New Year, New Ways to Give Back: Here's How You Can Make a Difference


It’s a fresh year and a brand-new chance to make a difference. We know you love the Great Outdoors, so here’s just how you can join StorQuest for a Cause to make a real impact on our community, on nature, and even the rest of the planet this year. Keep reading to see more about our StorQuest for a Cause partners.

One Tree Planted

As one of our longest-running partners in the fight to restore and reforest the earth, One Tree Planted is an incredible non-profit organization that plants one tree for every one dollar donated. They’ve done so much already, planting a whopping 40 million trees across 47 countries so far! One Tree Planted works with companies like StorQuest and 266 others to help give back to the environment, create a healthier climate, protect biodiversity, and help reforestation efforts. Just through StorQuest’s "Rent One, Plant One Tree" initiative, we’ve planted 60,000 trees – that’s pretty awesome if you ask us.


This remarkable company goes to great lengths – or shall we say depths – to help restore coastal ecosystems, which are 5-10x more effective at removing carbon from the air than above-water ecosystems (like rainforests). To say SeaTrees takes tree-planting to the next level is an understatement. Their efforts involve planting mangrove trees, restoring kelp forests, coral reefs, seagrass meadows, and conserving coastal watersheds. With donation dollars received so far, they’ve already planted over 2 million seatrees to date!

Project Learning Tree

The future of the world is in the hands of the youth, and at Project Learning Tree, the focus is built around education from preschool age to 12th grade. Project Learning Tree designs education programs built for teachers and other educators, community leaders, and parents to help pass down knowledge about our precious environment. From forest literacy to in-the-field training, this awesome non-profit empowers our youth to make a difference on earth for future years to come.

Your Chance to Make a Difference

When you choose to rent a unit at StorQuest, we donate to these organizations (and so many more!). StorQuest’s partnerships with you and these impressive non-profits means we can make a difference together – one storage unit at a time. The world is an awesome place. Let’s keep it that way in 2023, and beyond!
