The William Warren Group, Inc. (WWG) owns and operates a thriving network of modern, innovative self storage properties across the United States. Under the trade name StorQuest Self Storage, WWG focuses on delivering the highest-quality storage solutions backed by the best service in the industry, at an affordable price for all customers.
Having always given back to the communities they serve, this year WWG committed to a greener tomorrow. This goes beyond the hiking, biking and surfing adventures embraced by the brand, as they became committed stewards of our planet and earned their green business certification at their HQ in Santa Monica. Being able to emulate corporate values on a national level has always been at the heart of every initiative. That’s why the idea of partnering with One Tree Planted stood out to WWG and together this year they rolled out the Rent One, Get One Tree campaign at all StorQuest stores nationwide. For every storage unit rented, one tree is planted in an at-risk growth area within the communities they serve. Share the hashtag #RootForTheFuture and check their progress towards a more awesome tomorrow.
