19,811 new trees in Africa
For every order made via Optimalprint, we make a donation to the Green Belt Movement ("GBM"). So far, our contribution has resulted in 19,811 trees being planted in Kenya. Our donations would not be possible without you!
Optimalprint is continuing to grow and, consequently, as is our desire to minimize our impact on the environment in which we live.
Printed paper originates from the very trees that the GBM is planting and breeding. We will therefore continue to support GBM as we grow further.
