Trees That Count aims to create a national movement to plant millions of native trees to mitigate climate change. We're managed by the Project Crimson Trust in partnership with the Tindall Foundation.
Kiwis filling up at Z will help plant thousands of native trees
Z Energy customers will help plant tens of thousands more native trees this year, simply by filling up at Z service stations on October 4.
For 24 hours, Z will be donating six cents from every litre sold to Trees That Count, along with giving customers a discount of six cents per litre of fuel.
Z Chief Executive, Mike Bennetts, says the company is working with Trees that Count because of the direct impact trees have on absorbing carbon dioxide.
“Z is committed to leading the transition to a lower carbon future but every single Kiwi can do their bit if we are to limit the effects of climate change on our planet.
“Planting more trees is something everyone can support and it’s something customers have repeatedly told us they want us to do,” Mike said.
Trees That Count CEO, Adele Fitzpatrick is encouraging Kiwis to fund native trees by filling up at Z on October 4.
“The funds raised at Z for Trees That Count will support community restoration projects across the country, resulting in thousands more native trees being planted,” Adele said.
“Each native tree that is planted through our partnership with Z is a powerful tool in tackling our oversized footprint. It will clean up our environment, soak up carbon, provide food and housing for our native wildlife, improve our health and wellbeing and provide the most fun infrastructure for outside play.
“Our environmental issue is for all of us to fix. We encourage New Zealanders to help us do this by filling up at Z on October 4.”
