eMinutes is Planting a Jungle

We’re planting a jungle! On September 2, 2008, eMinutes will officially announce our pledge to plant 10,000 trees through American Forests® (www.americanforests.org) within the next five years.

When we started planting trees in 2006 for all of our clients who select “paperless” document delivery, I have to admit that I felt a little granola. But in the last two years, we have planted a couple of thousand trees, and we are about to embark on planting a jungle with our commitment to plant 10,000 trees by August 2013.

In typical law firm fashion, we’re experts at wasting reams and reams of paper. Digital document delivery allows us to cater to our clients’ needs quicker and more efficiently than ever, and it’s been an eye-opening experience to discover the benefits of becoming paperless. Why 10,000 trees? Ten thousand trees release enough oxygen back into the atmosphere to support 20,000 human beings for one year. It’s proof that you can be environmentally responsible and benefit your business at the same time.

You can keep tabs on our progress and watch our jungle grow via quarterly email blasts with updated tree counts. To learn how we got started on our tree planting adventure, see Paper Doesn’t Grow On Trees.
