In honor of the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day, Louis Vuitton North America, Inc. will donate 10% of all sales purchased on the company’s U.S. website, louisvuitton.com today to Global Green USA (globalgreen.org). The donation to Global Green will support their Green Schools Initiative, focused on greening K-12 schools in several major United States cities including New Orleans and Los Angeles.
“Louis Vuitton is actively committed to promoting environmental responsibility and sustainable development. Over the past several years, we have voluntarily made efforts to reduce the impact of the company’s activities on the environment,” said Daniel Lalonde, President and CEO of Louis Vuitton North America. “We are proud to be able to celebrate Earth Day with a concrete initiative through our support of Global Green, and to encourage a national discussion on climate change.”
“Global Green USA is grateful for Louis Vuitton’s support of our green school initiative on Earth Day,” said President and CEO Matt Petersen. “Today, a majority of students and teachers in the US spend their days in unhealthy schools that waste energy and money while having poor air quality. Every school in every neighborhood in America can and must become healthy, green buildings that create green jobs, save money and inspire our children about innovative solutions to climate change and today’s environmental challenges."
