Green Bay Packaging Recognized For 50 Years of Support to Trees For Tomorrow

GREEN BAY, WI – December 23, 2014 – Green Bay Packaging recently received Trees For Tomorrow’s
Length of Service Award in recognition of 50 years of outstanding and consistent support in protecting
natural resources and educating people about them.


“It’s difficult to describe the extreme gratitude and thankfulness we feel for Green Bay Packaging’s
support over the past 50 years,” said Libby Dorn, Executive Director of Trees For Tomorrow. “This is
an incredible achievement. We so honor our partnership, and look forward to continued
collaboration as we journey forward into a new and exciting Trees For Tomorrow future supporting
sustainable science-based natural resources education.”
Trees for Tomorrow is an accredited natural resource specialty school in Eagle River, Wis., that
serves students from throughout Wisconsin, northern Illinois and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. The
private, nonprofit school annually reaches more than 10,000 people with its field-based forestry and
conservation courses.
Teacher/naturalists use a combination of field studies and classroom presentations to teach
conservation values, promote awareness, stewardship and renewal practices of natural resources
for future generations to benefit.
Wisconsin timber and paper companies founded Trees For Tomorrow in 1944. Green Bay
Packaging began participating in 1964 when founder George F. Kress joined the school’s Board of
Directors. Green Bay Packaging’s values, inspired by Kress, still serve today as the foundation for the
company.
“Green Bay Packaging is proud to be part of the effort to inspire future generations on sustainable forestry
practices and the importance of natural resource management is to the community,” said Lisa BauerLotto, Director of Environmental and Sustainability Programs, who accepted the award on the company’s
behalf. “Many students encounter first-hand the field exploration of the forest. It’s an awareness and
experience that lasts a lifetime.”
