The company plants 1,500 trees in recognition of the ongoing sustainability efforts of their retail partners
(Tampa, FL) VÃ¤xa International, a leading manufacturer of homeopathic medicine, vitamins and nutritional supplements, recently partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation to plant 1,500 trees as part of the Foundationâs âOur Trees in Celebrationâ program. This effort will help reforest areas in Gallatin National Forest that were destroyed by fire. Gallatin National Forest covers 1.8 million acres in southwestern Montana, sharing its borders with Yellowstone National Park. The forest is home to an abundance of wildlife, including bighorn sheep, elk, grizzlies, bald eagles, gray wolves, and lynx.
VÃ¤xa has long been concerned with contributing to the sustainable development of society by addressing the economic, environmental, and social impact of its actions and products, explains Gerry David, president of VÃ¤xa International.
âWe made a concrete commitment to include sustainability in our business model by hiring a chief sustainability officer, Linda Loren, whose role is to actively seek sustainable solutions for all aspects of the companyâfrom employee wellbeing to product consumption and distribution. Working with the Arbor Day Foundation on this kind of notable effort is exactly the kind of project we are honored to be involved with.â
âWe are always pleased to partner with businesses as part of the Foundationâs âOur Trees in Celebrationâ program. VÃ¤xa Internationalâs generous pledge will help reforest a vital part of Gallatin National Forest. We salute their efforts and encourage other businesses to follow their lead,â says Kevin Sander, Director of Corporate Partnerships, of the Arbor Day Foundation.
âWeâre planting these trees in recognition of the ongoing sustainability efforts of all of our retail partners,â says Linda Loren, the companyâs chief sustainability officer. âItâs truly a wonderful way to acknowledge our gratitude to themâand to our environment.â
