On Thursday, September 18, Telpay hosted the first annual Telpay for Trees Event at FortWhyte Alive in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Partnering with Tree Canada through their Partners In Planting Program, the event was in support National Tree Day. A country wide celebration for all Canadians to appreciate the benefits that trees provide us, that include clean air, wildlife habitat, beauty and connecting with nature.
On a warm sunny day, together Telpay customers, partners and staff planted over 150 trees in the new area dedicated to the memory of world-renown wildlife photographer Robert R. Taylor.
Taylor was best known for his images of Manitoba polar bears, great gray owls and prairie bison. His work photographs appeared in Equinox, International Wildlife and Readers Digest. Taylor’s polar bear images assisted in the development of the tourist industry and tundra buggy tours in Churchill.
At the Post Plant Reception, the crowd enjoyed food, drink and music by Telpay’s very own house band. The Telpay for Trees Event also celebrates our customers across the country, that no longer use cheques, envelopes and stamps. In addition to saving paper, they are reducing the CO2 emissions produced by the physical transportation and delivery of mail.
At Telpay we are proud to celebrate National Tree Day and our electronic payment solution, by planting tiny trees that will grow into towering trees.
