Las Vegas, NV, February 3, 2010,— Global Sky, a US and Philippines based call center, is pleased to announce it is exceeding its goal to plant more than 1,000 trees with Eco-Libris by the end of 2010. Global Sky’s initiative, launched on August 2009, to plant 1 tree for every call center seat filled has already resulted in more than 600 trees planted in developing countries.
Global Sky partnered back in 2009 with Eco-Libris, a green business that works to balance out the paper used for books by planting trees, as part of its efforts to positively impact the environment and to promote greater awareness among its clients of environmental issues.
The initiative with Eco-Libris is a continuation of Global Sky’s green initiative which features a 10% price discount for all clients who are undertaking similar environmentally focused efforts.
“It feels good knowing that long after we’re gone, the investments we make in mother Earth will keep on yielding,” says James Stinson, Global Sky’s CEO. “That kind of productivity is hard to measure.” James says with a grin.
“We are very impressed with the commitment of Global Sky and the progress they made so far to meet their initial goal of planting over 1,000 trees with us”, says Raz Godelnik, CEO of Eco-Libris. “We hope this will be another example of how you can do well by doing good, as Global Sky is building its reputation among clients as a socially-responsible company and a trusted partner.”
The trees planted on behalf of Global Sky are planted with Eco-Libris partners that work in collaboration with local communities in developing countries in Latin America and Africa, where deforestation is a crucial problem. Planting trees in these places not only helps to fight climate change and conserve soil and water, but also benefits many local people, for whom these trees offer many benefits, such as improvement of crops and additional food and income, and an opportunity for a better future.
