Planting 1 million trees by referring friends.

A friend and I started this little side project to help people plant trees while in lockdown. It was called Plantyflix back then. The whole point was to help keep people thinking about the environment and give people a way to take action on this bigger crisis we still face stuck at home on the couch.

Little did we think that we'd even plant a hundred trees, let alone thousands! But here we are. Super happy with how it went. However, the question is now — how can we plant even more trees? And how can we do it in such a way that encourages even more people to plant for every tree planted?

Enter the Treeferral referral program.

The aim is in the name. The whole point of Treeferral is one awesome little tree planting referral program for trees.

As you may have read above already, you plant trees, you refer a friend, and you earn 40% of every payment they make for planting trees for as long as they're signed up. Plus, we'll plant 10x trees for your mate to get them started.

It's quite literally a triple win. Win for you, win for your friend, and of course a win for nature and the planet, woo!

So come and join us! Let's plant forests and more forests together and reach the goal of planting 1 million trees. Let's go!

FAQ

Is this a carbon offset?

Unfortunately not, planting trees with Treeferral is not a certified carbon offset. However, planting trees does definitely help to reduce greenhouse emissions in our atmosphere. This can't be claimed as a verified offset though.

If you want to try to plant the amount of trees needed to match the footprint of your lifestyle, then go wild! On average a mature tree absorbs between 14-22kg (31-48lbs) of CO2 each year. You can calculate your footprint using the WWF carbon footprint calculator and then divide tonnes of your carbon footprint from the calculator by the above.

For reference, here are a few quick calculations for number of trees to plant based on per capita averages for people living these countries:
~422 trees / year = France (5.2 tonnes CO2 each year)
~534 trees / year = Germany (9.1 tonnes CO2 each year)
~968 trees / year = USA (16.6 tonnes CO2 each year)
~3,082 trees / year = Qatar (38.0 tonnes CO2 each year)

If you're looking for really great certified carbon offsets you can go to Nul. Full disclosure, I'm a co-founder in this as well :)

Do I need to be a subscriber to become an affiliate?

Yes, you'll need to plant at least 1 tree per month yourself. You'll receive an invitation when you sign up. An affiliate account is separate to your subscription. You'll have a unique link that tracks who signs up. Go crazy sharing your link to the world to earn and encourage others to start planting.

Or you can apply to join the affiliate program. Tell me why you'd like the join the program and about your potential social reach. I'm looking for people who're genuinely keen to be apart of Treeferral, help spread the word and plant lots of trees from their referrals along the way.

And sometimes, you may be invited to join as well :)

Where do you plant trees?

With help from Eden Reforestation Projects and other reforestation projects, your trees are planted across the globe in Madagascar, Haiti, Nepal, Indonesia, Mozambique, Kenya, and various other countries.

Where does my money go?

50% goes directly to planting trees! 🌳 🌳 🌳

40% is donated to a range of different climate projects and organisations working towards real solutions on this issue. Or if someone signs up to plant trees through an affiliates link, the affiliate will receive this amount instead (only if there is one, of course).
Affiliates help spread the word so we can plant more and more trees! This what what Treeferral is all about. Creating a massive community of people encouraging others to plant trees and getting rewarded for their efforts.
