TurnOnGreen Partners with Reforestation Non-Profit One Tree Planted
Milpitas, CA, Mar. 17, 2022– TurnOnGreen, Inc. (“TurnOnGreen”), has partnered with the reforestation non-profit One Tree Planted. The TurnOnGreen “One4One“ initiative aims to help restore U.S. forests by planting one tree for every residential and commercial Electric Vehicle charging unit sold and raising additional donations from clients and corporate partners.
The initiative seeks to plant a minimum of 10,000 trees a year over the next ten years. TurnOnGreen’s partnership with One Tree Planted reflects its commitment to sustainability and mitigation of the negative impact of carbon emissions. The initiative aims at offsetting carbon footprint by planting one tree for every TurnOnGreen electric vehicle charger purchased.
“TurnOnGreen is committed to green energy technology and promoting zero-emission transportation solutions,” said Marcus Charuvastra, Chief Revenue Officer for TurnOnGreen. “Sustainability is a huge part of our corporate culture, and a partnership with One Tree Planted is a perfect way for our employees, customers, and partners to contribute to the reforestation of Planet Earth.”
In one year, a mature tree will absorb more than 24 kilograms of carbon dioxide (“CO2”) from the atmosphere and release oxygen in exchange, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture website. The Environmental Protection Agency estimates the average internal combustion engine passenger vehicle emits around 4,600 kilograms of CO2 each year. It takes about 200 mature trees to offset the CO2 output of one standard passenger vehicle. As of 2021, One Tree Planted has more than 40 million trees in the ground, equivalent to an estimated 200,000 internal combustion engine vehicles’ annual CO2 emissions.
“Last year in California, where TurnOnGreen is headquartered, we saw an unprecedented number of fires that destroyed over 2.5 million acres,” said Amos Kohn, Chief Executive Officer for TurnOnGreen. “Our partnership with One Tree Planted will have a direct impact on our environment today and the well-being of Californians in the future. We are privileged to be a part of the solution.”
