Centon Electronics, Inc. Releases its DataStick Green USB Flash Drive

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 Staples Canada.

"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."
