We recently announced our Paperless eScheduling Program to plant trees in acknowledgement of our members who choose to maintain paperless schedules by not printing. Although we are very excited to plant trees we thought it was best for the team to continue answering the phones rather breaking out the shovels and coveralls while enroute to the local arborist. We believe this to be the best choice for all involved :-)

To bring the idea of our tree-reward program to life we turned to the experts at Tree Canada who are dedicated to developing and sustaining green infrastructure. Established as a not-for-profit organization in 1992 Tree Canada works with organizations and individuals to plant and care for trees. The charitable organization is recognized for their tree planting initiatives and education programs. To date, more than 77 million trees have been planted, more than 450 schoolyards have been greened, and Tree Canada has organized 9 national urban forest conferences. More information about Tree Canada is available at www.treecanada.ca. The considerable efforts of these amazing people are helping maintain and expand the wonderful green sights you see when gazing upwards.

eSchedule loves Tree Canada!

eSchedule is celebrating Earth Day 2012 by planting trees on behalf of our customers.

April 22 marked the anniversary of what many consider the birth of the modern environmental movement, Earth Day. Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson founded Earth Day in 1970 after seeing the disaster following the massive 1969 oil spill in Santa Barbara, California. The move towards environmental protection through awareness of air and water pollution went global 1990 when Earth Day was observed by 200 Million people worldwide.

Earth Day is a launch pad for education, renewed commitments, and a reminder of an enduring way of life. Basically, we thought “Oh yeah, that is action we want a part of!” and will be planting trees on behalf of our customers. We have combined our great loves of ‘contribution’ and ‘easy’ to bring this program to life where we reward our customers for making paperless choices. Every year a tree will be planted on behalf of our customers for EACH eSchedule that goes unprinted.

Thank you to our extended family of eSchedule members. Your support creates the opportunity for this initiative to be reality. So, why not let us treat you to a tree!
