S'well Celebrates Arbor Day with American Forests

 

In celebration of Arbor Day on April 28th, S’well proudly supports American Forests’ restoration efforts in the U.S. and around the world. Together, we’ve planted more than half a million trees since 2013. Forests contribute to the health and well-being of our planet, and the American Forests organization is working hard to preserve and protect this globally important initiative.

In 2014, S’well planted 20,000 trees in places like Florida’s Osceola National Forest that was severely damaged by the County Line Fire in 2012. A turning point for the partnership was in 2015, when S’well hit a milestone of planting over half a million trees with American Forests to help restore critical ecosystems that suffered from major fires in 2012, such as the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests in Idaho, which were devastated by the McGuire Fire, and Oregon’s Deschutes National Forest, which was hit by the Pole Creek Fire.

More than half of U.S. drinking water originates in forests, and one tree alone can filter up to 36,500 gallons of water per year. That’s why it is so important to help keep our forests healthy —more clean water for us all! S’well is a proud partner of American Forests, who works tirelessly to protect and restore our forests.
