Since 2010, Avon Products Inc. and its Foundation have funded The Nature Conservancy's Plant a Billion Trees program in one of the world's most endangered and biodiverse rainforests—the Atlantic Forest in Brazil. Avon has raised more than $4.9 million in countries around the world for Plant a Billion Trees by mobilizing their global sales force to sell Healthy Forests, Beautiful World fundraising products. The Conservancy is honored by Avon's continued support throughout the region to help protect and restore forests, improve water quality for millions of people, and mitigate the effects of climate change.
Harley-Davidson® is supporting reforestation efforts through the Conservancy’s Plant a Billion Trees campaign. With the launch of its Renew the Ride program in 2013, the Harley-Davidson Motor Company and its Harley-Davidson Foundation supported forest restoration in the Atlantic Forest of Brazil. In 2014, Harley-Davidson supported restoration of a longleaf pine forest in southeastern Virginia, where Harley-Davidson riders and corporate leaders worked side by side to place the first 1,000 seedlings in the ground. In addition, Harley-Davidson’s Renew the Ride program is encouraging riders to raise awareness and funding for conservation by participating in rides and other events through their local dealership or Harley Owners Group® chapter. Harley-Davidson has set a goal to raise funds to help plant 50 million trees worldwide by 2025 with the Conservancy.
