PrintReleaf (Denver, Colorado) has announced that its reforestation rate, reflecting the broad acceptance of its service among printers, nearly tripled in the last twelve months, to nearly a quarter-million copier pages per month in June of 2017. Since the service was introduced in 2014, PrintReleaf has planted more than 465,000 standard trees – the equivalent of some 3.9 billion standard copier sheets. “The success of PrintReleaf is based on the enthusiasm of our customers, who value the verified certification that trees have been planted corresponding to their paper use,” said Founder and CEO Jordan Darragh. “Our customer base continues to grow as more and more businesses learn how simple it is to be assured their paper consumption is being replaced through replanting. Based on our success in the managed print services sector, we’ll introduce PrintReleaf to the commercial printing, packaging and label printing markets at Print 17 in Chicago, September 10-14.”

PrintReleaf creates a global sustainability standard by certifiably guaranteeing to ‘releaf’ the paper consumption of its customers. PrintReleaf is the only technology platform that measures a customer’s paper usage and directly compensates for it with reforestation projects. The patented PrintReleaf technology not only tracks paper consumption, but also monitors PrintReleaf reforestation partners to ensure fulfillment. Market-leading companies with a passion for the environment and a progressive concern for advancing environmental stewardship, together with their customers, rely on PrintReleaf to provide “a nexus of partnerships involving forestry, technology and business.”
