A Sweeping New Initiative to Promote Forestation and Environmental Protection
In a stunning and incredibly profound move, Market Taiwan — the Taiwanese branch of the global product brokerage and internet marketing leader, Market America — has partnered with the country’s Forestry Bureau to launch the “Million Trees Project”. Under this new initiative, Market Taiwan donated a total of NT$10 million to aid the forestation of 26 hectares of public forest land, spread across 14 public forests throughout Wen-shan, Pu-li, Luan-ta, Shui-li County, Chung-liao and Yu-chi County. The project will see Market Taiwan helping to plant 45,000 trees, each of which is native to Taiwan. These include beech, acacia, evergreen ash, ring-cupped oak, Sakaki, red machilus, and Formosan gum.
“Our business isn’t just about helping people build a successful UnFranchise Business; it’s about making a difference on a global scale and helping build a better future for everyone,” says JR Ridinger, Founder, Chairman & CEO of Market America | SHOP.COM Worldwide. “We normally think of this in terms of helping build a new economy of the future, which helps people create a residual income — but there are many other ways we can make a difference as a company.”
For more than 25 years, Market America has had a resounding impact on the lives of countless individuals. Its global community has empowered tens of thousands of people to transform their lives with their own UnFranchise Businesses — supporting them through infrastructure, networking and marketing to attain financial freedom as prosperous entrepreneurs. As the company has grown, it has continued to make a difference in people’s lives in new and meaningful ways. Beyond building better lives for the UnFranchise Business family, Market America has sought to build a better world for future generations, and there are few ways to do this that are more effective than giving back to the environment.
“We hope that with the efforts from both public and private sectors, the [Million Trees] program will create a diverse ecosystem in these areas, increase forests’ ability to combat climate changes and raise awareness of the benefits of forestation and carbon footprint reduction,” said Claire Ni, Market Taiwan General Manager. This is just the latest in Market America’s longstanding history of corporate responsibility — one of the myriad ways the company seeks to make the world a better place than it was when JR Ridinger founded the company almost 28 years ago.
