Building on its commitment to the Arbor Day Foundation to plant 100,000 trees over the next four years, RISO’s (Danvers, MA) branch offices will host tree planting events in local communities nationwide.

“Protecting the environment is important to RISO,” says Todd Deluca, president and COO. “And planting trees in the communities we serve confirms our vision of responsibility to our customers, our employees and our dealers to help offset the impact that other printing devices have on the environment.”

The campaign will make stops in many cities, including Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh and Tampa, with the potential of tree plantings being held in other major markets.

“The RISO planting initiative will create vital habitat for wildlife, save our streams from erosion and clean our air,” says Matt Harris, president of the Arbor Day Foundation. “The Arbor Day Foundation is fortunate to have a number of strong corporate partners to support our mission, and through this project, RISO joins that responsible dedicated group.”
