Trees are planted where they are needed most across the U.S. through a partnership Citi has established with the National Arbor Day Foundation.

With environmental benefits also derived from the reduced use of paper, trees and consumers both experience savings under Citi’s program.

Citi explained that the paperless statement option is an easy way for its customers to conserve a vital natural resource while also helping to replenish national forests.  The credit card issuer noted that seeks to make customers’ lives easier by reducing paper clutter while also addressing current environmental issues.
