Accella Tire Fill Systems, a division of Accella Performance Materials, has fulfilled another year in its ongoing dedication to planting new trees in partnership with American Forests, the nation’s oldest non-profit conservation organization. The initiative is part of the company’s industry-leading “One Tote, One Tree” green campaign through which one tree is planted for every tote of Accella’s tire fill product purchased.

Teaming up with its customers, aftermarket dealers and distributors around the world, Accella has planted more than 142,000 new trees to date in order to help restore forests destroyed by natural disasters.

For 2017, Accella’s donation is helping American Forests in its work with the U.S. Forest Service to plant more than 40,000 white bark pines in Shoshone National Forest, which is part of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem in Wyoming.

“Accella Tire Fill Systems continues to prove itself a steadfast partner to American Forests, consistently demonstrating the great role of corporate responsibility and how it helps us accomplish our timely and critical work,” said Lea Sloan, VP of communications, American Forests.

In its 45 year history, Accella has become the industry’s market leader in tire fill solutions by focusing on developing eco-friendly flatproofing alternatives for industrial, construction and mining vehicles, along with other Off-the-Road equipment.

“As a zero waste, zero emission manufacturer, Accella Tire Fill Systems is dedicated to sustainability as a long-term strategic business focus, and partnering with American Forests is a natural extension of that orientation,” noted Joe Negrey, Vice President of Accella Tire Fill Systems. “Our `One Tote, One Tree’ program exemplifies this philosophy by enabling our global network of distributors, OEMs and aftermarket dealers to join the effort to heal damaged fire zones like the Shoshone National Forest. Together, we are illustrating how businesses can turn innovation and sustainability into a winning formula, for the company and for the planet.”
