Today is the one day out of the year dedicated to reminding us all to be more considerate of the Earth’s natural environment by unplugging electronics, fixing leaky faucets, and using green products. As a client of Dirxion, you may not be aware of the positive impact you’ve already been making the other 364 days of the year, just by publishing a version of your print for desktops, laptops, iPads and smartphones. Here’s a quick reminder.
Last year you saved 532,500 square feet of preserved rain forest through our pledge to donate to the Arbor Day Foundation with each digital publication we produce!
Apart from our donations, at the time of writing this post you’ve contributed to saving approximately 19,033,163 pieces of paper from ever being produced and distributed, saving countless trees from being cut down. [See our real time pages saved ticker on our website]
You’ve saved harmful emissions from damaging the Earth’s atmosphere by delivering your publications through email, Google results, Facebook apps, on smartphones and iPads. You’ve reduced the number of large trucks it takes to pass your physical publication on to smaller trucks and then divvied out to a colossal fleet of mail trucks.
You’ve saved a substantial amount of waste from piling up in landfills across the country, because when your reader is done with your publication they just push a delete button or we remove your publication from our servers.
For some of you, the environment was your primary motive in offering a digital publication. For other’s this is merely a side effect of your marketing efforts. Either way, it’s no secret that with print comes waste. We’re happy that our product helps, our excesses are nothing, and no matter what the driving force is, we’re all doing a little good. And that is something to be proud of. Happy Earth Day!
P.S. If you’re not creating a digital publication yet, and need a little more added incentive, like our Facebook page for a special Earth Day promotion. You’ll makes some tree’s day.
