ecoATM (Pro)-Tree Planting Policy
We here at ecoATM love trees, they help keep the planet cooler, look good, and keep our air clean. So we plant lots of them. As we collect more devices, good or bad, ecoATM makes ongoing donations to a variety of organizations that plant trees supporting sustainability throughout the hemisphere. Our preferred partner is Trees For The Future in Haiti which plants deforested areas.
