Arbor Day Foundation
A legacy of doing good. A commitment to doing better.
In 2018, P&G established Ambition 2030 — new sustainability goals created to enable and inspire positive impact on our environment and society. These broad-reaching commitments focus on P&G brands, supply chain, society and employees in an effort to address finite resources and growing consumption.
Believing that none of us should have to choose between using the products we enjoy today and what we all need to preserve our tomorrow, P&G Family Care brands collaborate with many organizations to deliver on these commitments. One example of this collaboration is with the Arbor Day Foundation, which awarded P&G Family Care the 2018 Friend of the Forest Award for our commitment to using trees and forests to achieve corporate substantiality goals.
Our family care brands — including Charmin, Puffs and Bounty — are working to protect and enhance the forests we all depend on. Charmin, Puffs and Bounty products are all made with third-party certified fibers and for every tree used, at least one is regrown.
Partnering for growth
In order to create these solutions surrounding our sustainability efforts, P&G has relied on key partnerships, like the one we have with the Arbor Day Foundation. Founded in 1972, it’s the largest nonprofit membership organization dedicated to the planting of trees. The Arbor Day Foundation works to restore forests, improve tree cover in communities and inspire the next generation of tree planters.
In fact, more than 1 million members, supporters and partners have helped plant more than 350 million trees throughout the world, helping to ensure a greener and healthier future for everyone. And we’re committed to helping support these efforts.
Donating your points will allow for trees to be planted in a dedicated forest at Tyndall Air Force Base in Panama City, Florida. After a Category 5 hurricane passed directly over the base in 2018, the area suffered major wind and surge damage. Twelve-thousand acres of mature slash pine trees snapped in half. And while the base has funding for the cleanup effort, they need the support of our P&G Good Everyday community to replace the trees and ensure a healthy, forested future for this ground.
The forests at Tyndall Air Force Base suffered major damage after Hurricane Michael struck in 2018.
P&G brands are focusing on making a positive impact with efforts that include encouraging the recycling of plastic waste — especially “flexible plastics” like Charmin or Bounty wraps and plastic bags from your trips to the grocery store. Because these wraps, bags and films get tangled up in the equipment used by curbside recycling programs, they have to undergo a special recycling process through store drop-off. If you put them in your curbside bin, they’ll likely make their way to your local landfill. You can learn more about flexible plastics here.
We are committed to going above and beyond what it takes to make our family care products create collective solutions that have a greater impact on people, forests and the world. There are easy ways for you to help, too. One is using store drop-off recycling to ensure that your flexible plastics don’t end up in landfills. Another way is supporting the Arbor Day Foundation through one of the many ways you can get involved and make a difference.
