DocTech's Commitment To Tree Planting

Rachel Tilley Author: Rachel Tilley

DocTech are extremely happy to formally announce our partnership with One Tree Planted, a non-for-profit organisation committed to global reforestation. 

One Tree Planted relies on donors to sustain the significant impact they are making around the world.

When organisations implement a document management system they are already supporting the environment by reducing paper use as they move to a more secure way of storing documents digitally.  Information no longer needs to be printed, physically stored or posted saving huge volumes of paper.  Paper use and water wastage

A less-known fact is that reducing paper use also goes along way towards reducing water consumption as it requires 10 litres of water to produce a single piece of A4 paper.

As a company that cares about our planet, we wanted to build on the benefits that our software brings by planting trees.  We believe that partnering with One Tree Planted is the perfect way to do this.

They help to raise awareness about the importance of trees, offer businesses like ours a simple sustainability solution, and motivate younger generations to do something positive for the environment.

The Importance Of Trees

Trees are some of nature's greatest providers and the importance they play in everyday life should not be under estimated.  Through-out history, humans have depended on trees for food, shade and shelter.

Clean Air

Trees clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, create habitats for biodiversity and contribute to our health and wellbeing. 

Trees also absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere helping to keep it cool whilst releasing oxygen back into the atmosphere.

Health And Wellbeing

Research has shown that hospital beds with a view of trees helps patients recover faster than those without that view.  And it's hard not to notice how we all feel after a walk in the woods or countryside, calmer, less stressed and generally happier.

Trees and making medicineProviding Jobs

Forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, think about tree surgeons, researchers and loggers, not to mention farmers who pick fruit, nuts and leaves for human and animal consumption. 

Helping With Medicine Production

Did you know trees provide key ingredients for 25% of all medicines and more than 60% of anticancer drugs originate from natural sources? 

Aspirin comes from the bark of a tree, who knew?! Amazing stuff really.
