Working Together for the Environment
It's About Making the Right Choices
The environment is an important issue. At Sparklit we’re taking steps to help our customers make the right choices and reduce their ecological impact. These steps will also help us reduce our own impact.
Doing our part to protect the environment is an important responsibility we all share. Here at Sparklit, we hope to work together with our customers in this endeavor.
Share our concern for the environment? Receive invoices electronically and make payments online!
Online billing will not only save our forests, it'll save you money.
Those who still need a paper invoice are charged $1.50 per invoice mailed. Proceeds are donated to Evergreen – a national charity that has been planting trees and creating dynamic outdoor spaces in schools and communities since 1991.
In the Community
We're proud to support our communities
All proceeds from our billing program are donated directly to Evergreen's Common Grounds Program, a national service that aims to conserve natural and cultural landscapes, restore degraded environments, and protect spaces for open recreation, education, and enjoyment.
Why trees are so important
- One large tree can provide a day's oxygen for up to 4 people.
- One large tree can lift up to 450 litres of water out of the ground and discharge it into the air in one day.
- You need about 500 full sized trees to absorb the carbon dioxide produced by a typical car driven 20,000 km/year.
- Each healthy tree can reduce airborne dust particles by as much as 7,000 particles per litre of air, thus a healthy tree is a freestanding air conditioner and purifier.
