SiteGround Goes Green

A lot has been said about global warming and “going green”. Our team has always been enthusiastic about reducing pollution, saving energy and water, but we always felt that’s not enough. So, we decided to try a more effective, down-to-earth, hands-on approach to doing something good for our planet. This weekend the SiteGround team planted over 400 trees and cleaned the surrounding area.

There were more than 50 of us - SiteGround employees, friends, kids and a dog. Our task was to plant willows along a riverbank. Willows help both the local eco balance and prevents collapsing of the riverbank. We also cleaned up the waste from the area. It was exhausting, it was cold and muddy, and it was great fun!

We trooped up in front of the entrance of a big cave and the local ranger briefed us how to use a shovel to dig a hole, how to plant a sapling, how to mold and water it. Then, we separated into groups and went to the spots where the actual work and fun began.

Some were lucky to be planting on nice and easy-to-dig earth and planted their saplings in no time. Others got spots where the riverbank was stony and the soil was very hard. One of the groups had to cross the river bare-footed to reach their sites.

The guys dug enthusiastically their first few holes, but then the passion started to fade and it was time to take the beer out of the trunks to keep us going! The girls did the planting and watered the newly-planted trees with water from the river. After lunch we regrouped and those who were done with their spots went to help those who picked up the short stick with the stony soil.

It was a hard day's work that ended sooner than expected due to the pouring rain. Yet, we were quite proud with the result. We got home wet, exhausted, yet happy. And we immediately started planning when to do it again!

For us, that was just one small step for helping our planet. We are going to keep up with the green initiatives and think of ways of involving our customers and friends as well!
