8,000 Trees to Celebrate 8,000 Deployments

Open Systems recently hit a major milestone with our 8,000th service deployment and my team knew it was time to celebrate.

We have traditionally celebrated each time we’ve reached the thousand mark, and this time was no different. However, we chose a different way to celebrate this milestone as the events of 2020 made us think about global needs rather than feasting on beer, pizza, raclette, etc.

We chose to plant trees – 8,000 of them – to fight climate change.

Reducing the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is vital to combatting climate change and a single tree can capture and contain as much as 50 pounds of carbon per year. This means our 8,000 trees can sequester up to 400,000 pounds of carbon each and every year, year after year.

That’s a lot of carbon we’ll be keeping out of the atmosphere.

No, we didn’t plant the trees ourselves, despite several on the team wanting to do so. We found the perfect partner in Carbonfund.org, a non-profit organization that funds reforestation and renewable energy projects worldwide to fight climate change.

Working with them was easy and straightforward, and it’s comforting to know that our donation is being well spent.

We’re already planning to do more with Carbonfund.org and I hope to share the details with you soon. In the meantime, please check them out to see how you can help their efforts.

I’m glad we could make a difference and I hope that you will too. It’s a good feeling, trust me!
