Tabs for Trees – a program to benefit the Arbor Day Foundation


Do you like trees? Stupid question, eh? Who doesn’t like trees? Rainier Beer is once again stepping up to raise funds for the Arbor Day Foundation with its Tabs for Trees fundraising campaign. If you find yourself drinking a Rainier Beer in the near future, you’ll notice the red tab on the can. Collect those red tabs and return them to Rainier Beer and they’ll make a donation to the Arbor Day Foundation. That’s the short version.

Here is the press release about the program, including information on how to return your tabs.

Tabs for Trees 2019:

Rainier and the Arbor Day Foundation Issue “Last Call” For Annual Tree Planting Drive

With one month left to participate, Rainier is putting the call out across Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana to help achieve this year’s goal by the end of March.

SEATTLE – March 6, 2019 – In what has become an honored annual tradition, Rainier Beer is again partnering with the Arbor Day Foundation and local environmental stewardship groups on its fifth annual Tabs for Trees campaign. Since 2014, Rainier has planted more than 100,000 trees across the Pacific Northwest as part of Tabs for Trees. This year, Rainier’s goal is to plant an additional 20,000 trees – 5,000 each across Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana.

Through the end of March, Rainier Beer cans feature a special red Tabs for Trees tab. Lovers of the outdoors and beer are invited to support Tabs for Trees by collecting the red tabs and turning them in at one of over 200 participating bars and restaurants across the region.

“Caring for the environment and the communities in the Northwest is central to Rainier’s culture and true to our brand,” said Rainier Brewing Company’s Brand Manager Michael Scott. “The Tabs for Trees program provides a special opportunity for us to make a positive impact on the health and future of our forests while sharing the experience with our employees, our loyal customers as well as newcomers to the region we call home.”

For every 24 tabs collected (the number of cans in a case of beer) and returned to Rainier, one tree will be planted to help sustain the forests of the Pacific Northwest.

“We salute Rainier and their stewardship of America’s forests,” said Dan Lambe, president, Arbor Day Foundation. “Because of their Tabs for Trees initiative and the trees planted the air and water in the Pacific Northwest will be cleaner and natural wildlife habitat will be restored.”

If participants can’t make it out to their local pub before the end of the month, the special tabs can also be mailed to the following address (postmarked no later than March 31, 2019):
