We feel pretty strongly about trees here at Glee. By which we mean, we LOVE them.
Glee Gum is made with sustainably harvested chicle from sapodilla trees (and you can watch that process here!). Our company is also a proud partner of Trees for the Future, an agroforestry resource center that brings sustainable land management programs to developing countries (we welcome you to participate in our related tree planting program here!).
This past weekend, we got a chance to do some tree planting right near our Rhode Island headquarters. Thanks to a splendid award from the Providence Neighborhood Planting Program, we received free trees (plus soil and sidewalk preparation) in exchange for several hours of volunteer time spent planting them. Neighbors joined our Gleeful crew, and we planted a total of 18 beautiful new trees in Upper South Providence. We can’t wait to watch them grow!
Here are a few snapshots from the day.
