I have to admit, I’m not very green. I resent recycling. I don’t drive a hybrid. But I love trees. And I like Planet Earth — both the series and the orbiting sphere on which I reside. When I started eReleases, I liked the idea of taking paper out of the equation (physically mailing and faxing press releases was still being done in earnest 11 years ago). For me, it was about being efficient. In fact, we’re a very green company. Our billing, payroll, and customer service is completely paperless.
eReleases: Home of the GreenRelease(TM)
This Earth Day, I decided to celebrate by launching a cool initiative: GreenRelease(TM). Every press release issued through eReleases results in a tree being planted. In fact, we’ve already purchased 20,000 trees for the press releases we’ve issued since 1998.
Full Disclosure: Mickie’s Shoveling Days Are Behind Him
Now, I’m not physically planting these trees. I’ve planted a few hundred tulip and daffodil bulbs in my time not to mention half a dozen trees. I’m letting a cool, Maryland-based nonprofit handle the heavy lifting: Trees for the Future (http://www.treesftf.org). You should really take a look at the great things they are doing.

Saving You Green
In addition, I wanted to let you know about another green initiative, one designed to save your company money. eReleases has launched the Press Release Starter Club where you get to issue an enhanced press release every calendar quarter for $99 a month.

How’s Mickie Doing?
A few customers have asked how my weight loss is going. There have been obstacles and bumps in the road but I’m down a total of 56 pounds. Even more importantly, I’ve been able to get my fitness level up. I can now jog for three miles straight as well as do these painful manipulations called push-ups for the first time in my life.
