Nature Flooring is launching its environmental initiative by planting trees in Washington, D.C.'s Wangari Gardens community garden park, Saturday, May 16 at 10 a.m.
Wangari Gardens, founded in 2012, are named after Laureate Wangari Maathai of Kenya, professor and Nobel Peace Prize winner. As founder of the Greenbelt Movement, Wangari called for the conservation of the environment for a greener, cleaner world.
The trees are the latest addition to the Wangari Gardens' effort to create a green oasis at the crossroads of Irving Street, Kenyon Street and Park Place Northeast in urban Washington, D.C. The park boasts a community garden, a 50 fruit tree forest garden, public vegetable garden, herb garden, medicinal garden, berry garden, strawberry patch, outdoor classroom and a public hammock.
According to the company, Nature Flooring is committed to sustainable development and forest protection. Its parent company, Nature Home of China—now celebrating its 20th anniversary—has planted more than 20 pieces of ecological forests in China and Peru.
Nature Home serves as the zero-carbon partner of Milano Expo, and core member of the World Wildlife Fund's Global Forest & Trade Network. According to the company, All Nature Flooring products are responsibly harvested to ensure they are legally sourced and logged and comply with formaldehyde emission standards set forth by the SGS Consumer Testing Services/California Air Resources Board. Nature Flooring meets standards set by the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification.
"We look forward to celebrating our social responsibility for sustaining our world at the Wangari Garden event," said Raymond Zhu, CEO for international operation at Nature Home.
