With the U.S. going Gaga over environmentalism, companies aiming to impress liberal-minded customers, global concerns over oil spills, etc. etc., many businesses are attempting to profit on the “green” movement.
But instead of boasting about energy efficienty or organic materials, one Addison, Texas self storage company is going green... literally.
They're planting trees.
In the month of August, Watson & Taylor Self Storage will plant ten trees for every storage unit rented by a new customer. The company hopes to make a positive impact on the negative repercussions of deforestation.

Watson & Taylor Self Storage To Plant 10 Trees For Every New Self Storage Customer That Rents In August
In an effort to rebuild areas impacted by deforestation, Watson & Taylor Self Storage has committed to plant 10 trees for every new self storage customer in the month of August.
The Addison-based self storage company has partnered with Trees for the Future with the goal of planting more than 5,000 trees. Trees will be planted in areas desperately needing reforestation to sustain natural and human needs.
"As the world becomes more aware of our need to be more enviromentally responsible, we felt strongly that our involvement in this program is the right thing to do. Countries like Haiti are suffering enormous consequences due to deforestation and we're certain we can help", said George Watson, Principal of Watson & Taylor Self Storage.
Beginning August 1st, the self storage company will donate 10 trees in the name of each new customer that rents a storage unit. Every new customer that rents a storage unit in the month of August will enjoy the feeling of giving back to those in need.
