EVERY GOAL, 100 TREES PLANTED
For every goal Juventus scores, the team plants 100 trees in projects across the world.
The action of each goal won’t just end on the pitch, as the club makes a new commitment to the environment, to make the world a better place. An ambitious and precious project, which scored over 45,000 trees in the last two seasons.
BREAK A STICK, PLANT A TREE
The San Jose Sharks hav taken on sustainability in a fun way! 100 trees were planted for each broken stick by the Sharks in 2021-22 for a total of 15,125 trees.
The San Jose Sharks also held a tree planting event in April 2022 to engage their staff and community by getting their hands in the dirt!
TOGETHER, BUILDING A FOREST
Building on the success of Major League Soccer’s 2021 campaign that planted 27,000 trees in projects across North America, the league planted an additional 28,000 trees in the US and Canada in 2022 – 1,000 trees for each of Major League Soccer’s 28 teams.
