Plant With Purpose
Based in the United States, Carbonfund.org is one of the leading organizations that fight against climate change, making it simple and affordable for any individual, company, or organization to reduce their carbon footprint.
In their journey to fight against climate change, the core activities that Carbon Fund helps to eliminate carbon footprint are: using energy efficiently, using renewable energy, and planting trees.
Plant trees to remove CO2, help the communities and wildlife
Each planting journey to recover tropical rain forests of Carbon Fund organization is remarkable. They are currently partnering with REDD+ in 5 tropical forest conservation projects in Brazil.
The goals of those forestry projects are:
- Eliminate CO2 emissions
- Reduce the impact of climate change
- Protect habitat for threatened and endangered species.
- Improve the water quality in the area
- Keep topsoil in place and control erosion at bay
- Support the communities by establishing alternative sources of income and employment opportunities
- Educate the communities on protecting the forests and how to get health/economic benefits from the forests
Why we support Carbon Fund?
Trees silently support and enhance the life quality of communities and local wildlife. However, deforestation still happens year by year. Besides, deforestation accounts for 20% of global carbon emissions. We should take action now to reduce CO2 emissions by planting more new trees and conserving biodiversity.
Tenere Team notices that Carbon Fund is supporting many significant reforestation projects from a trustworthy third-party, REDD+. That’s why we want to give our hands to support Carbon Fund as well. Let’s mitigate the deforestation pressure by planting more trees through Tenere Team and Carbon Fund.
Tree-Nation was founded in 2006 and today has more than 410000 citizens working together to change the world. They develop and use lots of innovative tools that are now widely utilized by other ENGOs. The virtual tree, online forest, and a myriad of other environmental software are among them.
In 2017, Tree-Nation officially became an official UNEP partner, they have evolved to increase 4000 companies and 200,000 users to plant more than 7 million trees in different reforestation projects. This project is responsible for about 17% of all Climate Change emissions.
97 Planting Projects On 6 Continents
Tree-Nation currently has a huge team of citizens and company partners working on more than 30 reforestation projects on 6 continents. They work hard to invent software tools in order to provide a unique technological solution aimed at breaking the distance between remote projects and their sponsors in developed countries. They focus on planting new trees to protect the environment and provide homes for various forms of life, cooling our climate and improving our soil.
Why We Work With Them
Planting new trees is a powerful way for combating climate change. Tree-Nation works with the scientific community as well as company partners in areas they work in and takes a sustainable approach toward reforestation and poverty alleviation. The organization has more than 300 different species available to plant because each country needs different tree species. Tree-Nation researches carefully to make sure all user's impacts are great and helpful to the environment.
We’re happy to be working with the Tree-Nation, and we think you will feel the same.
Plant For The Planet
Plant-for-the-Planet is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness about climate change and global justice among children and adults. They also work to plant trees, which they see as a practical and symbolic step in the fight against climate change. Plant for the Planet's experience working with children is motivating, and it will inspire future generations to come out and plant trees.
Trillion Tree Campaign
Trees bring us valuable time as we make the transition to a cleaner future. Plant-for-the-Planet's vision is the world's greatest restoration initiative, with a goal of 1,000 billion extra trees. As of June 19, 2021, 32 million trees have been donated worldwide, with 167 projects.
Moreover, they launched the Plant-for-the-Planet App in 2018, an interactive tool to help people plant trees throughout the planet. The App is a free open-source platform that provides donors with transparency and confidence. It allows small and large tree-planting organizations to raise funds globally without having to build their own IT infrastructure. And it allows them to track tree-planting activities using a combination of on-the-ground measurements and satellite data.
Why we choose to work with them
Corporate social responsibility is a critical component of combating climate catastrophe. Plant-for-the-Planet deserves praise for offering a simple, scalable, and effective solution: tree planting. Their tree-planting project can register and begin collecting money after a verification process.
We can search for our favorite projects, donate trees, give trees as gifts, participate in competitions, and register our own trees. We will also contribute to the empowerment of children and young people as well as the global restoration of ecosystems through trees through Plant-for-the-Planet.
Eden Reforestation Projects
Eden Reforestation Projects is a non-profit that aims to reduce poverty and improve the health of the world’s forests. Eden employs impoverished villagers to plant, grow, and protect forests in countries across Africa, Asia, and Central America.
Eden Reforestation Projects have been recognized as one of the most cost-effective organizations of its kind thanks to its low overhead costs and economically sustainable model. To date, the non-profit has planted more than 348 million trees and helped reduce localized poverty in regions across the developing world.
The team at Eden knows that their work needs to be sustained over the long haul if it’s going to make a real difference. The non-profit aims to plant half a billion trees each year by 2025 and employ tens of thousands of impoverished people in the process.
Working with those affected
Eden employs local villagers in the regions they plant trees in. These regions are usually impoverished and the income the villagers receive allows them to provide for their families while also giving them a vested interest in protecting the forests they plant.
Restoring forests allows animals to return to their natural habitats and improves the quality of the topsoil thanks to restored rain patterns. This, in turn, increases the crop yield of people living nearby, which increases their income and boosts the local economy.
As poverty decreases in a region, the likelihood that villagers will be forced to engage in deforestation activities for profit is also reduced.
Why we choose to work with this project
We wanted to work with Eden Reforestation Projects because they’re a leading non-profit with a sustainable approach to reforestation and poverty alleviation. Eden understands that the only way to keep forests safe is to involve the local communities in the regions affected by deforestation.
We’re proud to support Eden Reforestation Projects and hope you will be too!
8 Billion Trees
8 Billion Trees is a social enterprise that seeks to offset the damage caused by human beings on the planet around us. If 8 billion people can break our ecosystem, then 8 billion trees can fix it.
Through their fundraising efforts, store, and partnerships with other organizations, 8 Billion Trees has been able to plant more than 1,250,000 trees around the world and conserve 166,000 acres of forest.
But they still have a long way to go - they won’t stop until they’ve planted eight billion new trees. And they’ll probably keep going after that, too.
Fixing the world, one tree at a time
8 Billion Trees works with projects around the world with a focus on making a positive difference through tree planting. They monitor their tree planting operations through photos and geotags which allow them to ‘see’ their trees during planting and check up on them later.
The organization also protects animals by supporting vets and animal sanctuaries in areas affected by deforestation. Thousands of species are at risk of losing their homes because of logging and other industrial activities, but they can be saved by regenerating forests.
8 Billion Trees is classified as a social enterprise, which means they engage in commercial activities but reinvest all of their revenue back into the goal of planting trees.
Why we choose to work with them
The passion for action that spurred the founder of 8 Billion Trees to give up everything he owns and dedicate his life to reforestation can be found in all of us.
Planting trees has the potential to stop humanity from destroying our planet and here is an organization that is more than happy to get up and start taking action.
Arbor Day Foundation
The Arbor Day Foundation was founded in the 1970s with the mission of restoring the world’s forests and protecting biodiversity in at-risk areas. The foundation seeks to build stronger communities to protect the wildlife and forests around them and inspire new generations and old to take action against deforestation.
The Arbor Day Foundation works with local councils to plant community trees that make living spaces greener, air cleaner, and help stormwater runoff. Their aim is to plant 100 million trees by 2022. They’ll seek the help of a whopping 5 million tree planters to inspire a whole generation to take care of mother nature.
Building community wellbeing with tree planting
Trees are an essential part of life in the city and the countryside and the effects they have on our mental and physical wellbeing shouldn’t be underestimated. The Arbor Day Foundation believes in building stronger communities through planting trees and the positive effects this will have on people’s health.
The foundation works with volunteers, corporations, schools, and more to inspire people to get out there and plant some trees, wherever they can. They even give people 10 free trees to plant in their yard, such is their belief in the benefits of community tree planting.
The Arbor Day Foundation also partners with businesses to encourage them in their corporate social responsibility efforts through their Evergreen Alliance.
Why we choose them
The Arbor Day Foundation has proven its stripes as being committed to encouraging local communities to make a positive impact through planting trees. The foundation’s aims are centered around working with younger generations to inspire millions of people to help heal our planet.
We’re very happy to be partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation and we think you will be too!
TreeSisters is a non-profit organization based in the UK. It plants over 20 million trees across 12 locations in Brazil, Borneo, Cameroon, India, Kenya, Mozambique, Madagascar, Nepal, and West Papua.

This project makes five intentional choices, including reveal, embrace, embody, activate, and shine. We’re happy to be working with the TreeSisters, and we think you will be as well.
One Tree Planted
One Tree Planted is a non-profit based in Vermont, US, that runs tree planting projects in North and South America, as well as Africa and Asia. The organization recognizes six key pillars of how tree planting helps the world including air, water, biodiversity, social, health, and climate.
One Tree Planted pools donations and allocates them across several projects around the world aimed at restoring forests and helping local communities improve their livelihoods in a sustainable way. The organization takes a grass-roots approach and has planted more than 4 million trees around the world.
Dedicated projects with a global reach
The non-profit works in Africa to restore soil, rebuild habitats, and improve the lives of local communities who rely on the forest for their income and survival.
In North America, they've planted trees in 12 US states to help repair the damage caused by wildfires in California and elsewhere, as well as that caused by industry and resource extraction.
Their projects in Latin America are helping to restore tropical forests and encouraging sustainable agricultural techniques like agroforestry. This ensures that local communities will protect the trees in their region for generations to come.
In Vietnam, One Tree Planted works with local partners to restore bountiful forests that more than 25 million people rely on for sustenance.
One constant theme in One Tree Planted's projects is that they work with experienced local partners in the regions they operate. This ensures that local communities are involved in the tree planting process and benefit from it.
Why we choose to work with them
One Tree Planted is a perfect example of how ordinary people can make a big impact on the world. The non-profit organization has taken time to partner with local communities and ensure that their tree planting efforts benefit people in underdeveloped regions.
The Nature Conservancy
The Nature Conservancy (TNC) was founded in the US in 1951 and today has more than a million members. The organization works to tackle climate change, protect land and water by fighting for the establishment of nature reserves, and build healthier cities with minimal carbon footprints.
A large part of The Nature Conservancy’s work is unlocking billions of dollars of funding for conservation projects. The organization recently fought to get an area of marine land the size of Great Britain protected off the coast of the Seychelles.
As far as the projects we work with go, The Nature Conservancy is one of the heavy-hitters. The group has been on the front line of conservation work since Harry S. Truman was the president of the United States. Let that sink in for a moment.
79 countries across six continents
The Nature Conservancy currently has a team of more than 400 scientists working on 79 projects across six continents. These projects incluide water and food sustainability programs, healthy urban planning initiatives, and
TNC has a long list of acheivements under its belt, from their first big win protecting a wooden ravine outside New York in 1956 to more recent achievements like working with China to influence their national conservation plan and protecting 19 million acres of Pacific coast from logging.
One of the major projects TNC is currently undergoing is to unlock $1.6 billion in funding to help protect the world’s oceans. This is part of a TED Audatious project that was announced at TED in Vancuver in 2019.
Why we choose to work with them
The Nature Conservancy is one of the world’s leading conservation organisations and has a proven track record of getting results. Their approach consists of working with leading scientists and local, national, and international institutions to protect land and water and move funding to where it’s needed most.
The world needs organisations like this if we’re going to preserve our planet going into the future. We’re very proud to be working with TNC.
Trees4Trees is a non-profit foundation that grows high-value seedlings and gives them to impoverished farmers for free. They also train the farmers to grow and cultivate the trees, as well as good forestry practices and the benefits of keeping nature in balance around them.
The organization aims to help the environment while improving the lives of impoverished people. Their actions go for forests, while also resulting in a self-sustaining and economically beneficial impact in the communities they operate within.
Improving lives through tree planting
Trees4Trees give farmers high-value species like mango, mahogany, and albizia trees that can be cultivated to provide income for farmer’s families. They’ve planted more than 1.7 million trees so far and helped more than 15,000 families stay above the breadline.
The non-profit also works with companies to ensure corporate social responsibility is realized. Corporations taking steps to help in the sustainable development of our planet’s forests is an essential step towards living in a brighter, greener world.
Trees4Trees puts an emphasis on educating the farmers they work with in sustainable forestry practices and proper cultivation techniques so they can maximize their profits without hurting the environment. This helps farmers to provide for their families year after year and reduces the negative impact of agriculture on forests.
Why we choose to work with them
Reforestation is important, but so is ending poverty. Being able to do both at the same time is a big bonus and that’s exactly what Trees4Trees has set out to do. The non-profit’s education-based approach towards sustainable reforestation directly improves the lives of impoverished farmers and ensures that they take care of the trees they’re given for years to come.
This approach is really effective and it’s one that we’re proud to stand behind. We’re sure you’ll feel the same way as you learn more about the good this organization is doing.
Trees for the Future
Trees for the Future aims to end hunger and poverty by training farmers to regenerate their land. The organization runs four-year training programs for farmers to learn sustainable and more profitable farming techniques that preserve the land for generations to come.
Trees for the Future’s solution to poverty is an interesting one. It’s centered around their Forest Garden Program - a simple, replicable, and scalable approach that has been shown to work with great success.
Planting trees to improve livelihoods
The Forest Garden Program gets farmers to plant thousands of fast-growing trees and bushes that bring nutrients back to the soil, making it much easier to grow fruit and vegetables. This boosts their family’s income and gives future generations a scalable farm to work with.
What’s best? This begins to take shape in less than a year. After the fourth year of the Forest Garden Training program, farmers will have a diversified income-producing crop that will also allow them to meet their family’s nutritional needs. A graduation ceremony is held and farmers never have to spend a penny of their own money throughout the process.
Trees for the Future has already helped thousands of people in sub-Saharan Africa and has planted millions of trees in the process. They currently have offices in Kenya, Senegal, Uganda, and Tanzania, as well as six training sites across these countries.
Why we choose to work with them
Their sustainable model combines environmental protection with poverty alleviation in a way that ensures the land is protected for years to come. This, in turn, brings more money into local economies and helps to break the cycle of poverty that grips so many.
The Forest Garden Program puts the power back into the hands of farmers and their families and will help to regenerate land in some of the most barren regions of the world. Their solution to ending poverty is unique and effective.
WeForest is a non-profit with nine projects spanning six countries. The organization works to restore forests, protect water sources, and partner with local villages to reduce poverty through agroforestry.
WeForest partners with local, national, and global initiatives, as well as universities and other reforestation organizations to build a network for tackling climate change through reforestation.
More than 2 billion hectares of land have been identified as suitable for reforestation. Planting new forests here will have a cooling effect on the world’s climate and could help us to avert a climate disaster in the near future.
WeForest’s goal is to plant millions of trees in these areas while engaging local communities and the scientific community to build a sustainable network of passionate environmental defenders.
In Brazil, WeForest is aiming to plant 303,000 trees to help restore the Atlantic Forest which is under severe threat from unsustainable agriculture practices. Their reforestation efforts are helping endangered species, like the black lion tamarin, to thrive in the area once again.
In Ethiopia Desa’a, WeForest has planted close to 4 million trees and restored almost 4,000 ha of forest. This forest is at serious risk of desertification and creating a green wall is paramount to stopping the desert from absorbing what remains of this once-huge green space.
WeForest is continually launching new projects and successfully completing their objectives. The organization takes a hands-on approach to reforestation and understands the importance of sustainable involvement from local communities.
Why we choose to work with them
WeForest has the drive and passion to turn degraded areas into lush forests once again. The organization works with the scientific community as well as local partners in areas they work in and takes a sustainable approach toward reforestation and poverty alleviation.
We’re happy to be working with WeForest. We know you will be too!
World Wildlife Fund (WWF)
The WWF (World Wildlife Fund) likely needs no introduction for most people. The non-profit with its panda logo is widely recognized as one of the most influential conservation organisations in the world.
The WWF Forests Practice is a sub-branch of the organisation that works to protect forested areas from logging and development. The organisation recognises the need for humans to use timber products but seeks to improve management of our forests so we can use them in a sustainable way.
The WWF also works with businesses to encourage sustainable industry practices and transparency in their actions. Businesses can make a huge difference by making their supply lines forest friendly and ensuring they meet their zero-deforestation commitments.
Working to fix the bigger picture
The World Wildlife Fund works directly with governments and international institutions to influence environmental and climate policy. This includes supporting governments to adapt their development plans and encouraging more investment in forest protection.
But don’t go thinking the WWF is only working in the corridors of capital cities- they also work directly within affected communities to ensure solutions are locally led and sustainably managed over the long term.
The non-profit aims to end deforestation by 2030, ensure the world’s forests are managed effectively, and restore forests that have been ravaged by logging and other industrial activities.
The World Wildlife Fund is campaigning for the future of our planet so we can enjoy the many incredible bounties of nature for generations to come.
Why we choose to work with them
The WWF is one of the most recognized authorities in the world of conservation and forest protection. Their ability to influence government policy in key decisions affecting forests makes them an essential component of the fight to stop deforestation.
The WWF also works with local communities to ensure solutions and are led by the people in affected areas and not by someone in an office 3,000 miles away.
