Tree Planting Partnerships
As part of our more than 60-year commitment to conduct business in a socially responsible manner, to help protect the environment and benefit the communities where we live and serve, U-Haul is proud to partner with two distinguished nonprofit organizations: The Conservation Fund and Tree Canada.
For our U-Haul customers in the U.S.A., our partnership with The Conservation Fund’s Go Zero® program offers customers a chance to donate $3, $5 or $10 at checkout to plant trees and offset their moving-related emissions.
To date, more than one million U-Haul customers have elected to offset their emissions, raising more than $3 million to plant 380,000 native trees on behalf of Go Zero and wildlife refuges nationwide. Over the next 100 years those trees will trap an estimated 412,000 tons of carbon dioxide.
In 2013 U-Haul and The Conservation Fund expanded this partnership. 100% of customer contributions and U-Haul matched funds continue to be forwarded to The Conservation Fund to be used toward tree planting, urban restoration and green economic development.
