Branching out: Car rental company plants trees in Wicklow as part of environmental project
A car rental company is turning over a new leaf as part of an environmental project that will see 50 million trees planted across the globe.
And as part of Enterprise Rent-A-Car’s pledge, a group of 20 employees participated in a tree planting day at the Ardeo Sport Horses facility at Mount John, Newcastle, Co Wicklow, recently.
The group was joined by Councillor Shay Cullen, Cathaoirleach of the Wicklow Municipal District, who helped the team to plant a mix of whitethorn, hawthorn and holly shrubs.
George O’Connor MD of Enterprise Rent-A-Car Ireland said: “Our team had a great day in Co. Wicklow as another group of our Ireland employees played their part in achieving our 50 million trees pledge.
“As part of the initiative, to date we have supported the planting of some 115,000 trees at various sites across Ireland.”
Councillor Cullen said: “I was delighted to see the Enterprise team come to Wicklow as part of their tree planting pledge. I am only too happy to get out and support such corporate social responsibility projects that bring about real benefits to communities across Ireland, including our own here in Co Wicklow.”
