New Environmental Protection Campaign At Würth Elektronik
In 2022, one tree will be planted for every sample order placed in the United States, Canada, and Latin America. To make this possible, Würth Elektronik is partnering with One Tree Planted, a nonprofit organization focused on supporting reforestation throughout the world. One Tree Planted also helps educate people on the many benefits of trees, including that they provide clean air and water, habitats for wildlife, and a positive social impact.
To let customers know about the initiative, sample orders will be packed with recyclable paper tape and stickers featuring “One Sample Order = One Tree Planted” and a QR code linked to more information. As a way to further include employees, customers, and partners in the initiative, a fundraiser page has also been created where anyone is able to donate directly to One Tree Planted. This is a way for anyone to feel inspired to contribute to the cause. It will also serve as a benchmark to see how how many trees have been donated; both from the sample orders and individual donations.
This partnership is another way in which Würth Elektronik is taking steps to improve sustainability and care for the environment.
