LiveOffice Recognizes Earth Day by Restoring 125,000 Square Feet of Rainforest

541 Million Workers Worldwide Who Print as Few as 5 Emails per Day Consume More Than 6,000 Trees a Day, More Than 2 Million Trees Every Year

TORRANCE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 16, 2007 -- LiveOffice Corporation's Managed Messaging Services, the leading provider of on-demand messaging security, archiving and compliance solutions, today announced that in honor of Earth Day the company will help restore 125,000 square feet of rainforest through its philanthropic contribution to the Arbor Day Foundation.

With Earth Day approaching on April 22, corporations are taking a close look at how the basic, everyday habits of their employees directly impact the environment. "Today, you can't be a responsible citizen without recognizing the effects our actions are having on the planet," said Matt Smith, president, LiveOffice. "Take emails for example -- think about how many of those we print out in hard copy each day and the affect that must be having on our forests."

The Radicati Group estimates that approximately 541 million workers worldwide rely on email communications to conduct business, and each worker sends and receives, on average, 133 messages per day. "If each of these 541 million workers prints and stores as few as five emails per day -- it would consume more than 6,000 trees a day. That adds up to more than two million trees every year," said Smith. "The good news is that there are options for preserving emails that don't require printing hard copies. With digital archiving technology, companies can archive messages online or offline, for as long as they like, and still allow their employees to access the messages any time necessary."

According to the National Academy of Science, every year 20 million hectares of rainforest -- an area the size of the states of New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts and New Jersey combined -- are cut down, releasing millions of tons of carbon emissions into the atmosphere. The good news is that tree conservation can have a significant and positive impact on the environment as a whole. According to the Arbor Day Foundation, "over the course of 50 years, a single tree can generate $31,250 of oxygen, provide $62,000 worth of air pollution control, recycle $37,500 worth of water, and control $31,500 worth of soil erosion."
