What Scan for Trees is
Business cards are made of paper, which is in turn made of wood.
With Scan for Trees, we are returning business cards to the forest; by planting trees in areas needing regeneration.
We plant one new tree for every tree’s worth of business cards which have been scanned into Sansan.
Making a business tree forest in areas with nothing but grass
- “Scan for Trees” is based on NOW, our project for addressing issues of society as a whole. We want to do activities based on our company’s size, thinking that the most important thing for providing support is to continue. Right now, we are planting trees in Miyako, Iwate prefecture, an area in the mountains from which rivers start. It is also one of the coldest areas in the prefecture.
This number of trees, based on the business cards scanned into Sansan, will in 10 or 20 years become a forest made from business cards.
