Plant Trees for People and the Planet – Happy National Arbor Day!

Apr 29, 2022 | Evanesce News

Join us in celebrating the 150th anniversary of Arbor Day!

Trees are essential to life and our future – an acre of trees produces enough breathing oxygen for 18 people every day. They absorb carbon dioxide and other dangerous gases and, in turn, replenish the atmosphere with oxygen. They also conserve precious water and prevent soil erosion.

At Evanesce, we are passionate about saving trees and providing single-use serviceware and packaging solutions that are manufactured using materials that would otherwise be wasted such as potato starch and cornstarch, instead of valuable trees.

Arbor Day is the tree planters holiday and was officially proclaimed in 1874 by Nebraska’s Governor, Robert W. Furnas, and the day was observed April 10 that year. In 1885, Arbor Day was named a legal state holiday in Nebraska, and April 22 was selected as the date for its permanent annual observance.

By 1920, more than 45 states and territories were celebrating Arbor Day. And the tree planting tradition became prominent in schools across the nation in 1882, with schoolchildren learning about the importance of trees as well as receiving a tree to plant in their own yard.

Today Arbor Day is celebrated in all 50 states. The most common date for the state observance is the last Friday in April — National Arbor Day — but a number of state Arbor Days are at other times to coincide with the best tree planting weather, from January and February in the south to May in the far north.

The Evanesce team is participating in Arbor Day across the country, join us!
