U-Haul Customers Give $1 Million to Charity
"These donations helped us reforest more acres than we could ever have done on our own over the course of a single year, or even over a five-year period," noted U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service biologist Tim Menard. "Even now, there are birds using the restored lands at Marais des Cygnes NWR. Soon, you'll see yellow breasted chat and indigo bunting. White-tailed deer, turkey and even fresh water mussels will also benefit from these restored forests."
U-Haul continuously looks for ways to reduce, reuse and recycle; and to implement effective programs and policies to conserve energy and resources and to protect the environment. For those who are not renting U-Haul equipment, donations can be made to The Conservation Fund online at http://store.uhaul.com/planttree.
U-Haul Corporate Sustainability Initiative
U-Haul was founded by a Navy veteran who grew up in the Great Depression. Tires and gas were still rationed or in short supply during the late 1940s when U-Haul began serving U.S. customers. Today, that background is central to the U-Haul Sustainability Program: "Serving the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." Our commitment to reduce, reuse and recycle includes fuel efficient moving vans, neighborhood proximity, moving box reuse, moving pads made from discarded material and packing peanuts that are 100 percent biodegradable.
