2011 National Arbor Day Awards

Promise to the Earth Award

Wyndham Worldwide

Wyndham Worldwide

Wyndham Worldwide received the Promise to the Earth Award, which recognizes sustained commitment and leadership by a corporation partnering with the Arbor Day Foundation on special projects. Wyndham Vacation Ownership resorts serve Arbor Day Foundation coffee to provide a better way of life for the people who live and work under the canopy of Peru's rain forest. The coffee comes from shade-grown beans and growers who live in three different villages. These properties have made a commitment to purchase a minimum of 200,000 pounds of coffee each year for the next two years. This will help support the farmers, their families and entire communities in the region by ensuring they receive a fair wage. These growers now have access to healthcare and better housing and schooling for their children. By purchasing coffee grown underneath the rain forest canopy, Wyndham Worldwide is helping people and preserving vital rainforests and the ecosystems it supports.
