At SOLE Financial, we’re more than just a paycard company. We are a financial inclusion company with a focus on social responsibility, environmental awareness, and economic growth. So much so that, when a client moves all of their employees to direct deposit, they will be recognized by our Paperless Trees Project. Our Paperless Trees Project honors companies that have eliminated paper checks by planting a grove of trees in the client’s name.
So… what exactly does planting a grove of trees do?
100 trees can produce the same cooling effect as 1,000 room size air conditioners operating for 20 hours a day.
100 trees can provide a day’s supply of oxygen for 400 people.
100 trees can produce 600,000 pounds of oxygen.
100 trees can absorb 4,800 pounds of carbon dioxide per year.
A belt of trees 100 feet wide can reduce highway noise by up to 10 decibels.
100 apple trees can yield 187,500 to 250,00 apples per year.
100 trees can reduce up to 100,000 gallons of rainfall runoff. Trees reduce urban runoff and erosion by sorting water and breaking the force of rain as it falls.
So far, we’ve planted over 20,400 trees in honor of our clients that have reached 100% direct deposit. What’s holding your company back from going paperless?
