Proceeds from Sprint’s award-winning Samsung Reclaim™ sales benefit Adopt an Acre land conservation program
Sprint has contributed $500,000 to The Nature Conservancy’s U.S. Adopt an Acre program to support the conservation of millions acres of public and private land. For each purchase of a Samsung Reclaim™ from Aug. 16, 2009 through Dec. 31, 2009, Sprint gave $2 of each sale to the Nature Conservancy’s program. The contribution amount equals Sprint’s maximum commitment of $500,000.
David Owens, vice president of marketing for Sprint
“As a leading U.S. green telecommunications company, Sprint is committed to supporting sustainability through our products, services and partnerships.”
“The overwhelming success of the Samsung Reclaim proves that customers want to make environmentally-friendly purchasing decisions, and do not need to sacrifice the latest in wireless technology to do so. We thank our customers for embracing the Samsung Reclaim and are pleased to contribute $500,000 to the Nature Conservancy.”
Mark Tercek, president and CEO of The Nature Conservancy
“Sprint has been an exceptional partner and these funds will help us protect and restore some of the world’s most ecologically- important landscapes.”
“We want to thank Sprint and Samsung for their commitment to sustainability and for support of all the Conservancy’s work to protect the natural systems that sustain us all.”
