AZEK® Building Products Gives Back to National Forest Foundation to Honor Earth Day

It feels good to discover an earth-friendly find, and sometimes those products are in the most surprising of places. In honor of Earth Day this year, AZEK® Building Products is celebrating its year-round commitment to sustainability by supporting the National Forest Foundation. The goal - collect $5,000 to plant 5,000 trees. During the month of April, AZEK Building Products will donate one dollar for every Facebook share it receives during its #SHARESFORTREES campaign.

The objective is to reach up to 5,000 shares, or the equivalent of a $5,000 donation to the National Forest Foundation. For each dollar the NFF collects, it plants one tree! “We’re proud to practice sustainable methods in the making of our premium building products. We feel that supporting the National Forest Foundation in honor of Earth Day is the perfect way to give back to an organization we believe in,” said Julia Fitzgerald, CMO of AZEK Building Products. “Most people don’t realize that our engineered decking is a sustainable alternative to wood decks and saves more than 100,000 trees per year.”

Throughout the year, AZEK Building Products demonstrates a strong commitment to sustainability. Its TimberTech® decks are made from up to 73% recycled materials*, and they don’t require harsh chemical staining or sealants. Timbertech also ships its products by rail to save thousands of gallons of fuel annually, and at the TimberTech plant in Wilmington, OH, the manufacturing teams have developed a unique, closed-loop water filtration system. This recycling process saves hundreds of gallons of water each day. Tell us how you are planning to celebrate Earth Day 2017.
