Great Eastern Energy Donates Trees to Communities in Need on Earth Day

30 Days of Green Campaign to Raise Awareness of Sustainable Practices Through Collaboration With Trees for the Future

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 14, 2015) - In celebration of Earth Day on April 22nd, Great Eastern Energy (GEE), is collaborating with Trees for the Future for a 30 Days of Green Campaign to raise awareness about sustainable practices and to assist with their efforts in planting new trees in impoverished communities.

As part of this campaign, GEE will post a new green tip on its Facebook page every day from March 24th through April 22nd. GEE will then donate the cost of planting one new tree to Trees for the Future for every post that is liked or shared.

"As an energy provider we take the well-being of our planet very seriously," says Virginie Glaenzer, EVP Marketing at GEE. "By sharing these posts we hope to raise awareness about simple lifestyle changes that conserve resources and reduce consumption."

Trees for the Future is an organization dedicated to planting trees, not only for ecological reasons, but to benefit those in need in communities in Africa.

"This Earth Day will be a fantastic opportunity to educate the public about our work and how everyone can help just by educating ourselves on how our daily habits affect the Earth," says John Leary, Executive Director Trees for the Future. "We are excited to work with Great Eastern Energy, a company that shares our dedication to creating a sustainable future."

The campaign will culminate with all 30 green tips being available via a PDF download on GEE's website.
