How it Works
The PrintReleaf Exchange (PRX) is the first known technology platform that measures a customer's paper consumption and connects them to reforestation projects around the world. Customers are now able to "releaf" (or offset) their consumption by planting new trees.
PRX measures paper consumption through a technology integration with popular MPS print monitoring software applications that capture the required paper usage data (meter data) that drives the PrintReleaf service.
PRX guarantees every sheet of paper a customer consumes will be reforested at a rate of 8,333 sheets of standard letter (8.5 x 11" x 20lb paper) per tree (40 ft height x 7 in width).
Through PRX, paper is automatically measured and trees are automatically releafed across PrintReleaf Certified Global Reforestation Projects on a monthly basis to continually offset the customer's environmental impact.
Benefits of PrintReleaf
Measure Your Impact
Since its launch, PrintReleaf has measured 32 million-plus pages and releafed more than 3,800 trees.
With PrintReleaf, you can "releaf" (reforest) your paper consumption by planting the amount of new trees equivalent to paper used at global reforestation sites of your choice. Through PrintReleaf's integration with Global Forest Watch, a platform hosted by the World Resources Institute, explore heat map technology that represents forest loss and gain across the globe, indicating which areas on the planet needs trees most.
PrintReleaf reforests at a generally accepted rate of 8,333 sheets of paper per tree (the equation detailed in PrintReleaf's global standard for sustainability). After selecting where they want their paper releafed, customers can use their online portal to track the evolution, growth, and survival of their trees over an approximate eight-year time frame for each tree.
