First Bank & Trust Concludes “Go Paperless” Campaign
First Bank & Trust, in conjunction with the Arbor Day Foundation, recently wrapped up a “Go Paperless” campaign encouraging customers to enroll in Online Statements. For each account that converted, First Bank & Trust is having one tree planted.
The campaign ran from February 1 to April 30 and resulted in 2,970 accounts converted from paper statements to electronic and 2,970 trees to be planted. The trees will be planted by the Arbor Day Foundation in areas with the greatest need, oftentimes areas devastated by natural disaster such as flooding or tornadoes.
“We couldn’t be happier with the results of the campaign,” said Jason Jorgensen, Project Manager, Fishback Financial Corporation. “This was a rewarding initiative because it shows that First Bank & Trust is committed to efficiency and sustainability.”
Enrolling in Online Statements is free and means customers receive statements faster than receiving them by mail, as well as decrease the risk of lost or stolen statements. In addition to reducing paper waste and clutter and helping the environment, enrollment also allows customers to easily store digital statements, giving them 24/7 access to 18 months of history through Online Banking.
