Capital Brewing Co has partnered with the GIANTS to launch the third year of their Trees For Tomorrow initiative in partnership with Jindabyne-based environmental charity Keep It Cool.
The Trees For Tomorrow initiative has grown from strength to strength over the last two years but this year it will be taken to new levels with the help of the GIANTS and the 'Kick A Goal, Plant A Tree' program.
The 'Kick A Goal, Plant A Tree' program has Capital Brewing Co working hand in hand with the GIANTS, committing to plant a native Australian tree for every goal kicked by the GIANTS’ AFL and AFLW teams throughout the 2023 season.
In addition to this, extra trees will be committed to special milestone moments expected to take place across the season for players and the club.
GIANTS forward Harry Himmelberg endorsed the initiative and said he’ll be trying to hit the scoreboard as many times as possible this season.
“This is a fantastic initiative by Capital Brewing Co who are wonderful partners of our club,” he said.
“The Kick A Goal, Plant A Tree program means we'll plant a native Australian tree for every goal kicked by our teams across the season so you can be sure I'll be trying to kick as many as possible!”
The trees committed throughout the 'Kick A Goal, Plant A Tree' program as part of the Trees for Tomorrow initiative helps draw down carbon and create new habitats for wildlife, reduce soil erosion, and increase biodiversity and the recovery of species under threat such as Eucalyptus Viminalis (Ribbon Gum) which has been subjected to significant dieback in the Snowys.
