In celebration of Earth Day Valley Box Company partnered with The San Diego River Park Foundation to plant trees native to the Peutz Creek Preserve. Planting trees within the San Diego River watershed will encourage a healthier ecosystem and provide wildfire restoration efforts. During this event, volunteers from the two agencies work together to plant and water Coast Live Oak Trees.
“Valley Box wants to enhance the quality of life in San Diego through stewardship of the natural ecosystem. To plant trees in recognition of Earth Day around our community not only beautifies the natural landscape, but will moderate the climate, improve the air quality, conserve water, and harbor wildlife!” explains Alicia Eschwege, Marketing Director for Valley Box Company. “Valley Box’s wood containers, built with sustainably grown forests in the USA, were the inspiration to plant trees.” This year Valley Box has donated eight Coast Live Oak trees to the foundation’s efforts to plant trees.
