TreeRing – Preserving memories of childhood and our future earth

Submitted by on Tuesday, 22 September 2009 Loading Add to favourites  2 Comments

treering1This week I discovered TreeRing; who create yearbooks for the internet generation . Having a love of trees my curiosity was piqued, and I’ve been taking a look at their great site.

Have you ever asked yourself what, exactly it is, you and the environment are paying for with your child’s yearbook? How many photos of your child appeared in this year’s yearbook? How many yearbooks get trashed because they are unwanted?

Eco friendly

What I love about this idea is the environmental benefits. All book purchases are made online by parents. This means you only pay for what you need and, more importantly, there are no unwanted printed yearbooks left to dispose of.  This not only saves trees, but saves schools money, who traditionally have had to commit to a fixed number of books to purchase every year.

In addition, TreeRing has partnered with Trees for the Future to plant 1 tree for every yearbook they sell. According to Conservatree, around 300 books can be made from one tree, so using TreeRing is a great way to give something back to the environment.

Saves trees

Traditional yearbooks are made entirely by the school and typically have only a few photos of each student. TreeRing has brought an exciting and dynamic concept to schools with their revolutionary online yearbook creation.   With the help of their easy to use online tools, TreeRing allows the school to create the traditional yearbook, but the best part is each parent/student can create their own, unique pages that get printed in their personalised version of the yearbook.  For something that most parents already routinely buy every year for their children, this yearbook will be incredibly more valuable in preserving their child’s memories by including their favorite photos and events during the year.

Why not tell your Principal about TreeRing and begin creating a unique, community-based yearbook that will preserve memories AND the future of our planet?
