Eddie Bauer nears 5 million mark. (Clippings).
The "Add a dollar, Plant a tree" program allows customers to add one dollar to their store, catalog, or online purchases, thereby planting one tree in a Global ReLeaf ecosystem restoration project.
Among the Global ReLeaf projects sponsored by Eddie Bauer this year are:
* a multi-year effort to plant 100,000 trees in the Mountains to Sound Greenway in Washington state. The greenway will link urban and rural lands along I-90 from Seattle up and over the Cascade Mountains. The project will preserve sensitive salmon habitat and diversify tree cover.
* the planting of 280,000 Atlantic white cedar, cypress, oak, and tupelo to reforest a 1,800-acre tract in Virginia's Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge. Sprawl is encroaching on the area surrounding the refuge and site restoration is crucial for the long-term viability of black bear, endangered southeastern short-tailed shrew, and other wildlife populations.
* the planting of 50,000 trees near Sudhury, Ontario to restore a landscape severely damaged by industrial pollution. The trees are among hundreds of thousands the retailer has planted in Canada since beginning its partnership with Global ReLeaf.
