Male Spectrum Makes Earth Day Donation

VAN NUYS, Calif. – Gay adult studio Male Spectrum has made an Earth Day-inspired donation to Trees for the Future, an organization that has assisted in the planting of more than 50 million trees since it was established more than 20 years ago.

“Last month, we made a donation to the Human Rights Campaign in support of GLBT marriage rights, and this month we’re making a contribution that will make it possible for Trees for the Future to plant thousands of trees,” said Lea Busick, subscription site and affiliate program director for Male Spectrum. “We made these donations for many reasons — the primary one being that we strongly believe in the mission of both organizations — but the opportunity to demonstrate that a gay porn company can make a positive contribution to the community is a welcome side-effect, no question.”

MaleSpectrum’s donations stem from its subscription sites, including flagship mobile site iMaleSpectrum.com.

“The donation to Trees for the Future is part of a larger effort on our part to become a ‘greener’ company,” said Male Spectrum’s brand and product manager Kim Kysar. “We’re also trying out more environmentally friendly packaging, doing a variety of things to reduce the amount of electricity we consume at the office, and moving to a paperless payroll system. We’ve also purchased carbon offset credits in order to make both PinkVisual.com and MaleSpectrum.com carbon-neutral websites.”

Busick said that Male Spectrum hopes that its efforts will serve to inspire similar actions on the part of the studio’s fans and customers and “produce a ripple effect of small but positive steps.”

“Every little bit helps,” Busick said. “Rome wasn’t built in a day, and the global environmental issues aren’t going to be a quick fix either, but there’s no time like the present for all of us to start doing our part.”
