Thousands of schools across North America are saving trees with Peachjar’s innovative eflyer delivery system that eliminates the need to copy and distribute paper flyers. In celebration of Earth Day, Peachjar announced that since its inception in 2011, the company has eliminated the need to print over 190 million sheets of paper, saving nearly 23,000 trees.
“We are extremely excited to see each school district's eco-savings!” stated Mike Durham, CEO and founder of Peachjar. “We pride ourselves on being both a great resource for parents and a dedicated friend of the environment.”
To celebrate Earth Day 2015, Peachjar presented five school districts with its Green Campus Award for exemplary tree-savings. The award winners, Davis School District (Davis, UT), Cupertino Union School District (Cupertino, CA), Chesapeake Public Schools (Chesapeake, VA), Guilford County Schools (Greensboro, NC), and Chula Vista Elementary School District (Chula Vista, CA) combined to save 5,335 trees.
“Partnering with Peachjar has not only saved our schools time, but has also made it effortless to contribute to environmental conservation,” stated Renee Smith, confidential secretary to the superintendent at Cupertino Union School District. Adding, “In simple terms, we saved a forest!”
Peachjar was founded in 2011 in response to the billions of paper flyers being carried home from schools each year in children’s backpacks. The company has helped schools across the nation improve their school-to-home communication by delivering eflyers directly to parents. Check out Peachjar’s one-minute animatic to learn more.
