Giving back to our community and the environment is something Sunco Lighting and our employees value. We are happy to introduce “Sunco Cares,” our new initiative devoted to ensuring we do business in a sustainable world.
Conserve Energy & Help Us Promote a Sustainable Future
Our mission of a sustainable environment is something that customers like you also participate in through your Sunco Lighting purchases. Sunco makes periodic charitable donations to worthy conservation organizations.
Want to help Sunco promote a more sustainable future? Choose to donate directly to support green initiatives at home and abroad or volunteer your time. Here are a few worthy organizations.
Trees for the Future: Planting Trees Changes Lives
Mission: To improve the livelihoods of impoverished farmers by revitalizing degraded lands.
Forest gardens are far more beneficial than conventional agriculture. Supporting these communities – across six countries in Sub-Saharan Africa – provides a big impact to families so they can grow and manage Forest Gardens.
Trees for the Future identifies a group of farmers – around 300 families at a time – who have both a need and a high likelihood of success. Trees for the Future then empowers these communities to succeed through the use of trees to protect, diversify, and eventually optimize their crop land. The farmers provide the land, labor and water, along with entrepreneurial determination, all while inspiring a sense of community ownership.
Your donation creates a direct impact on the earth and lives of farming people who need assistance to succeed. By helping Trees for the Future plant trees, you can give families the ability to transition from unsustainable farming techniques to a Forest Garden system. Your donation not only sustains and empowers them, but also changes their lives forever.
City Plants: Grow a Greener Los Angeles
Mission: To grow a greener future for Los Angeles by engaging Angelenos to plant and care for trees throughout the city.
City Plants partners with multiple non-profit organizations to plant shade trees throughout L.A. to promote green jobs and advocate for a sustainable Los Angeles. City Plants delivers up to seven water-efficient Yard Trees straight to your door for private property or they will plant the trees for you in the public parkway (between the sidewalk and the street) for homes, businesses, apartments, or schools who qualify for their program.
Planting trees benefits your energy efficiency. If planted to the west and east of a building, trees will provide shade during the hottest parts of the day. That cools the building and lessens the need for air conditioning. Less A/C use will save you energy and money on your electricity bill. Trees are also a great investment as they become more effective at saving energy with age. Using less energy as individuals can help reduce the need to generate energy, which helps combat climate change. If enough people reduce their energy intake, the savings add up.
