FineAwards.com is Going Green
While our goal has always been crystal clear, our new mission is a lighter shade of green. We are focused on creating beautiful awards for all of our customers while exercising corporate responsibility. We feel the keys to success and longevity in any industry are customer service and commitment to the community. The right combination of dedication and passion to both will ensure a more rewarding experience we can all enjoy now and in the future.

Donating Trees Everyday
Starting back in July 2009, FineAwards.com was proud to announce that for every order over $100 we would donate at least 1 tree on our customer's behalf and we kicked off our new initiative by planting 5000 trees to help sustain cultures around the world. Just one year later our tally is up to over 10,000 trees planted thanks in large part to you, our "forever customers", for your loyal support of our program as well as your own initiatives to recognize deserving employees within your organization..
Now at the same time your awards program recognizes your brightest stars, you are also creating a brighter future for others around the world. Help us do our part for the environment.

Our initiative of "going green" had its payback in terms of financial dividends and reduction of expenses. It requires cultural change but the results can be financially meaured just like all the other activities withing a company.
Here are some easy "green" ideas that you can apply in your office to generate financial payback and peace of mind:
Switch from regular fax machine to e-fax
Adjust printer settings to double-sided and print in "light dark"
Turn off computers at the end of the day
Print using recycled copy paper
Buy refurbished ink cartridge and toner which can cost you half of the price
Did you know that:
Having a coffee pot on for 8 hrs = $10.08 each monthly
Having your computer/monitor on for 24 hrs = $12.10 per month for each station?
B120 tons of steel is saved if every U.S. office worker used one less staple a day?
What Our Customers are Saying...
This was a great surprise and a wonderful way to help the world's environment."

We were very happy with the way the award turned out and the fact that 10 trees were planted on our name. Thank you!
