We Did It! We’ve Reforested 20,000 Trees Around the World and Here’s How

Back in July of 2021, AlphaGraphics in Boise joined the PrintReleaf organization to become forest neutral by planting a tree for every eight thousand sheets of paper used and printed at AlphaGraphics. Our team decided to set a goal to plant 20,000 trees in a year. As of November 1st, we’ve surpassed it. But don’t forget that this wouldn’t be possible without the business of our incredible customers. 

What is Print Releaf? is the world’s first technology platform that automatically converts paper footprints into actual trees. As customers print through us, Print Releaf actively replants trees where the planet needs it most. 

As AlphaGraphics sells paper products to loyal customers, its technology platform tracks how much is being used. By

reverse calculating, it measures how many trees can be planted, knowing that 8,300 sheets of paper make up 1 tree.

“We couldn’t have hit our 20,000 goal without our incredible customers who increased our paper footprint,” says Adam Bostrom, Director of Creative Services for seven of the AlphaGraphics centers in Idaho, Utah and Wyoming.

“Because we use resources from the earth to create our products, it’s our mission to avoid disrupting the natural life cycle through reforestation. We have been watching trees get planted in real-time, in locations such as the Dominican Republic, Brazil, California and around the world.”
