2005 National Arbor Day Awards

Promise the Earth Award

Promise to the Earth Award

Albertsons Inc., Boise, Idaho

Albertsons, one of the world’s largest food and drug retailers, sold the Foundation’s Gift Trees across the nation around the time of Arbor Day 2004. These trees were stored in specially designed, recyclable plastic tubes that included instructions for converting the tube into a bird feeder. A portion of the proceeds helped support the Foundation’s tree-planting efforts. These packaged conifer seedlings were sold in their appropriate growing zones and were available in the floral department and gift aisles.
