Program Conducted with American Forests to Plant Trees Around the World
ORLANDO, Fla. (March 13, 2008)—CollaborateMD, a leading provider of Internet-based medical billing software for physician offices and medical billing services, today announced their “Plant a Tree by Going ASP” program. The program is being conducted in cooperation with American Forests, the nation’s oldest nonprofit citizen’s conservation organization.
“Our customers are already saving money on electricity and excess paper and are helping reduce carbon emissions from servers by using our Web-based system, but we wanted to go one step further to help the environment,” said Douglas Kegler, president and founder, CollaborateMD. “Of course, the trees are not only an effective means for absorbing and storing the carbon we emit, they also help cool the environment, produce oxygen, and provide a home for birds and other wildlife.”
CollaborateMD will begin the program by donating money to American Forest to purchase 3,000 trees, one for each active user on its system. In addition, CollaborateMD will purchase another 500 trees to help offset the company’s estimated carbon dioxide output this year. CollaborateMD will repeat the program at the beginning of each year.
Since 1875, American Forests has been working to protect, restore and enhance the natural resource of trees and forests, planting trees in over 500 projects that span every state in the U.S. as well as 21 countries worldwide. Every dollar donated will pay to plant one tree in one of the many projects American Forests has underway and will help the organization reach its goal to plant 100 million trees by 2020.
