Epic Displays Has Announced The Launch Of "Epic Forest - One Tree Per Order"

TORONTO, April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Epic Displays has announced the launch of "Epic Forest - One Tree Per Order," a green initiative aimed at promoting sustainability in the trade show industry through the planting of one tree for every online sale made through EpicDisplays.com.

Ever since Epic Displays planted its first seedlings in Alberta in 2012, the Epic Forest has grown to include more than 200 square meters of new land. The carbon offsetting initiative being pursued by Epic Displays is especially important given the trade show industry's historical reputation as one that requires carbon-heavy business activities, such as airplane travel and the use of packing materials.

The trade show industry is widely reported to produce 600,000 tons of waste annually. By offsetting just some of this waste, Epic Displays customers can make an immediate impact on the environment, without any extra cost or effort.

Datch Haven, president of Epic Displays, said: "We want to be a resource for what we see as the inevitable greening up of the trade show industry and we want to be on the forefront of that. That's what this program is all about. It's the first baby step into making every order that comes from us - not just the ones for our eco-friendly displays - have something to do with sustainability."

The "Epic Forest – One Tree Per Order" program is possible through the support of The Carbon Farmer, which manages forests on behalf of individuals and companies like Epic Displays, while also offering carbon credits.

Carbon Farmer co-founders Brad and Rebecca Rabiey said: "We're truly impressed by Epic Displays' genuine passion to bring an eco-revolution to the trade show and event industry. Having a partner like this makes it even more rewarding for us to put our shovels in the ground and plant trees on behalf of their clients."
