#KanetixLovesTrees and pledges to raise funds for Tree Canada.

TORONTO, March 30, 2017-With Earth Day just around the corner, Kanetix.ca has pledged to help drivers reduce their carbon footprint during the month of April. Every time a car insurance shopper gets a quote and calls Kanetix.ca to secure their rate a donation will be made to Tree Canada, a not-for-profit charitable organization. The donation for each call will equal the money needed to plant and maintain a tree.

The donation program is open to Canadian motorists in Ontario, Alberta, Quebec, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and New Brunswick; everywhere Kanetix.ca is able to help drivers save on their car insurance through their quote comparison service.

"We want to help offset the impact driving has on the environment, and we are thrilled to be raising funds for Tree Canada to achieve this end," said Janine White, Vice-President of Marketplaces for Kanetix.ca. "Trees naturally absorb carbon dioxide, one of the greenhouse gases released when we drive, and our goal is to give customers the opportunity to reduce their carbon footprint all the while saving money on their auto insurance."

#KanetixLovesTrees officially launches on March 30, 2017 and will continue throughout the entire month of April in celebration of Earth Day, which falls on April 22. For every customer who compares quotes and calls Kanetix.ca to secure their rate, Kanetix.ca will make a donation to Tree Canada, up to a maximum of $5,000 at the close of the campaign.

Planting trees is just one way we can green our commute. View the Kanetix.ca infographic that illustrates some of the other everyday ways we can drive change and minimize our impact on the environment.
