Branson Bank held their 5th annual, Go Green Earth Day Celebration, helping unload and shred over 8,500 lbs. of old financial documents. Branson Bank enlisted the help of Cintas, a document shredding company, and Tantone Industries, a local non-profit, that provides meaningful employment to adults with disabilities, to help facilitate the FREE community event that was held from 11am to 1pm at the Falls Parkway Branson Bank location.

 

“Our annual Go Green event is always well received by the community,” said Lyndi Carnelison, Community Relations Coordinator. “It’s a service that fosters safe disposal of important documents, while encouraging environmentally sound initiatives such as E-Statements.”

 

Consumer fraud and identity theft are becoming an epidemic for those in the United States and during their event, staff members made an effort to spread the word about switching to E-Statements, an electronic method of receiving bank statements via a safe and secure online banking connection. By utilizing E-Statements instead of the old, costly, paper statements, you not only help save in paper waste, but you better protect yourself from identity theft and fraud.
