Welaka State Forest in Florida has been partially reforested by Noventri digital signage through a partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation and purchases of the Noventri Eco-Series SF-100e digital signage players.
The Eco-Series SF-100e digital signage player is a green, eco-friendly technology introduced in 2009. At the same time, in an effort to make their product more environmentally savvy, Noventri agreed to plant a tree for each digital signage player purchased through The Arbor Day Foundation and have assisted in 2011 in reforesting Florida’s Welaka State Forest.
The Welaka State Forest is located in northeastern Florida, and hosts a series of hiking trails for local recreation. The forest is also home to an assortment of functioning ecosystems and a large variety of trees and plant life that flourish along the river swamps of the St. John’s River.
Drought conditions led to a need for supplemental planting of longleaf pines to increase tree density to adequate levels. Noventri was partially responsible for the total of 11,200 trees planted in February of 2011 thanks to the sales of the Noventri Eco-Series Digital Signage Players.
“It is such a feeling of accomplishment seeing the results of this program,” says Andrew Hoffman, VP of Noventri. “And we thank our clients, since it was their purchases that allowed for our donations to plant trees and support existing eco-systems.”
The Eco-Series SF-100e digital signage player uses less than four watts of energy. This is a substantial savings over using a standard computer to provide digital signage. The SF-100e also saves fossil fuel since it is a Made-In-USA product. Planting a tree for each purchased player just takes being eco-friendly a step further.
Some of the recent clients whose purchases were responsible for the reforestation of the Welaka State Forest include: Clareo Networks, Ionics EMS, Inc., Concert Technologies, Kansas City Convention Center, New Orleans Convention Center, Augsburg Lutheran Home, V-Spots Digital Marketing, Fenway Park/ARAMARK, ECI Communications, Metrocom Oy, Hagerstown Regional Airport, Verizon Center/ARAMARK, and Richmond Convention Center.
