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 is founded on the fundamental philosophy that "division of use and specialization of ownership" is good for both our customers and the environment.
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.
