Arborjet and Ecologel Solutions LLC, leaders in plant health care solutions and water conservation management, announced they will be an official 2019 Silver sponsor of Project EverGreen’s GreenCare for Troops program. This is a need based program for active-duty deployed service members. In 2018, the program engaged close to 1,500 active volunteers, who helped more than 700 military families maintain their home lawns. Since its inception, more than 11,000 military families and 6,000 contractors have registered for the program.
Ecologel is a natural fit for the program as they are a premier developer and manufacturer of innovative products for water conservation. One of their flagship products, Hydretain is a revolutionary soil moisture management technology that is designed to drastically reduce watering requirements of turfgrasses, trees, shrubs, flowers, indoor and outdoor plants and agricultural plants by as much as 50 percent or more!
As part of this sponsorship, Ecologel has committed to provide free Hydretain products to help maintain the lawns and landscapes of deployed military personnel, while also helping them reduce their water bills. Through GreenCare for Troops, military personnel can request lawn and landscaping services during their period of deployment. Lawn and landscape professionals volunteer to provide those services and once they are matched, volunteers will receive access to coupons for free Hydretain products.
“We are proud to support Project EverGreen as their mission aligns with our philosophy of preserving green spaces, including lawns, trees, parks and communities in a sustainable way. Additionally, our products offer ideal solutions, particularly Hydretain which allows for far less watering to maintain healthy landscapes,” said Ecologel President Rick Irwin. ”We look forward to working with this impactful program, as we strongly believe in supporting our troops. Helping them to maintain their lawns is just one small way we feel we can make a meaningful contribution.”
