For the 22nd consecutive year, IKEA Canada co-workers will join Tree Canada to plant over 2,000 trees and shrubs in 17 communities across Canada as part of its ongoing commitment to sustainability and support for local communities.
Canada In 17 communities
Since the partnership began in 1996, IKEA Canada together with Tree Canada have planted over 51,000 trees to help green communities.
The trees IKEA co-workers plant nationwide provide significant benefit to communities including reducing noise, cleaning air, preventing soil erosion, protecting wetlands, helping urban wildlife and biodiversity and creating beautiful shaded places for people to play and relax in their local community.
This year, the trees planted will help to enhance the urban tree canopies in neighbourhoods near IKEA stores. ■
