Why You Should Plant Trees In The First Place
Trees are masters of many trades. They combat climate change, turn CO2 into vital O2 and offer habitat and food for exotic wildlife species. In addition, planting trees creates jobs for local communities in need. So yes, you are a hero when planting trees. Good work, you!
Below we have listed a few companies that plant trees for you – at no cost to you. Hence you can plant trees, but you don’t have to do it yourself, nor invest any of your hard-earned cash for paying someone to do it for you.
Take a look at the below projects, and give your favorite ones a shot. You have absolutely nothing to lose!
B’n’Tree: You Travel, We Tree. For Free.
B’n’Tree is a cooperation with the world’s largest online booking platforms, such as Booking, Skyscanner, TripAdvisor, Expedia etc. For every booking that originates on bedandtree.com, we plant a tree – without any charge to the user.
B’n’Tree is the most efficient and easiest way to plant trees for free. Humans love to travel. And B’n’Tree makes every journey a little more sustainable at no cost to the traveler.
Save bedandtree.com in your bookmarks, so planting a free tree while booking your travel arrangements literally takes one extra click only: Click on B’n’Tree in your bookmarks, click on the logo of your preferred online travel platform, and place your booking as you always would. That’s it.
To use B’n’Tree on your smartphone, learn here how to use B’n’Tree like an app. You’ll plant trees for free with one tap of your finger.
B’n’Tree can plant trees for free because it receives marketing remuneration from its partners for referring you as a client to them. This marketing money would otherwise go into TV ads, posters and banners or Google Ads – or remain in the corporations’ pockets. You must admit it is much better invested into trees, right?
Partner Booking.com alone reserves more than 1.5 million room nights – per day! If every user invested one single mouse click extra to begin their booking on bedandtree.com, climate change issues would soon be a problem of the past.
To increase your impact, share the concept with your family, friends and co-workers. Feel free to copy and paste the B’n’Tree introduction email for this.
Special Tip: If you’re not planning on going anywhere at the moment, sign up for the B’n’Tree newsletter to plant a free tree right now.

Ecosia: The Search Engine That Plants Trees For Free
Ecosia is another fantastic option to plant trees for free. The clue: Ecosia invests most of their ad-generated profits into planting trees. You don’t have to do anything at all. (Checking out the sponsored ads in the search results at times might help, though.)
If you are an internet user and use search engines at times, make sure this search engine is Ecosia. Ecosia is free to use and offers an excellent app for smartphones.
On average, every 45-50 searches plant a free tree. (Note: The tree counter in the top right counter shows how many searches you have conducted via Ecosia already. Divide this number by 50, and you know how many free trees you have planted already.)
To maximize your impact, convince your company, campus and any other internet user to make Ecosia their default search engine as well. Every computer should run Ecosia. It’s the (eco-) logical thing to do.
Currently, Google processes about 40,000 search queries – per second. Imagine all these people knew about Ecosia… we’d need a few more planets to plant all those free trees.
In case that’s still not enough for you, check out the Ecosia online shop. Not only are all shirts, jumpers and hoodies produced fairly and organically, but Ecosia also spends 100% of all profits to plant trees. That means each t-shirt you buy plants 20 trees!
If you want to learn more about Ecosia, including the reason why they make you smarter and their one disadvantage, read The Ecosia Review. The Search Engine That Makes You Smarter.

10Tree: Tree-Planting Clothing Brand
10Tree plants free trees whenever you purchase any of the cool clothing items in their online store. Yes, you do need to pay for the purchases, but the trees that are planted by 10Tree come without cost for you.
And 10Tree lives up to its name here: They not just plant one or two, but always ten trees for every product you buy! So go ahead and start your Free-Tree-Shopping-Spree!
Answers.com states there are two billion t-shirts sold every year. This number might be even higher, but if we planted 10 trees for each of those t-shirts, we had 20 billion free trees planted per year. That’s enough to offset the current global deforestation rate of 15 billion trees per year.
Thanks to 10Tree’s advanced IT you can even track the trees that you have planted and see how they are making a real-world difference. Feel-good shopping at its best.

Madera. Hammocks Need Trees!
Madera is a US brand selling outdoor gear of all kinds. The biggest part of their portfolio are hammocks. And since you need two trees to hang up your hammock, Madera plants these trees for you. Every hammock purchase plants two trees – for free, of course.
They made a really cool 58-second-video, which says it all.
In addition to planting two free trees for every sold hammock, Madera also has a few products that plant even more trees, like this 10-tree-ring. Guess how many trees will be planted when you buy one?
If you love the outdoors, you will love Madera.

The Nu+Company: Where Eating Chocolate Plants Free Trees
The Nu+Company is reinventing chocolate on many different levels. Yes, they do plant a free tree for every chocolate bar you buy. But there’s more: Nucao chocolate bars are wrapped in plastic-free packaging. Simply throw the biodegradable cellulose wrap in the compost after enjoying your bar.
On top of the outer value, the inner values convince as well. Nucao bars are made of nothing but eight organic ingredients. Unsurprisingly, all these ingredients are directly and fairly traded, preventing child and slave labor. Agreements and audits with Peruvian cocoa farmers ensure sustainable farming practices.
Processed sugars are substituted with coconut nectar, avoiding sugar highs as well as the subsequent lows. So nucao chocolate bars are not just great for the environment, but also great for you.
Nucao chocolate is already super popular and widely available throughout Europe. Should you live outside the reach of the tree-planting chocolate empire, reach out to them to request delivery to your place. Or convince your favorite chocolate dealer to plant a tree for you next time you stock up on supply.
Oh, and: The nu+company is selling protein shake powder as well. Same deal: Purely plant-based, plastic-free packaging, and one free tree planted for every product sold. Feeling good never felt so good!

Sabaidee: Making You Feel Good. And Planting Free Trees.
