WARRINGTON, England, October 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The  corporate holiday ecards  supplier has planted 40,000 trees so far, but believes it will smash the 60,000 barrier by the end of the year due to festive demand

eCO2Greetings, a leading corporate ecards supplier, expects to surpass sixty thousand trees planted across the globe as demand for its corporate Christmas E-cards increases. As part of its business plan, eCO2Greetings plants 10 trees for every eCard ordered to support UK businesses in offsetting their carbon footprint.

As the pressure ramps up on organisations in the UK to slash carbon emissions they are increasingly turning to business ecards. Ecards are a way for businesses to send festive greetings straight to their clients' inboxes instead of wasting tonnes of paper and the hazardous carbon emissions associated with large mail outs. eCO2greetings runs a simple interactive ecard platform enabling business to design, personalise and send thousands of business ecards to its client base at the click of a button without having a damaging effect on the environment.

Working in partnership with American Forests, eCO2Greetings plants trees as part of a Global Releaf campaign; which is attempting to restore damaged forests across the globe and encourage agriculture in third world countries. Since its launch in 2008, eCO2Greetings has increased its business tenfold and has in turn planted 40,000 trees, but believes it is now on the verge of seeing this number flourish by a further 20,000 as business becomes brisk during the festive season.

Chris Rowson, founder of eCO2Greetings, is "delighted" that the business is giving so much "back to the environment", saying: "It's really great to see business ecards really taking off within UK organisations, as it is far more eco-friendly way of sending Christmas greetings. It seems a long time ago that we committed to planting trees as part of our green promise and it is now immensely pleasurable to see that paying off with such large numbers of trees now growing around the world because of us and our clients.

"As a business we continue to innovate in order to launch fully optimised ecards for mobile devices to ensure that more Christmas ecards for business are sent moving forward," he added.
