In support of Earth Day, Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) announced the start of the Online Statements Sweepstakes to encourage customers to switch to paperless statements for eligible accounts.

Customers have the chance to win $25,000 or one of 20 $1,000 prizes. In addition to the sweepstakes, Wells Fargo, in partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation, is planting 50,000 trees at California's Six Rivers National Forest and distributing tree seedlings to residents in Joplin, Missouri.

"In appreciation of customers who choose paperless banking options whenever possible, we're pleased to support the planting of trees, especially in areas of need," said Martha Smolen, senior vice president at Wells Fargo Internet Services Group. "The trees planted at Six Rivers National Forest are expected to contribute to an improved ecosystem in the forest for years to come." Six Rivers National Forest extends 140 miles south from the Oregon-California boarder, crossing through or near the Smith, Klamath, Eel, Trinity, Van Duzen and Mad rivers.

Also, Wells Fargo is a partner in the Foundation's Joplin Tree Recovery Campaign, to help the people of Joplin, Missouri, restore the community trees lost due to last year's devastating tornado. The Foundation and Wells Fargo volunteers will distribute tree seedlings to Joplin residents on Saturday, April 21, 2012.

Online Statements Sweepstakes

Now through May 31, 2012, for each eligible statement Wells Fargo customers switch to online only statement delivery, customers will automatically be entered for a chance to win $25,000 or one of 20 $1,000 prizes. Eligible statements include those from these personal accounts: checking and savings, credit card, mortgage, home equity lines and loans, personal loans and student loans. No purchase or payment of any kind is necessary to enter or win this sweepstakes. Complete details and rules for the Online Statements Sweepstakes are available at http://www.wellsfargo.com/springsweeps.

According to December 2011 estimates using the Environmental Paper Network Paper Calculator and provided statements were not printed at home, Wells Fargo customers have helped save over 223,000 trees by turning off 649 million paper statements. "This Earth Day and every day, we encourage all of our customers to switch to paperless statements and notifications for the positive environmental impact, as well as the convenience and increased security," added Martha Smolen.
