In honor of Earth Day, we made planting trees easier Green of Detroit special logo

Happy Earth Day, friends!

In honor of this important day, we recently swapped our appliance and outdoor power equipment repair tools for shovels.

Last Saturday, dozens of team members gathered to help make planting trees easier for an extraordinary organization that’s restoring the greenness of Detroit.

It was 35 degrees outside, hailing and snowing (yes, on April 13th!) but employees were all smiles while digging holes and planting 70 trees in a Detroit neighborhood.

Over the last several decades, the city of Detroit has lost thousands of trees to due disease and urban expansion. Since its establishment in 1989, The Greening of Detroit™ has planted thousands of trees in the city.’s participation in this event was led by RepairClinic Outreach, a group of employees dedicated to making a positive impact, locally and nationally. Every year, RepairClinic Outreach supports several non-profit organizations through volunteerism and fundraising.

“We care,” said Janice Eaton, a Customer Care rep for “That’s the thing about RepairClinic employees: we really care.”

Currently, the group is fundraising for its Relay for Life® team to benefit the American Cancer Society®. Next weekend, the group will help improve the homes of local elderly or disabled community members by repairing appliances and major home repair projects.

The Greening of Detroit is a well-established, nonprofit resource agency that partners with federal, state and local agencies, corporations and foundations to assist neighborhood groups, churches and schools in their efforts to improve the ecosystem in Detroit through tree planting projects, environmental education, urban agriculture, open space reclamation, vacant land management, and workforce development programs.

    un saludo muy caluroso desde nuestro pequeño país el Salvador, deseándoles lo mejor en sus vidas personales como familiares y amistades que les rodean.
    Soy una persona que trabajo por mi cuenta,si estuviera en los Estados Unidos podría decir que tengo una compañía,de servicios y reparaciones de electrodomésticos e reparaciones eléctricas y fontanería. Hace algún tiempo consulte con ustedes una herramienta,” llave inglesa,que sirve para desmontar la canasta de lavadoras, como de tres o cuatro marcas,mi petición era saber si la podían enviar,pero su respuesta fue que solo envían dentro de los Estados Unidos.Lastima por mi porque esa herramienta sería de gran importancia en mis manos.Que Dios les siga bendiciendo como lo ha hecho hasta el día de hoy (Y)

      Antonio Elias Mejía,
      Buen día, Por adora nosotros solo enviamos partes dentro de los Estados Unidos y Canadá. Si usted tiene familia o amigos en Los Estados Unidos (EEUU), nosotros podemos enviar a ellos y ellos así a usted. También ay compañías que usted puede contratar (los Estados Unidos) para que nosotros enviemos a ellos y ellos se encargarían a enviar a su país. Solo le queríamos dar otras opciones si en verdad necesita partes de nosotros. Que Dios lo bendiga.
