(The Hosting News) – TheSSLstore.com, one of the world’s largest major-brand SSL security certificate providers, is drawing attention to a potential blind-spot in the Japanese tsunami relief efforts. Through its 4Green program and in conjunction with four-star environmental charity The Union of Concerned Scientists, TheSSLstore is collecting donations designated fully toward recovery from the ecological impact of the disaster. The organization is also donating 5% of all sales March 14 through March 18 for this purpose and extending advanced purchase up to 90 days for all SSL products and renewals to encourage greater participation.
Kent Roberts, Director of Global Customer Care for TheSSLstore, states, “The humanitarian disaster in Japan is horrific, and our hearts and prayers go out to all the people affected by this crisis. However, we realized that environmental devastation was not being specifically addressed by charitable contributions, perhaps to a dangerous degree. As we see with the nuclear meltdown, consequences of this event will be more far-reaching if we do not act quickly to alleviate the environmental catastrophe.” Roberts explains that TheSSLstore is consulting with the highly esteemed Union of Concerned Scientists (www.ucsusa.org) to determine how best to distribute the funds rapidly and effectively to ensure that the environmental toll of the tsunami remains as contained as possible. 100% of donations collected by TheSSLstore throughout the week will go toward tsunami environmental relief.
TheSSLstore created the 4Green program early this year to promote itself as a firm taking genuine, substantive steps to “green up” business operations and inspire others businesses and individuals to do the same. The program demonstrates TheSSLstore’s aspirations to legitimately become the most green-friendly Web-based business in the world.
