You suck.

Yeah, we said it.

Plant 8 trees each mo. and before long you’ll sequester 9,600 pounds of CO2 every year.

*Translation:* You just kept 5,000 pounds of coal from being burned! Love you 3,000.

Clean up your act.

Get your Captain Planet on. We’ve had enough of this nasty air & water pollution. Trees naturally filter air & water. With our powers combined, we can clean them up.

Everybody matters.

Even our furry friends. Forests are home to 80% of land plant and animal species.

Global tree count is down 46% and these furry folks could use some love. We focus planting in biodiversity “hot spots.” Join us. We’ll be fur-ever yours.

FAQ

 

+ What's the catch, yo?

Yo, back at ya. We're on a mission to plant 1 million trees around the world every month and we wanted to make it as easy as possible for engaged citizens like you to join in.

For free members, we plant 12 trees every year for you, forever. We gotta pay for those trees somehow. So, we send you stories from mission-aligned companies. Think: waste-free products, renewable energy companies, and other folks making the world a darn better place.

Tree Baller memberships start at $4/mo. We use the membership fee to plant trees while offering you extra benefits to make your membership more than worth it.

*As digital privacy advocates ourselves, emails will always come from us and we’ll never sell your info to anyone. We’re planeteers, not profiteers.

+ What do I need to sign up?

A valid email address. And a name. This means Arya Stark cannot join no matter how many times she asks.

+ Do you sell my email?

Emails ALWAYS come from us.

As digital privacy advocates ourselves, we’ll never sell your info to anyone. We’re planeteers, not profiteers.

+ I'm not a hippie. Can I still join?

We don't care if you're a hippie, heppie, hoppie, huppie, or even happie.

If you want to plant trees, you can join. We don't discriminate, except against jerk-faces.

+ Can I plant more than 1 tree each month?

Fo' sho. We call those members Tree Ballers. You get a digital Tree Baller badge and other perks.

Tree Ballers can level up their membership and plant 4, 8, or 12 trees every month.

Pssst. Did you know if you planted 12 trees every month, that's 1,440 trees in the next 10 years. How's that for a legacy?

+ Where do you plant trees?

We work with the top tree planting orgs around the world, who've been on the ground planting trees and working with local communities for years.

Primary planting locations are in Madagascar, Nepal, Haiti, Ethiopia, Indonesia, and Mozambique.

Each project is coordinated by a country liason who partners with villages. The villages manage the tree nurseries and forests and are dedicated to restoring their forests. They plant native species.

We send members a Transparency Report with numbers and locations of trees planted.

+ Why trees?

Trees are superheros.

Our ecosystems are falling out of balance, with deforestation a significant cause.

It's clear planting trees around the world is one small step we can take to help heal the planet.

David Attenborough, Planet Earth narrator, has said, "The diversity of the world's forests is falling at an alarming rate, and that is because of us."

Indeed, about 9 species go extinct every day. Every. Day.

We believe we can help change that—as one piece of the global effort to replant Mama Earth.

Go to the Why Trees page and get your learn on.

+ What is a Transparency Report?

We send our members a report to let them know how many trees we've planted, where those trees are getting planted, and the collective impact of their memberships.

+ Who are you?

We're a small team of mission-driven entrepreneurs.

We want to make it as easy as possible to do make the world a little healthier and a little happier.

Over the past 10 years, we've collectively helped feed children with malnutrition, installed dozens of solar panels, and offset emissions. Now, we want to plant 1 million trees every month.

+ Are you a non-profit?

We're currently filing for 501(c)(3) nonprofit status, but we don't think Mama Earth would want us to wait any longer.

+ How will you deter the White Walkers from killing all the trees?

Seriously?!?

Everyone knows White Walkers are big fans of trees.

+ But seriously, isn't the Earth going to die anyway?

Maybe.

But former Poet Laureate W.S. Merwin wrote:

"On the last day of the world / I would plant a tree."

Damn, that's deep.

We're siding with Merwin. We're choosing hope over despair. We favor action over complaints. Giving over taking. Even if it were the last day of the world.
