See High Resolution Image

Cleveland, Ohio, February 2, 2012 – After more than 40 years of combating pollution in the manufacturing world, Abanaki Corporation has emerged as the world leader in oil skimming solutions. While constantly searching for more effective technologies in oil skimming, Abanaki also adheres to its motto “Clean Our World™.” Keeping in step with that philosophy, the company continues to find improved oil skimming solutions while maintaining the environment’s best interests as a top priority.

To continue its efforts to “Clean Our World” Abanaki teamed up with the non-profit organization American Forests and its Global ReLeaf Program. For each oil skimmer sold during February, Abanaki will donate a portion of each sale to plant a tree. Since 1875, American Forests has been educating the masses on how to protect and restore rural and urban forests. The main goal of the Global ReLeaf program is to plant native trees in the United States and abroad in order to help restore ecosystems that have been damaged both by nature and man. Thus far, American Forests has planted nearly 40 million trees through the Global ReLeaf program in more than 600 projects. The result of these projects and newly planted trees is cleaner air and drinking water, restored habitat for wildlife, and the removal of millions of tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

According to Tom Hobson, president of Abanaki, “Abanaki has always considered itself a steward of the environment, and planting trees is one of the ways we can help clean our world.”
