PARK CITY, Utah — Stein Collection is expanding its commitment to the planet beyond Utah’s remarkable Wasatch Mountains.
Teaming up with Evertreen, an organization dedicated to reforestation, Stein Collection plans to plant 1,000 trees in deforested areas around the world by the end of 2023, with even more in the future. This long-term endeavor is part of Stein Collection’s overall sustainability initiatives and green practices.
“We are incredibly proud to partner with Evertreen and join their far-reaching efforts to support reforestation around the world,” Russ Olsen, CEO of Stein Collection, said in a press release. “Our planet is our most valuable resource, and it is our collective responsibility to care for and restore it. We also invite our guests to consider contributing to our tree planting goals for a cleaner, greener, more sustainable future for us all.”
The collaboration between Stein Collection and Evertreen will work to withstand deforestation while protecting habitats in 12 countries globally. Evertreen’s advanced technology allows organizations and individuals to order trees for planting in their chosen countries and track their growth using satellite monitoring. These reforestation projects offset CO2 emissions, provide wildlife habitats, prevent soil erosion, and promote biodiversity. Furthermore, they create employment opportunities for locals, empowering them to contribute to global forest restoration and escape extreme poverty.
