The company launched their 10,000 Tree Challenge this year with the aim of raising enough funds to plant trees across the globe in the areas they are needed most. To achieve this goal, the Shred Station team is participating in a range of activities that have so far included a baking competition, a giant Easter egg raffle and a bowling tournament. The company has already raised enough to plant 2,595 trees, so are over a quarter of the way to their goal with many activities still left planned.
The company is hoping their next activity – a company directors’ Pie Face Day – will raise enough to push them over the 3,000 trees mark. Each of the company’s four directors has two jars, one virtual and one at the company’s Norwich head office. Between now and June 16th, the company is accepting donations into these jars, and the director with the most donations will receive a ceremonious pie in the face. The pieing will be recorded and uploaded to the company’s social media channels, so external donors and remote employees can tune into the action.
The company’s 10,000 Tree Challenge is just one of the many steps Shred Station has made to increase the environmental friendliness of its operations. The company has a strict zero-to-landfill policy, an ultra-low emission fleet, and also has a Shred a Tonne, Plant a Tree scheme for their customers. Not only that, but Shred Station is also now in its fourth year of being a CarbonNeutral® certified company.
