Mt. Laurel, NJ (PRWEB) April 22, 2009
ShredStation Express, a leader in consumer and small business information destruction and recycling, today announced that it will be making a donation to the Arbor Day Foundation on behalf of its customers. The company has committed to donating two trees for every order placed during the three-day period starting on Earth Day and continuing through Arbor Day (April 22nd, 2009 - April 24th, 2009).
"Many people feel like they're doing the right thing when they shred documents to prevent ID theft and protect their privacy, but most people that use home shredders end up putting all of the shredded material directly in their trash," said Al Villamil, President of ShredStation, Inc. "At ShredStation, we have a zero landfill policy so 100 percent of the paper we shred is recycled. We feel strongly about preserving the environment and one of the best ways to prove that we care is to plant more trees."
According to the Arbor Day Foundation, over the course of 50 years, a single tree can generate $31,250 of oxygen, provide $62,000 worth of air pollution control, recycle $37,500 worth of water and control $31,500 worth of soil erosion.
On the day after Arbor Day, April 25th, ShredStation will make its contribution to the Arbor Day Foundation in accord with number of orders placed in the three-day period. Customers can place paper shredding and electronic media destruction orders by visiting shredstation.com or calling 877-SHRED-XP.
