Oregon Craft Beverage Makers Collaborate to Help Restore the State’s Forests

You Buy One, We Plant One campaign donates $1 from every purchase to plant one tree
Portland, Ore. – Once again, four leading Oregon craft beverage producers are teaming up with Oregon Parks Forever to raise funds to replant 25,000 trees in Oregon’s parks and forests.
Between record breaking fires caused by a freak windstorm to an extreme heat event that set the stage for another bad fire year, Oregon has seen unusually severe tree damage the past two years.
As we embark on summer activities, fire officials are warning that we are heading for another challenging fire season this summer.
So, once again, sustainability-minded craft beverage producers Canned Oregon by Stoller Wine Group, Fort George Brewery, Portland Cider Company, and Sunriver Brewing are collaborating to help Oregon Parks Forever’s effort to replant one million trees so that Oregon’s forests will once again be green and lush for future generations.
For all of July and August, at all Oregon retailers, $1 from select 6-pack of cans of Sunriver Brewing and Fort George beer, Portland Cider Company cider, and 375mL cans of Canned Oregon wine by Stoller Wine Group sold will be donated to Oregon Parks Forever as part of their tree replanting campaign. Each dollar collected will cover the cost of planting one tree. You buy one. We plant one.
“We are thrilled to have the continuing support of these fine craft beverage producers toward this important project. With the help of these fine craft beverage makers, and many others, we were able to fund the planting of over a half a million trees last year. Trees provide the very necessities of life,” said Seth Miller, Oregon Parks Forever executive director. “They clear our air, protect our drinking water, create healthy communities and feed our souls. Our forests provide critical wildlife habitat, natural beauty, and recreational opportunities. They sequester carbon and help reduce soil erosion by stabilizing slopes and preventing landslides.”
Oregon Parks Forever has set a goal of planting at least a million trees. So far, they have funded the replanting of more than half a million trees! You can support their efforts by donating directly, or buying the participating products from these craft beverage producers at your local retailer this summer.
