Clogger, a New Zealand-based manufacturer of clothing and gear for arborists, is releasing limited editions of its Pink Zero chain-saw pants, along with an Orange version, to support its Next Generation Fund. These two versions are available for the month of July through resellers as well as on Clogger’s website. Clogger is pooling $30 (NZD) for each pair of limited-edition pants sold to support the gift of Clogger chain-saw gear to students and arborists who have just started in the industry.
“In tough times, Clogger and their retail partners are looking to give the next generation the right protective gear to start their career in safety and comfort,” says Aliénor Diack, Clogger marketing manager, adding that the company ran a similar campaign in 2018.
Students and first-year arborists in New Zealand, Australia, the U.S. and Canada are encouraged to apply through Clogger’s social-media accounts and its blog, accessible at https://blog.goclogger.com/.
Applications close July 31, 2020. Selected applicants will be announced in early August.
“The fund finances a limited number of free pairs of PPE to students or anyone who recently joined the industry,” says Diack. “The aim of this fund is to support people who are joining the tree care industry, so they can be comfortable and safe at work. With the current situation, we thought it would be a great way to help, too!”
