As a leading self-storage provider, StorQuest®Self Storage is dedicated to preserving the planet we call home. They do this by partnering with a range of nonprofits, including One Tree Planted!
By planting a tree for every storage unit rented, they have planted over 142,705 trees to date in the communities they serve. We recently connected with Aubree Plodinec, Community Manager at StorQuest, to learn more about this awesome brand and their commitment to sustainability.
CAN YOU TELL US EXACTLY WHAT STORQUEST DOES?
StorQuest owns, manages and operates a thriving network of modern and innovative self storage properties across the United States. We currently have 310+ locations in 23 states.
WHAT IS STORQUEST’S MISSION AND VISION?
Our mission is simple: Get out there, discover, help others and lead a more Awesome life. We believe that self-storage can play a positive and empowering role in people’s lives. And that when you make room in your life for what matters, amazing things can happen. We want people to think differently about their personal belongings, and what they might do if only they had the space, the time, and the little nudge of encouragement they needed. Plus, we are here to ensure those personal items are kept safe with us.
WHEN DID STORQUEST BEGIN WORKING WITH ONE TREE PLANTED, AND WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO SUPPORT A TREE PLANTING ORGANIZATION?
We began working with One Tree Planted in 2019. We chose to partner with One Tree Planted for a number of reasons, but mainly because we felt their organization aligned perfectly with our values and beliefs. The executive leadership team at StorQuest takes our environmental impact seriously, and we are always looking for ways to protect the health and well-being of the environment and the communities we operate in.
HOW DOES WORKING WITH ONE TREE PLANTED HELP YOU ACHIEVE YOUR SUSTAINABILITY GOALS?
One Tree Planted does amazing work in the U.S. and abroad, and they help us fulfill the responsibility we put on ourselves to help combat climate change. We understand the importance of making the world a greener place, and we're proud to say that our partnership with One Tree Planted has resulted in 140,000+ new trees and counting.
ASIDE FROM PLANTING TREES, HOW DOES STORQUEST STRIVE TO BECOME MORE SUSTAINABLE, NOW AND IN THE FUTURE?
Aside from planting trees, StorQuest has extensive plans for sustainability. Our parent company, The William Warren Group, has a cross-functionally supported Environment, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) committee, and we'll be publishing our inaugural ESG Impact Report in the near future. This report will share our strategy on everything from decarbonization and solar energy, to resource efficiency and rainwater harvesting. We highly recommend checking back into our website to learn more about our efforts!
