How does PaperCut Grows work?

We leverage our industry-leading expertise to estimate your business printing up front.

Before you even press print, we calculate how many pieces of paper your printing uses. We then convert that into a figure of trees to plant.

Our non-profit tree planting partners then plant your trees in a global reforestation tree planting project hand-picked by you. 

You then print knowing that all those print jobs aren’t a deficit on the planet, because you’ve already invested in an environmental surplus with Forest Positive printing. 

Then once you approach your original investment, it’s time to reinvest and purchase more trees to stay Forest Positive.
