Popular airport parking deals site OnAirParking.com is proud to announce its partnership with the National Forest Foundation to plant 250,000 trees over the next five years to help reduce carbon emissions produced by its travelers.
San Francisco, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/23/2019 --On Air Parking, the airport parking reservation company that launched the best-selling Denver International Airport and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport parking deals for $3.90 and $2.75 a day respectively, is pleased to announce its commitment to plant 250,000 trees over the next five years through the National Forest Foundation (NFF) under the 'Park Once, Plant A Tree' program this Earth Day, April 22.
"The 'Park Once, Plant A Tree' program is our way to start a new purpose for our company," said Murray. "For every car we park in our partner parking facilities, we will plant one tree."
"A single tree can sequester a half ton of carbon in one hundred years, more than enough to offset the carbon emissions produced by our travelers when they drive to and from our partner parking facilities."
"The National Forest Foundation is proud to partner with On Air Parking to reforest our National Forests. By planting a tree on a National Forest for each car parked, the 'Park Once, Plant A Tree' program is directly engaging Americans in supporting our mission and campaign to plant 50 million trees. It is partnerships like these - which spread our message and foster an appreciation for our National Forests - that help drive the momentum of our tree-planting campaign," said NFF President and CEO Mary Mitsos.
The NFF, chartered by Congress, engages Americans in community-based and national programs that promote the health and public enjoyment of the 193-million-acre National Forest System. On Earth Day 2018, it launched a national campaign to plant 50 million trees on National Forests to help combat a growing need for reforestation on the public lands.
Murray said he felt compelled to take action after the California wildfires struck last year.
"We are in a unique position to help reduce carbon emissions. By reducing the price of parking, we also enable our travelers to park once and then take public transport." Murray added by purchasing parking ahead of time before going into a city or an airport instead of driving around, carbon emissions can be reduced. Industry studies found that on average Americans lose 17 hours every year searching for parking.
"Now every time travelers park, a tree will be planted in their honor. We are very excited for this initiative to take off. We invite others to join us and step up for the environment."
