Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy Seeks Help to 'Releaf' Buffalo
Environment

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The 2006 October Storm destroyed 33,000 trees in our Olmsted Parks. One vote on line per day at the Pepsi Refresh Project website can help the Conservancy win $50,000 to plant 1,000 trees over the next year. 

Just go to www.refresheverything.com/releafbuffalo or text 102378 to PEPSI (73774) to vote today and every day in the month of September. 

Your votes help Buffalo now, and for the future. A single mature tree can absorb carbon dioxide at a rate of 48 lbs. per year and release enough oxygen back into the atmosphere to support two human beings.  

The Pepsi Refresh Project will award more than $20 million in 2010 to move communities forward. Individuals can apply for grants to benefit a variety of projects and site visitors can vote for the best ideas for funding.  Pepsi is funding projects that make a difference in six categories: Health, Arts & Culture, Food & Shelter, The Planet, Neighborhoods, and Education. 

The Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy is in the running for a grant of $50,000 (in The Planet category) to plant 1,000 trees over the next year.
