spruce up the planet for earth day

reserve now

Whether you’re headed out for a hike, volunteering in your community, or simply getting off campus this Earth Day, you can give back to Mother Nature. Just book a Ford Zipcar from April 9–23 and for each trip, we’ll plant a tree in your honor.

It’s all happening through Zipcar and Ford’s second annual partnership with One Tree Planted. Together, we’re committed to fostering sustainable lifestyles in cities—and beyond. And by opting for car sharing over personal vehicle use, you’re making an impact, too.

trees, please

Trees are a vital natural resource. Here are just a few ways they contribute to a healthier, happier planet.

Trees remove carbon from the atmosphere, reduce greenhouse gas effects, and provide us with fresh, clean air to breathe. (Triple threat!)

biodiversity icon

Bambi's not alone. Forests house over 80% of the world's land-based plants and animals.

health

1 out of 4 medicines are derived from trees or plants. (An apple a day really does keep the doctor away...)

Money doesn't grow on trees...but over 1.6 billion people are partially reliant on forests for their daily livelihood.
