October 18, 2010

OMAHA, Neb., Oct. 18 /PRNewswire/ — Hayneedle.com, the Omaha-based, leading online retailer of home furnishings and lifestyle products, announced today the launch of its holiday campaign, Buy a Tree Today & We’ll Plant One for Tomorrow, featuring a partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation to further their mission and truly celebrate trees this holiday season.

For every Christmas tree purchased on Hayneedle.com between October 15th and December 25th, a live tree will be planted in the nation’s forests by the Arbor Day Foundation. When consumers choose to celebrate the holidays with one of the hundreds of trees available at Hayneedle.com, they will be helping to plant a live tree in our nation’s forests that have been damaged by wildfires, insects and disease. Hayneedle.com hopes to plant 15,000 new trees by sponsoring a live tree for every Christmas tree sold this season.

“Hayneedle.com is demonstrating how companies can make a positive impact on our world by planting trees,” said Tiffany Thompson, Corporate Partner Manager at the Arbor Day Foundation. “The trees planted by Hayneedle.com will help clean the air we breathe, clean drinking water for millions of Americans and will provide habitat for countless wildlife species.”

Hayneedle.com boasts one of the largest selections of artificial trees, whether it’s pre-lit, frosted, fiber optic, or just a classic full faux pine. And with more than 200 online retail and specialty stores, Hayneedle.com offers its customers a true variety to help them find everything needed to trim the tree, deck the halls, and prepare for their homes for the holidays.

“Nothing puts you in the holiday spirit more than giving, so we are thrilled and honored to have the opportunity to give to our nation’s forests,” said Jason Goldberger, Hayneedle Chief Merchandising Officer. “It’s wonderful to know that by decorating with a reusable, artificial Christmas tree in our homes each holiday, we can celebrate nature by planting and nurturing live trees for all to enjoy for many years to come.”
