Happy Earth Day!

Today is the 40th anniversary and celebration of Earth Day.  With individuals, organizations and companies participating from all over the world it is a day to stop and think about our planet and what we can do to make environmental protection a part of our daily life.

Unfortunately, discovery is a paperwork-intensive process and that’s why Rainmaker is committed to conducting business in the most eco-friendly manner possible: 

  • We use copy paper certified as part of the Sustainable Forestry Initiative, which means it is from well-managed forests, backed by a rigorous, third-party certification audit. 
  • We use file folder tabs and redwells made from recycled material.
  • We recycle 99% of all paper generated in our office using a secure confidential document shredding company.
  • Since 2003 our business has evolved from one which annually generated tens of millions sheets of paper to a company which produces 85% electronic images.
  • As of 2008, 99% of all administrative tasks once involving the generation of paper and storage of boxes have been converted to electronic images.
  • We use motion sensitive light switches that allow us to reduce our energy consumption when employees are out of the office. 
  • 100% of our website server power comes from renewable energy such as wind power. 
  • 90% of all waste produced by our building at 111 Congress Ave. is sorted and recycled
