U-Haul Customers Contribute to Planting Two Million Trees Through the Conservation Fund’s Go Zero Program
Since 2007, more than 770,000 U-Haul customers have elected to offset their emissions, raising nearly $2.5 million to plant more than 290,000 native trees on behalf of Go Zero and wildlife refuges nationwide.
U-Haul, the largest do-it-yourself moving company in North America, wanted to give its customers renting equipment at more than 15,000 locations in the U.S. and Canada and on uhaul.com a simple way to make their move a little bit greener.
U-Haul has made a concerted effort to manufacture equipment that not only serves its customers well, but is also environmentally friendly. So it comes as no surprise that U-Haul would be involved in programs with partners who have the same philosophy.
We believe the primary responsibility of U-Haul is to develop products and services to help people move and store their household and commercial goods in an economically, environmentally and socially responsible manner.
