And we are STILL kicking!

Lol. Someone just emailed in to say "Are you guys still sending these stickers out?"

Yes indeed! Send them out twice a week! So order away, and they'll show up to you lickety split!

Don't worry folks! We're still kicking!

Some folks have asked if we're still fulfilling these. We sure are!

Just ordered another 100k stickers the other day because we were running out!

Yay saving trees!

Whoa! 1,000+ K-12 Organizations Have Conserved Trees with These Come From Trees

I was just doing a little bit of housekeeping, and in the process, looked through the total number of requests that we've received and fulfilled via our K-12 Challenge.

Since the original idea back in 2009, when some nice teachers reached out asking for us to consider sending them complimentary stickers, because they didn't have budget with which to purchase them, we have received and serviced more than 1,000 requests.

That's really impressive!

Wow! 500,000 stickers to date!

We were just doing some internal account calculations while looking to do a big re-order, and it looks like we've sent out 500,000 stickers since the start of the project way back in 2007!

And that is, of course, both in the form of purchased stickers, and also in the form of the K-12 Challenge!

That's a lot of paper towels that haven't been used! Exciting!

It's Showtime! These Come From Trees Stickers Show Up In "Ray Donovan" Epsidoe

My buddy Pat Lee had an awesome find today.

On his vacation, he and the family were watching some episodes of Ray Donovan, a Showtime TV show starring Liev Schreiber, when lo and behold, there in a scene shot in a bathroom, there were some These Come From Trees stickers on the paper towel dispensers. How cool is that?

Unclear if the scene was shot on location somewhere that already had the stickers, or if the set dresser decided that they were must have additions! Either way, very cool.

These Come From Trees Animated across the USA!

I just love this visualization of the These Come From Trees purchase history overlaid by Zip Code on a map of the US.

Special thanks to my friend Jonah Berger, author of the awesome book "Contagious: Why Things Catch On", who thought that the viral nature of These Come From Trees stickers would be an interesting thing to check the virality of.

In the case of this animation, it's purchases since 2009, overlaid on their Zip Code, and weighted by purchase size.

So you can see when  large purchase shows up (often times for a University, like the University of Washington, in Seattle), and then how that is preceded by certain purchasing behavior, and then succeeded by what appears to be accelerated purchasing behavior.

Like check out how Wisconsin goes crazy after the initial large purchase in early 2011, having previously been more sporadic.

Neat stuff!

University of Toronto Deploying 10,000 These Come From Trees Stickers

We recently blogged about how the University of Washington is deploying 3,000 These Come From Trees stickers across its campus to help reduce paper towel usage.

Well, we totally forgot that earlier this summer, the University of Toronto purchased 10,000 stickers for use by their central facilities office to deploy throughout campus. How did we go and forget to blog that? So we're fixing it with this post.

According to an email conversation I just had with one of their facilities staff, the deployment went well, and they are happy with the results so far. I'm hoping to get some accurate numbers on usage impact, and hoping that it shows up in the 30% reduction range that we've seen before!
