ZIVELO teamed with Trees for the Future, an agroforestry resource center with a mission to restore degraded lands by planting trees. Trees for the Future has already planted 65 million trees around the world, and ZIVELO will add to that number by planting three trees for every kiosk purchased. Already the two have teamed up to plant 11,500 trees in Haiti and Brazil. ZIVELO works with organizations around Indiana to plant locally as well.

Customers wanting to go green already had reason to appreciate the ZIVELO product: The manufacturer uses a minimum amount of post-consumer materials and EPA-approved powder coat finishes, recycles throughout all its facilities, produces their kiosk enclosures with fully recyclable aircraft-grade aluminum, and offers purchase credits to companies that want to trade in their old kiosks for ZIVELO terminals, to be used in third world countries or recycled. But the tree-planting initiative allows customers to see a tangible result — because of their purchase, at no extra cost to them, the world is literally greener.

It’s popular for companies to claim environmentally-friendly practices — it’s quite another thing to dedicate a company’s core values to the cause. In the business world, “going green” is not required. But as some of these industry-leading manufacturers are demonstrating, when sustainability is made a priority, the investment results in goodwill, a better environment and, for many companies, profits. It’s no wonder so many U.S. manufacturers, looking to shed recent tough environmental and economic history, are leading the way to a greener future.
