ZOLEO INC. PARTNERS WITH GLOBAL REFORESTATION NON-PROFIT ONE TREE PLANTED

Beginning January 1, 2022, ZOLEO will have one tree planted for every new subscription activated.

TORONTO, Canada, January 25, 2022 --ZOLEO Inc., an award-winning global messaging solutions company, today announced its partnership with One Tree Planted. The new alliance will allow the telecommunications company to directly support reforestation efforts for each region in which they operate.

“At ZOLEO, the outdoors is at the core of our community. From the North American Rockies to the Australian Outback, our users travel the globe with their ZOLEOs in tow to stay connected with friends and family as they discover the beauty of nature,” explained Morris Shawn, President of ZOLEO Inc. and Roadpost Inc. “As we embark on our mission to keep people safe while traveling off the grid, it only makes sense to give back to the planet we’re lucky to explore.” The partnership is designed to be simple for customers to get involved in global reforestation. For every ZOLEO subscription activation, the company will donate US$1 to One Tree Planted to pay for the cost of planting a new tree. The trees are planted by local partner organizations and community volunteers in areas where there has been deforestation and disaster.

“Reforestation is a cause that is close to our hearts. After experiencing the tragic Australian bushfires in 2020 — one of the worst wildfire disasters in modern history — supporting the regrowth of our precious forests means a lot to our organization,” said Michael Capocchi, Vice President of ZOLEO Inc. and Managing Director of Beam.

Through its support for One Tree Planted programs in each of its subscriber regions, ZOLEO hopes to directly benefit the communities it serves. In the United States, its support for the National Forests program will help create habitat for America's iconic biodiversity, reforest public land, and preserve landscapes with historical and cultural value. In Canada, it will help restore and expand forests, recover areas affected by large-scale wildfires, protect critical watersheds and rebuild habitats for wildlife, and will ultimately combat climate change and global warming. In Australia, it will help to create habitat corridors for Koalas, promote biodiversity and restore areas affected by bushfires. And, in New Zealand, restore the island’s indigenous forests and create habitat for wildlife, prevent erosion and protect local watersheds.

"We're proud to work with partners like ZOLEO who are passionate about preserving the great outdoors while also considering safety. The reforestation projects supported by the use of these devices will create a lasting environmental benefit for the health of our forests,” said Diana Chaplin, Canopy Director at One Tree Planted.
