In 2007, the Moonlight Fire burned through 65,000 acres of the Plumas National Forest, damaging important watersheds, threatening 500 homes, destroying wildlife habitats and recreational areas.
Last month, 15,000 trees (so far!) were planted in this area as part of a larger reforestation project led by One Tree Planted to restore nearly 13,000 acres of National Forest over the next few years. Our involvement in this project was due to our deal with Fortune 200 business process services giant, SYNNEX, who are the first in the US to benefit with our carbon neutral, remanufactured laptops.
Reforestation projects are important to us, which is why we plant 5 trees for every laptop sold through our partnerships with One Tree Planted and WeForest.
