NASSAU, The Bahamas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Steiner Leisure Limited (NASDAQ:STNR) has committed to supporting international Earth Day on 22nd April, through its promotion SEED (Steiner Evergreen Earth Drive) by planting a tree (donation of $1) for every client who experiences a treatment at one of our spas (for a full list of spas visit www.timetospa.com/earthday) or who makes a purchase through www.timetospa.com or www.timetospa.co.uk on this day(1).
“This is the first time we are launching a company-wide global effort to help raise eco-awareness. We are very excited to be participating in Earth Day and hope that all our customers will respond positively to this promotion,” Leonard Fluxman, President and CEO of Steiner Leisure Limited said.
Steiner Leisure Limited aims to raise donations for the Arbor Day Foundation, which is the world's largest tree-planting organization www.arborday.org. The trees planted through this effort will provide economic and environmental benefits over their lifetimes.

They will clean the air we breathe, control soil erosion, provide food and habitat for wildlife and add beauty to the landscape.
Kevin Sander, Director of Corporate Partnerships for the Arbor Day Foundation states, “Steiner Leisure Limited’s commitment to planting trees will benefit this and future generations. Their pledge to environmental stewardship is admirable and should be emulated by other businesses.”
