Ozone Wireless Donates Forty Trees
Bridgetown, November 22, 2017 -Through the FCT Future Trees Initiative, Ozone has donated forty fruit trees allocated between the Lester Vaughan and Deighton Griffith Secondary schools and the Lawrence T. Gay Memorial and Luther Thorne primary schools.
The company is making good on its promise to ensure that there are more green spaces in communities. Head of Marketing at Ozone, Dianne Squires said, We are over the moon that Ozone has been able to make this contribution. As a company, we decided on a corporate social responsibility mandate to enhance the natural environment around us, starting simply by planting more trees. The Future Trees Initiative provided the perfect opportunity, giving us access to a variety of shade and fruit trees. Breadfruit, golden apple, plum and soursop have been planted at these schools and it has been wonderful to get out, meet the students and staff and see them very actively involved in getting these trees in the ground. She added that schools are a perfect choice as many of them are community hubs for sports and other activities, so not only students and staff but also those in the environs around them stand to benefit from the added shade, beauty and of course, fruit. Barney Gibbs, FCT director in charge of tree planting added: “We are fortunate to be able to work with sponsors like Ozone who share our vision for a fruitscaped Barbados. Planting trees that give edible fruit promotes self-reliance. Our hope is that the home economics departments can treat school orchards like living classrooms, to encourage healthy, indigenous diets.”
