DISH announced that it will plant a tree for current customers who switch to DISH paperless billing in the month of April as part of the company’s celebration of Earth Month. DISH’s eBill option allows customers to receive their bill online rather than in the mail. Trees will be planted by American Forests, the oldest national nonprofit conservation organization in the country.
“We look forward to working with DISH and its customers to plant thousands of trees together this year. This initiative helps minimize waste, and contributes to the restoration and preservation of forestland in the United States.”
– Lea Sloan, VP of Communications at American Forests
DISH Paperless Billing Environmental Goals
Through this campaign, DISH and its customers will help American Forests toward its goal of planting 2.5 million trees in 2016. In the coming months, hundreds of volunteers will take part in planting a variety of native species to restore forest ecosystems.
This initiative seems to be a win for DISH as it seeks to enhance its efforts in helping the environment. Online billing helps customers benefit from enhanced data privacy, and DISH reduces its paper use and billing costs while planting trees to help preserve important forest areas in the United States. This is a great opportunity for DISH to engage their customers in the company’s sustainability efforts while making a positive impact on the environment.
The Earth Month campaign is part of the company’s corporate citizenship program, DISH Cares. DISH customers interested in signing up for eBill this month can do so by visiting mydish.com/mypreferences.
