As the year draws to a close, we want to express our deepest gratitude to all our incredible Showcase users for their contribution to the Forest Releaf Fund in 2023. 

Your active participation and engagement have made a world of difference, and we're thrilled to share this end-of-year wrap-up of the impact of this program.

Here’s a quick reminder of how the Forest Releaf Fund works, and some stats on what we’ve accomplished so far.

How You’re Helping the Environment by Using Showcase Workshop

With Showcase, you can replace your printed sales materials and three-ring binders with a user-friendly app, reducing the need for vast amounts of paper. 

A single tree produces approximately 8,500 sheets of paper, equivalent to 17 reams of standard office copier paper — so for every 8,500 slide views in your Showcase app, you're saving a tree because each slide you view digitally means one fewer printed page.

But our commitment to environmental responsibility goes further. 

For every 8,500 user slide views in our app, we also donate $10 to Trees that Count, and every donation directly funds the planting of one native tree as part of our Forest Releaf Fund.

So when you manage your content digitally with Showcase, you're not only saving trees by reducing the need for printed pages, but you're also facilitating the planting of new trees.

What Our Community Has Helped Us Achieve So Far

Now, let's talk about the numbers. 

In 2023, your collective efforts have funded the planting of 1,034 trees. 

That brings the total number — since we launched the Releaf campaign in 2018 — to over 5,700 trees.

Wondering about the impact of those numbers?

The 5,700 trees you’ve helped plant will remove about 1,307 tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere over the next 50 years.

But this isn't just about numbers — it's about the lasting impact we're making together. The success of the Releaf Fund is a testament to your dedication, your willingness to be stewards of our environment, and your belief in a better, greener future.

You've shown that small actions can lead to significant change.

We started the Releaf campaign because native trees are the lifeline of our planet.

Trees preserve our ecosystem, help us fight climate change, support countless people’s livelihoods, and actively clean the air by filtering out pollutants. 

By saving and planting trees, we can help ensure a healthier, greener future for generations to come.

With Deepest Gratitude This Holiday Season

We’re sending our deepest gratitude to our entire Showcase Workshop community this year. 

Your support and engagement have helped us achieve remarkable milestones (and practice reforesting at the same time!) 

Together, we're making a real difference, one tree at a time. Here's to a brighter and greener future for all.

Happy Thanksgiving!
