Manilla and DIRECTV Team Up to Help Users Save Time and the EnvironmentItems
Manilla Partners With the Arbor Day Foundation to Plant a Tree for Every User Who Adds a DIRECTV Account to Manilla.
Manilla (http://www.manilla.com), a free service that offers the best way for consumers to manage their bills and accounts online and via mobile applications, announced an initiative with DIRECTV, one of the world’s leading providers of digital television entertainment services, to help its customers go paperless by adding their DIRECTV account to Manilla.
DIRECTV will send emails to users who still receive their bills in the mail, inviting them to go paperless by accessing their bill through Manilla. In partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation, Manilla will plant a tree for every user who adds a DIRECTV account.
The campaign couldn’t have come at a better time, considering corporations today send 85 percent of bills and statements in paper form through the postal service at an annual cost of $30 billion. And using paper mail rather than digital alternatives costs drastically more — both environmentally and financially — for the corporations.
Because they can now access, manage and file all of their bills online and in one place, more than one-third of DIRECTV customers using Manilla have switched from paper bills to online bill management. Based on both the financial and environmental benefits, Manilla and DIRECTV are launching this green campaign to encourage even more DIRECTV customers to make the same switch.
“Manilla is not only dedicated to helping our users manage their bills in one convenient location, but it is also dedicated to ensuring that our environment remains intact for future generations,” said Jim Schinella, Chief Operating Officer of Manilla.“We anticipate that through this work with DIRECTV there will be many new trees planted that people will appreciate for years to come.”
