Schools across the nation are going paperless and 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 helped schools eliminate the need to print nearly 600 million sheets of paper, saving roughly 72,000 trees.
To celebrate Earth Day 2016, Peachjar presented three school districts with its Green Campus Award for exemplary tree-savings. The award winners, Pasadena Unified School District (Pasadena, Calif.), Jenks Public Schools (Jenks, OK), and San Ramon Valley Unified School District (Danville, Calif.), combined to save 2,460 trees over the past year.
“We are thrilled to help districts accomplish their goals of becoming more environmentally friendly,” stated Mike Durham, founder and CEO of Peachjar. “As a thank you for their environmental conservation efforts, we’ve arranged for 100 trees to be planted in the Tahoe National Forest in each of the award-winning district’s names.”
“The San Ramon Valley Unified School District moved to Peachjar a few years ago as part of our efforts to be more environmentally friendly and embrace innovative technology,” said Elizabeth Graswich, director of communications and community relations for San Ramon Valley Unified School District.
"We are honored to be recognized for supporting green initiatives. This award is evidence of the focus on sustainable resources, not only as a district but citywide. Our efforts are prefaced by a continued focus and commitment to being a model district that practices conservation,” stated Mercy Santoro, associate superintendent of school support services for Pasadena Unified School District.
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.
