Plant a Tree for Arbor Day with Mohawk

COHOES, NY—06/24/09—Mohawk Fine Papers, Inc. is proud to sponsor a tree planting drive with the Arbor Day Foundation. Beginning July 1, 2009 and ending December 31, 2010, Mohawk will host a fundraising event, in collaboration with the Arbor Day Foundation, to plant new trees in our nation’s forests.

Donations can be made at the checkout of Mohawk’s new e-commerce site,

For every $1 contributed, the Arbor Day Foundation will plant one new tree, and because Mohawk plans to match each dollar up to $8,000, two trees will then be planted for every dollar donated. This means that 16,000 trees could be planted during this time!

Mohawk’s partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation is just one more example of its commitment to the environment and raising sustainability awareness.

“Mohawk is excited about working with the Arbor Day Foundation to replant national forests that have been devastated by drought, disease, insects and wildfires. Replanting is essential to the health and quality of the forests. This need is critical in areas where natural regrowth is impossible or could take hundreds of years. Every tree planted will help to stabilize soils, reduce runoff, store carbon, sustain wildlife and restore the natural beauty of our nation’s forests for the benefit of future generations,” says Michelle Carpenter, Manager, Corporate Environmental Initiatives, Mohawk Fine Papers.
