth 1 tree

Every 1000km you fly is worth 4 trees

The annual electricity use of an average Ontario home* is worth 10 trees
*based on the average annual usage for a 1500 square foot home
The annual natural gas use of an average Ontario home* is worth 41 trees
*based on the average annual usage for a 1500 square foot home
