Transparent Language Plants Hundreds of Trees on Behalf of Their Customers for Earth Day 2009
Until our recycle friendly packaging comes out this summer, we pledged to plant trees for those who chose to download software instead of requesting product delivery to encourage earth friendly behaviors.Nashua, N.H., June 16, 2009 - Transparent Language is proud to announce the planting of hundreds of trees through the nonprofit organization American Forests, on behalf of their customers who downloaded software during their "plant a tree" promotion in April 2009 for Earth Day. As a part of their new Green Practices initiative for 2009, it became more important to remind visitors to choose the "download now" option for Transparent's language.
"We are glad to encourage more software downloads since it helps to reduce waste that occurs with traditional online retail purchases which are not recyclable." said Michael Quinlan, CEO of Transparent Language. "Our company is taking many steps towards greener practices, and offering more products via download. Our new Transparent Product Line will be introduce this summer with Earth friendly packaging for those who don't want to download. We're glad we can encourage our customers to make eco-friendly choices and simultaneously help replace trees destroyed by wildfires."
This year, we have initiated new green practices, which can be viewed at the Transparent Language website. Through American Forests, the nation's oldest nonprofit citizens' conservation organization, Transparent Language has contributed to the Global ReLeaf Project to help restore forests severely damaged by wildfire in California. Other green initiatives taking place include purchasing only recycled copy paper, reusing packing materials in shipments, recycling toner cartridges, paper, plastics and cans, and donating paper to local schools for fundraisers.
