Print A Forest: 100 Documents = 1 Tree

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  August 20, 2011

A lot of offices are going paperless to show that they’re trying to be more green (the good, environmental kind) and eco-friendly. However, there are still many instances where physical copies of documents are still required.

That’s where Print A Forest comes in.


So how does it work? Well, first you need to download a piece of software so you can start “printing forests.” Each document that you will print via the program will include a small sponsored ad at the bottom of each page you print. Print 100 pages, and you will have donated enough money to plant a tree. How about that?

The problem is, of course, on people’s willingness to have ads printed on their documents. It’s one thing to click on ads on a certain site to donate a few grains (or was it cups?) of rice to impoverished people in need (now that I think about it, were those sites for real? Or were they just scam sites to get people to click on ads?), but it’s another to have ads printed right on your documents.

If you don’t mind and want to get in on the green movement, learn more about Print A Forest, or get the program, head on over to their site to get started.
