Mito Celebrates 18th Anniversary with Tree Planting

To celebrate its 18th anniversary which falls on Chinese Arbor day, Mito organized a tree planting activity with the theme of “Build a Green Mito and Create a New Era.”

Arbor Day (植树节) is celebrated on March 12, 2021.

For 18 years, Mito continues to be involved in the remanufacturing of color cartridges which is an environmentally friendly industry. Management considered it was also appropriate for the environmentally-conscious company to take an active role on Arbor Day which also coincided with the company’s anniversary.

Mito senior management and delegates from Zhuhai local Party working committee, Party branch and labour union participated in the activity at Mito park. A spokesman told RT Media the tree-planting activity not only added a beautiful landscape to Mito park but also implemented Mito’s environmental protection concept with practical actions.

General manager Wendy Duan said, “Today is a special day for Mito. We planted nearly 70 trees in the park together. These saplings will not only beautify our working environment but also accompany Mito to grow and develop. I wish 18-year-old Mito a brighter future.”

“Mito will stand at a new starting point, creating new dreams and hopes. In the future, Mito will adhere to the concept of high professionalism and product innovation, integrate environmental protection into its corporate culture, and turn “energy saving and emission reduction” into practical actions. We will work together with customers all over the world to enhance the development of remanufacturing toner cartridges, and make tangible contributions to the sustainable development of the low-carbon economy,” Wendy added.

Arbor Day (植树节) in China was founded by the forester Ling Daoyang in 1915. From 1916 to 1928, Arbor Day was celebrated on the Chinese Qingming Festival, which is on the first day of the fifth solar term of the traditional Chinese lunisolar calendar. In 1929, the date for Arbor Day was changed to March 12 to commemorate Sun Yat-sen. In 1979, the fourth session of the Fifth National People’s Congress of the People’s Republic of China adopted the Resolution on the Unfolding of a Nationwide Voluntary Tree-planting Campaign. This resolution established Arbor Day and stipulated that every able-bodied citizen between the ages of 11 and 60 should plant three to five trees per year or do the equivalent amount of work in seedling, cultivation, tree tending, or other services. Supporting documentation instructs all units to report population statistics to the local afforestation committees for workload allocation. Many couples choose to marry the day before the annual celebration, and they plant the tree to mark the beginning of their life together and the new life of the tree.
