For this year’s Earth Month, Facedrive committed to plant one tree for every restaurant partner that participated in its #GoGreenwithFD campaign. Facedrive is proud to announce that it will be planting 1,000 trees for this campaign. This year, Facedrive has partnered with the City of Markham’s Trees for Tomorrow program to plant trees locally within the city.
Facedrive has regularly partnered with Forests Ontario to engage in local tree planting initiatives since its inception. This year, Facedrive is thrilled to have chosen the City of Markham as the recipient of the trees, which will help support the city’s Trees for Tomorrow program and contribute towards the City’s target of achieving a 30 percent tree canopy.
“The City of Markham is pleased to be selected as the recipient for Facedrive’s GoGreenwithFD tree planting campaign,” said Markham Mayor Frank Scarpitti. “We are thankful that companies such as Facedrive share our vision to fight climate change and create a more sustainable community.”
Campbell Park, part of the Rouge Valley Trail, will be the designated location for the new trees. The tree planting is scheduled to take place within the next four to six weeks, in accordance with the province’s COVID-19 health and safety guidelines.
“Facedrive has a history of partnering with local organizations to support tree planting programs and help the residents benefit directly from our collective efforts,” said Suman Pushparajah, COO at Facedrive. “We are positive that by working alongside the City of Markham, together we can make the city a greener and better place to live, work and play.”
