Yokohama Tire Partnering with California State Parks Foundation
SANTA ANA, CA – (Jan. 29, 2024) – Yokohama Tire has added California State Parks Foundation to its expanding list of environmental-related partnerships. Yokohama is also working with Tread Lightly! and Surfrider North Orange County on several projects to protect and maintain the ecosystem, from the desert to the ocean.
“Yokohama is honored to help California State Parks Foundation and its mission to protect and preserve the California state park system, for the benefit of all,” said Alan Holtschneider, Yokohama’s director of marketing. “They do incredible work and we’re eager to help.”
Yokohama will be supporting California State Parks Foundation via volunteer work and through a special community outreach program where the tiremaker will donate 5% of its total sales from its new, national park-inspired GEOLANDAR merchandise collection.
To begin the partnership, Holtschneider said Yokohama will support California State Parks Foundation at three Malibu-area sites: Point Dume State Beach, Malibu Lagoon State Beach and Will Rogers State Historic Park; and three projects in San Diego: Silver Strand State Beach, Palomar Mountain State Park and Old Town San Diego State Historic Park.
“We are truly grateful to be working with Yokohama Tire Corporation to preserve and protect the state park system through stewardship,” said Rachel Norton, executive director of California State Parks Foundation. “Volunteer stewardship projects like these create real positive impacts in parks, while activating Californians to care for these crucial green open spaces.”
