Kruger Family Industries Goes Green

February 28, 2024

As a company, Kruger Family Industries (KFI) recognizes the importance of having a presence and giving back to our community. KFI is located in Portage Wisconsin and is one of the few cities that is recognized for being a Tree City. For our latest community involvement effort, we have partnered with the Portage Parks and Recreational Department to donate a tree at a local park.

Why Being a Tree City is Important: 

  • Trees offer many benefits that go beyond their visual appeal. They serve as natural sound absorbers, reducing traffic noise by 40%.
  • By shading buildings, trees play a crucial role in reducing energy costs for homes and businesses, potentially cutting expenses by up to 25%.
  • Access to green spaces has been linked to improved well-being, reduced stress levels, and increased opportunities for outdoor recreation.
  • The act of planting and maintaining trees is a meaningful step towards creating a healthier planet for current and future generations.
