ALISO VIEJO, CA, Jan. 19 /CNW/ - Centon Electronics, Inc. and Staples
are pleased to announce they are partnering with The ChariTREE
Foundation to support children's tree planting projects and
environmental education programs throughout Canada.
For each DataStick Green USB sold, $1 will be donated to The ChariTREE
Foundation to plant a tree in Canada.
"We believe that by taking an everyday item such as a USB flash drive
and donating a portion of the proceeds to charity, Centon and our
customers can provide support for much needed programs. We are excited
to be working with Staples Canada and ChariTREE to support the
environment and children's educational programs in Canada," said
Jennifer Miscione, Director of Sales and Marketing.
There's never been a better time to teach kids that they can make the
world a better place simply by taking an interest in their environment
and making greener choices. "Customers can shop retail knowing they
have eco-responsible options available," commented Pete Gibel, Vice
President of Merchandising and Co-Chair of the Eco Easy Committee for
"If children are going to make a lifelong commitment to protect the
environment for themselves and future generations, they first need time
to explore the wonders of nature," said Andrea Koehle Jones, Executive
Director of The ChariTREE Foundation. She says one of the best ways to
learn about the environment is to plant, care for and watch a seedling
grow into a magnificent tree. "ChariTREE is pleased to partner with
Centon and Staples. This is a terrific opportunity to give Canadian
children GREEN POWER - the power to make the world a better place."
