One Tree

Our Plant a Tree Campaign

Join us in our plant a tree initiative.

We’re committed to sustainability and reducing our long term environmental impact and we want you to participate too! We’ll have various promotions throughout the year where we will plant trees for clients who participate in our promotions.

Plant for the Planet

To start off the 2020 year, we planted one tree for every order in February for a total of 1,921 trees planted!

Help us continue our campaign. For every $1,000 you spend with us in March we will plant one tree!

Your Carbon Footprint

A tree can absorb 48 pounds of carbon dioxide per year and can sequester 1 ton of carbon dioxide by the time it reaches 40 years old. The average household emits about 24 tons of CO2 per year. 220 trees are needed to offset this so join us in planting for the planet!

Carbon Neutral

In 2010, Polar Promotions & Sportswear made the commitment to become a completely carbon neutral company. One of our major initiatives for sustainability in Ontario is our partnership with OPA (Ontario Power Authority) and the FIT Program. Polar Promotions & Sportswear has made a $700,000 capital investment to install solar panels on the roof of our Markham distribution center in 2010. We have made a 20 year agreement with OPA to provide back to the grid over 135,000KW of energy per year.

OUR SOLAR PANELS

Our 135 kilowatt system comprises of 548 individual 245 watt Poly Crystalline Solar Photovoltaic panels.

Energy

One kilowatt hour equals the amount of electricity required to burn a 100 watt light bulb for 10 hours. The energy produced from our solar panels in one month can power that light bulb for 8,500 days or 23 years.

Prevention

A one kilowatt home solar system will prevent approximately 3,600 pounds of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere annually. Our solar system saves 150,000 pounds of Carbon emissions annually.

Power

An average household uses approximately 900 kilowatt hours per month. Our system has enough energy to deliver power to 23 homes each month
