Save a Tree, Plant a Tree


Switching from cheques to electronic payments is not only a smart business decision but it is also good for the environment.

When you switch to electronic payments you are no longer using paper products such as cheques, envelopes and stamps. You can even reduce CO2 emissions when you no longer need to drive around for signatures or for couriering cheques.

In honour of Earth Day and to reinforce our commitment to a healthier environment, Telpay is pleased announce our Save a Tree – Plant a Tree Program, in partnership with Tree Canada!

Planting Trees with Telpay
Every time a Canadian business replaces cheques with electronic payments by Telpay, we will celebrate their 100th bill payment by having Tree Canada plant a tree in their honour. Customers will also receive a certificate recognizing their donation and will be listed on our website as a ‘Telpay Green Partner’.

About Tree Canada
For over twenty years, Tree Canada has engaged communities, governments, corporations, and individuals in the pursuit of a greener and healthier living environment for Canadians. Under the direction of a  volunteer board of directors, Tree Canada provides Canadians with education, technical expertise, and resources to plant and care for urban and rural trees. Tree Canada has planted nearly 80 million trees and greened more than 550 schoolyards across the country.

At Telpay, we feel we have a responsibility to do our part for creating a healthy environment. We encourage all of our customers and every business across Canada to make the switch to electronic payments and join with Telpay to pledge to reduce paper consumption. By adopting electronic payments with Telpay, you can save a tree and plant one too!
