“It is important to us as a company, to our employees as individuals, and to me personally that we make an attempt to help the environment in some small way. We feel that bringing attention to Earth Day and Arbor Day can help remind people that there are things we can all do,” said Patrick Cunningham, President of Blue Marble. “The Arbor Day Foundation is a great cause because they have a simple message. Beyond donating money, we want to remind folks to consider planting a tree this spring.”
