Two Italian Entrepreneurs Pledge 2 Million Trees

When Felix and friends finished their presentation in Rome, Felix asked Antonio Rainone, President of Anter, to come to the stage. So far the agreement between Felix and the organizers. Felix then asked the audience to take out pen and business card and write down the amount of trees they want to pledge until 2020 on the back side of the business card.

Felix asked Antonio how many trees he was willing to pledge. In the meantime, there had been already more than 5.000 trees pledged by the audience. Antonio took Felix’ pen and Felix’ business card and wrote a number on the back side. Antonio then called Francesco D’Antini, President of NWG to the stage. Antonio wrote another number on the same card.

When Felix tried to read the pledge, he first could not believe what he saw: A pledge of 2 million trees.
