Congratulations to the Phillies–they scored two home runs during Tuesday night’s game, which means 101 more trees to support Plant One Million! (Update: the Phils are now up to 103 after Wednesday’s game.)
For each home run hit by a Phillies player during the 2012 regular season, Plant One Million will plant a tree to support the goal. The trees will be planted in parks, municipalities, and watershed areas throughout the 13-county region at the end of baseball season.
Home Runs for Trees is a natural fit for the Phillies, whose ongoing Red Goes Green campaign encompasses clean energy, recycling, and volunteerism. ARAMARK, a Philadelphia-based leader in professional services, is also a partner in Home Runs for Trees and has a demonstrated commitment to environmental stewardship.
Our area is greener and cleaner because of the Phillies and ARAMARK. Our thanks and congratulations go out to them and all those who support their efforts!
