Promega GoTaq® Goes Green with Latest Hot Start Offer
MADISON, WISCONSIN (March 5, 2009)
Promega Corporation, a global leader in DNA and RNA Analysis, will plant a tree for each GoTaq® Hot Start product purchased through May 31st. This green initiative is designed to compliment the mission of life scientists around the world - to improve the lives of others now and for generations to come. The benefits of planting trees bring a long lasting impact much like the work and discoveries of scientists all around the world.
Appreciating the benefits of even one tree on cleaner air, Promega wants to enable the planting of thousands of trees around the world that will have a positive impact for decades. With support of an international, nonprofit environmental organization, scientists can make a difference right now just with their work.
In addition to planting new trees, we are ensuring saving existing ones by having all the communications for the GoTaq® Go Green campaign being resource-sensitive and based on electronic media rather than paper resources. Progress on number of trees planted can be monitored at the "amplify trees" web site www.gotaqgreen.com
