Libro Customer-Owners Go Paperless and Donate to Trees Ontario

June 12, 2009 – London, ON—Libro Financial Group is pleased to announce its donation of $20,000 to Trees Ontario, an organization which supports tree planting across the province. The money will be used to plant approximately 8,000 new tree seedlings in southwestern Ontario.

“We challenged 15% of our customer-owners to switch to paperless statements and promised a $20,000 donation to Trees Ontario if we achieved the goal together,” says Tania Goodine, VP Brand. “Everyone was eager and excited to help out the environment and we surpassed our goal, reaching 16% or nearly 8,000 owners who are paperless!”

“With Libro’s support we now have supported the planting of 8,000 more trees in southwestern Ontario,” says Michael Scott, President and CEO of Trees Ontario. “We are most grateful to Libro for their commitment, which is helping us to meet significant annual tree planting targets.”

Libro has shown strong commitment to the environment in the recent past by building green branches in St. Thomas, Wingham and Kitchener.

“We always look for ways to reduce our environmental impact whether it is offering paperless options, supporting organizations like Trees Ontario or building green where feasible,” explains Goodine.
