Strack Transportation

Strack Transportation and LRFF have teamed up to offset the carbon emitted by the transportation company. The original agreement was to plant 9,000 trees in a one year partnership. Strack has continued the partnership and has remained committed to being a green company.

Sol Technologies and their subsidiary Etnies partnered with LRFF to plant 35,000 trees for the Rio Sol Project in conjunction with the Buy a Shoe Plant a Tree Program.
