The NFF helps restore National Forests in the U.S. and encourages an environmentally-friendly future. Planet Home Lending will fund the planting of three trees for every loan closed, up to 30,000 trees, in 2020. This partnership will help plant native seedlings on publicly owned National Forests, as well as provide significant carbon storage benefits.
“It is important for us to be responsible to our planet and serve our customers, employees and communities in the best way possible,” said Michael Dubeck, CEO and president of Planet Financial Group. “We look forward to participating in the National Forest Foundations’ tree planting program for a second year.”
Planet Home Lending is participating in NFF’s “50 Million For Our Forests” campaign, which is a movement to plant 50 million trees and replant National Forests. The NFF tree planting program helps clean air, filter water and make forests healthy by targeting reforestation efforts where National Forests were damaged. This partnership is part of Planet Home Lending’s larger campaign Planet with a Purpose, which focuses on being environmentally conscious.
“We’re happy to continue our partnership with Planet Home Lending,” said Wes Swaffar, director of reforestation and partnerships at NFF. “Planet Home Lending is making a serious commitment to being good, active corporate citizens. Through the company’s dedication to the environment, and specifically our shared National Forests, we are excited to see it invest in the future of America.”
