Since 1999, 4over4.com has not only paved the way as one of the first online printing companies, but also as a green printing company, having embraced eco-friendly printing practices and environmental sustainability as a matter of corporate policy. In the wake of threatening environmental realities like deforestation and global warming, it is no surprise that people and corporations everywhere are starting to turn a 'green' leaf. With this new wave of increased environmental thinking has come more energy-saving and environmentally-

4over4.com holds Chain of Custody Certification from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). This international organization, sanctioned by such respected names as the National Wildlife Federation, The Nature Conservancy, Sierra Club and World Wildlife Fund, is devoted to encouraging responsible management of the world’s forests. Its certification process ensures that the paper used at 4OVER4.COM was manufactured from wood harvested from well-managed forests.
4OVER4.COM’s green efforts are numerous and with the current “100,000 Trees for Humanity” green initiative, 4over4.com hopes to plant 100,000 trees with the support of like-minded people and green advocates around the world.
4over4.com has identified planting trees as a sustainable way of correcting certain environmental issues, including deforestation. As an online printing provider, 4over4.com recognizes that the trees used in the production of paper, on which most printing is done, need to be replaced in order to balance out the effect on the environment. Trees are crucial in restoring vital oxygen back to the environment. Trees also contribute to temperature control and natural cover/blocking of UV rays. Deforestation is an ugly reality that is sweeping through the world and exposing humanity to dangers which can be avoided by steps towards environmental conservation.
“At 4over4.com, we are trying to find ways to contribute to the wellness of the environment, and our latest effort is “100,000 Trees for Humanity”. Our goal is to plant 100,000 trees but we also want to raise awareness and encourage participation from the community at large. As a web based company we wanted to use the power of the Internet to raise awareness about this important issue and garner support from our end users and their circles of influence as well,” states Taso Panagiotopoulos, principal at 4OVER4.COM.
“We will plant a tree for every time someone spreads the message about this initiative. We do this by asking that you create a link to our website to create awareness and show support. For each link, we will plant one tree. You can link from your social networking profiles, your blog, or your website. It does not matter. But we can’t do it alone, we need people to support this initiative. The more people spread the word, the more trees will get planted. If we see some positive results, we’ll seek the participation of other organizations as well.”
