Planting 450,000 trees through crowdsourcing

The Plant a Tree Program partnered Odwalla with all 50 state parks through the America’s State Park initiative. Consumers were invited to “plant” a tree in the state park system of their choice by visiting a custom website to “vote” and view video content submitted by each state. Each vote resulted in $1 dollar donated by Odwalla toward the purchase of trees for state parks. State parks also handed out Odwalla Bars to park visitors to provide a healthy snack at the ‘point of play’.
