Rokform plants over 50,000 trees through American Forests!

In 2012, Rokform announced a partnership with American Forests supporting the American Forests Global ReLeaf program. Since then, we have planted over 50,000 trees in areas of crucial need. This accomplishment could not have been possible without the help from our loyal customers. A portion of sales from every mountable case goes toward supporting American Forest’s efforts.

“Rokform cases have been protecting smartphones against the environment and its potential hazards, and now it’s time to do our part to start protecting the environment as well,” says Vice President, Jeff Whitten. “Working with American Forests is a great way for us to make an impact.”

These projects have restored forest ecosystems for myriad critical issues, including wildlife habitat improvement, responses to wildfire and other threats, water resource protection and carbon offsets benefits. Through local partnerships, American Forests is able to involve individuals, organizations, agencies and corporations in tree planting projects that restore local and global ecosystems.
