Sparklight Extends Partnership with the Arbor Day
Foundation to Plant 130,000 Trees
April 25, 2023 – Phoenix – In honor of Arbor Day, Sparklight® is pleased to announce it has extended its partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation to plant trees on behalf of customers who switch to paperless billing. Now in its ninth year, the partnership has resulted in 130,000 trees being planted in Sparklight markets and national forests.
“Planting trees in forests of greatest need can have a substantial impact on surrounding animals, plants, and communities," said Dan Lambe, Chief Executive at the Arbor Day Foundation. "We are encouraged by Sparklight's passion to help create a greener future through the power of trees and we look forward to the continued impact that we can have together."
Paperless billing is part of Sparklight’s ongoing effort to offer customers more choices while reducing the company’s impact on the environment. Paperless billing also provides Sparklight customers with secure online access to their statements, payment options, and account history.
“We’re excited to extend our partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation and help make a positive impact in the communities we serve,” said Trish Niemann, Sparklight Vice President of Communications Strategy. “By choosing paperless billing and online statement delivery, customers can join Sparklight in protecting our environment while at the same time enjoying the convenience and security that paperless billing offers.”
According to the Arbor Day Foundation, Cable One’s efforts have resulted in avoiding and sequestering more than 324,866 metric tons of carbon; avoiding and removing more than 874 tons of air pollution; and avoiding more than 43,719,710 gallons of water runoff.
