HostPapa Donates 10,000 Trees for Earth Day 2011

(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – HostPapa Green Web Hosting has donated 10,000 trees to school children in Africa, Haiti and North America, in celebration of Earth Day. The donation, made through a partnership with LoveTrees.ca, marks the completion of a very successful awareness campaign.

“A month ago, we set out to encourage HostPapa customers, their friends and family, and the general public to join us in our efforts to plant 10,000 of trees through Love Trees,” says Sylvain Patry, Senior Vice-President of Business Development for HostPapa Inc.

“Our Earth Day initiative was embraced by the HostPapa family and beyond. We are proud to announce we have reached our goal, and very excited to make this donation in the name of everyone who came on board!”

Love Trees manages a global children’s educational tree planting program. Since 2006, Love Trees has given thousands of trees to schoolchildren around the world, empowering them by also providing them with the tools and skills to be active stewards of the environment.

HostPapa, a green web hosting pioneer, offers high-value, low-cost reliable web hosting that is 100% powered by green renewable energy. Developing a partnership with LoveTrees.ca was, and is, an excellent fit for both organizations.

The Earth Day initiative was simple: for every person that visited HostPapa’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/hostpapa ) and clicked “like,” HostPapa donated a tree. In less than a month, 10,000 likes turned into 10,000 trees!

“We will continue to reaffirm our commitment to the environment and our position as a leading green web hosting company,” says Patry. “HostPapa is always on the lookout for new partners and new ways to give back to the Earth. Stay tuned!”
