One tree for ten people

There is a challenge every year for the friends of the environment in Bucharest Airports Company. Our long-term strategy made us initiate an air refreshing contest. In one year, a mature leafy tree produces as much oxygen as ten people breathe. If so, how much oxygen would we provide by planting 100 shrubs?

In order to solve this simple eco-arithmetic exercise, we initiated the competition "The best home for CNAB trees". All our environment lovers had to do was to write a few lines persuading us that they will be the best foster parents for the seedlings plants.

We received many unexpectedly inspired letters, one greener than the other so that each tree got a loving home, and CNAB CSR programme "Friends of the Airport – Friends of the Environment" recorded one more important succcess.
