Revolution Recycling Supports Tree Planting Across the Country with Forest Recovery Canada

Toronto, ON, February 13th, 2017 – Forests Ontario is proud to announce a new national tree planting partnership with Revolution Recycling Inc. in support of our Forest Recovery Canada program. The partnership kicked off in 2016 with Revolution pledging support for the planting of 1000 trees and will continue with an additional tree planted for every order of electronic waste picked up for recycling by Revolution. Together, we’re planting thousands of trees across Canada in support of a healthier ecosystem.

Forest Recovery Canada (FRC) is the national tree planting program of Forests Ontario. FRC supports forest restoration projects in ecologically significant areas to create contiguous forest cover across the country. In addition to supporting wildlife habitat and source water protection, contiguous forests have a greater capacity to sequester emissions, making them a vital asset in addressing climate change.

Revolution Recycling provides a wide range of electronics recycling services and eco-friendly disposal of IT assets. Revolution provides businesses of all sizes across Canada and the US with the pickup of electronics including phones, monitors, servers, and computers, all of which are recycled in accordance with the highest international recycling standards.

“Revolution Recycling’s efforts to give back to our natural environment on behalf of its clients will pay dividends for generations to come,” says Rob Keen, Forests Ontario CEO. “With a growing base of committed partners like Revolution, our Forest Recovery Canada program will continue to make a lasting impact on the health of Canada’s natural ecosystems.”

“Revolution Recycling’s customers choose our services because they want to get rid of their electronics in a responsible way,” says Clayton Miller, Vice President, Business Development. “To show our appreciation, we’re doubling down on our commitment to the environment by planting trees. Revolution Recycling appreciates that the Forest Recovery Canada program provides us with a simple and cost-effective way to make a significant impact in support of a cleaner and greener future.”

Forests Ontario has planted more than 25 million trees through our various programs with the support of partners like Revolution Recycling. We look forward to growing healthy and abundant forests with Revolution in the future.
