Anaheim Convention Center’s Wine Sales Help
Plant Hundreds Of Trees
The Anaheim Convention Center (ACC), the largest LEED certified convention facility in the country, has partnered with Trinity Oaks Wines for the One Bottle, One Tree program and is responsible for the planting of over 1,600 trees.
In 2010, 1,600 bottles of Trinity Oaks wine were consumed during events at the Anaheim Convention Center. As a direct result of the sale of this wine, 1,600 trees have been planted.
“Trinity Oaks One Bottle, One Tree program is a fantastic corporate responsibility program. We are proud to be able to sell this fine wine and give back at the same time,” stated Jim Tripp ARAMARK General Manager.
In under three years, Trinity Oaks Wines has turned its tree-planting program, One Bottle, One Tree, into thousands of new forest acres. In partnership with the non-profit organization Trees for the Future, Trinity Oaks helps restore tree cover to tropical landscapes throughout Africa, Asia and Latin America. Trees planted in the tropics sequester more carbon dioxide each year than trees planted in drier climates. The One Bottle, One Tree program started in July of 2008 and funds a tree planting for every bottle of Trinity Oaks wine sold. The number of trees planted would cover the equivalent of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park 10 times, Boston Commons 200 times, and Chicago’s Millennium Park 400 times.
“We are incredibly pleased about the support we have given to planting more than 4.4 million trees and we have no intention of stopping anytime soon,” says Tim Peters, Marketing Director of Trinity Oaks. “The program runs all year with absolutely no limit to the number of tree plantings wefund. We’re thrilled that our partners, clients and wine consumers have all embraced the One Bottle, One Tree program.” Consumers can help the environment while enjoying the five California varietals of Trinity Oaks wines. Trinity Oaks produces Pinot Grigio, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, all with a focus on coastal climates that produce expressive and vibrant wines. Trinity Oaks’ bottle labels and marketing materials are made from 100% post-consumer-recycled paper. Consumers can visit http://www.OneBottleOneTree.com to see the live tree-planting ticker. Trinity Oaks wines are available at top restaurants, grocery and wine stores and at the Anaheim Convention Center.Since 1989, Trees for the Future has been helping communities around the world plant trees. Through seed distribution, agroforestry training, and their country programs, they have empowered rural groups to restore tree cover to their lands. Planting trees protects the environment and helps to preserve traditional livelihoods and cultures for generations. http://www.treesftf.org
