PROSHRED® Thanks YOU This Earth Day For Helping Improve Our Environment
Earth Day – How Paper Shredding Has Helped Save The Environment
PROSHRED®’s paper shredding services offer effective ways to prevent sensitive information from being stolen by identity thieves. PROSHRED®’s paper shredding services also offer huge environmental benefits and this is a great way to help make our Earth a greener and greater place to live.
PROSHRED® is dedicated to using a system that is environmentally friendly. 100% of all the materials that are run through our state-of-the-art, on-site shredding trucks are recycled in local recycling facilities. This process allows for the paper and other materials to be used again instead of ending up in landfills as unusable garbage. With Earth Day fast approaching, PROSHRED® wants to give back in the best way they can!
Less Waste Means More Trees Saved
By our clients using our services to recycle shredded materials, we can prevent the destruction of our forests and neighborhood environments. You might be asking yourself why shredding and recycling is better than throwing paper and other materials in the trash? According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, when you throw away just one piece of paper into a trash bin instead of your shredding or recycling box, that piece of paper becomes approximately 33% of the municipal solid waste stream (MSW), making it the largest portion of MSW.
The average office employee uses approximately 10,000 sheets of copy paper each year! By using PROSHRED®’s paper shredding services, your recycling goes a long way!
PROSHRED®’s Earth Day Sponsorships
This year, PROSHRED® is sponsoring local tree planting charities throughout the United States to plant trees in our neighborhoods on behalf of our loyal customers. PROSHRED® wants to extend their thanks to our customers by giving back in more ways than just recycling shredded materials. Through this collaboration with these local charities, we will be given the opportunity to demonstrate, through action, our concerns for the environment.
This program gives the charities, you – our customers, and PROSHRED® the opportunity to do our part in creating a better world. Throughout the rest of the 2017 year, our partnered charities will plant trees in local conservation areas, parks, and neighborhoods. These trees are planted as windbreaks to help reduce soil erosion from wind and rain, provide wildlife habitat for birds and other animals, and also beautify our parks and provide shade during warm summer days.
On behalf of PROSHRED®, thank you for being loyal customers and helping us make our world a better place this Earth Day!
*For each of our corporate locations we will donate $100 to each charity. This is a new initiative for PROSHRED® and their sponsors, and we will continue to work with the local charities across the states provide shredding and tree planting events.
