TreeRing Joins California Green Business Program
Planting a tree for every yearbook sold
Partnering with a green-certified printer to produce our yearbooks on recycled paper
Recycling and composting as many materials in our office as possible
To date, TreeRing has planted more than 700,000 trees with its partner, Trees for the Future, and is on pace to pass the 1 million trees planted mark later this year.
The Green Business Program is a network of local programs operated by counties and cities throughout California. Together, the local programs and businesses that comprise them have saved more than 820,000 metric tons of CO2 (about the equivalent of planting 43,000 acres of urban trees a year for 10 years!) and have saved more than $30 million in energy costs.
To be certified as a Green Business, companies must demonstrate that they take action to conserve resources and prevent pollution in their facilities and operations. Credit-worthy action items consist of certain requirements for all businesses. These items are then verified through several on-site assessments.
