plant trees for a

green & sustainable planet

But don’t stop there… Additionally we make it easy to support climate projects in developing countries and give tips for an eco-friendly lifestyle. This way you offset your carbon footprint and empower proven solutions for climate change.

Do you want to help tackle climate change?

Research from the UN shows that 64% of people in the world see climate change as a global emergency. And there is not one simple solution. The government, the business community and ourselves all play an important role in many different ways.

But how can you as an individual contribute maximally to the solution of such a complex problem?

For less than a Netflix subscription, Alive to Earth supports all the most effective solutions to tackle climate change:

Plant trees TO offset your carbon footprint

Planting trees is the best way to offset your carbon emissions and restore biodiversity. Alive to Earth plants trees in reserves in Tanzania in collaboration with the Friends of Usambara Society foundation. This not only helps nature and the climate, but the local people as well.

Reduce your environmental impact

With our current lifestyle we need at least two planets like earth to sustain ourselves. The good news is we have all the tools to change that:

Every two weeks you receive EcoTips (useful articles, e-books, tools and videos) that help you live an eco-friendly lifestyle. There are even tips that are not only better for the planet, but also for your well-being and wallet.

Support climate projects in developing countries

With the money left over after your trees are planted, we finance projects that reduce carbon emissions in developing countries. All projects help the local population and carry the Gold Standard certificate. For example installing solar panels and wind turbines, less polluting stoves and sustainable waste processing.

Planting trees is not just about OFFSETTING carbon emissions

Planting trees is one of the best ways to tackle climate change, especially when you reduce your carbon emissions as well. Trees absorb CO2 and release oxygen, which reduces greenhouse gasses. But planting trees with Alive to Earth has even more advantages:

Poverty Reduction

The local people plant the trees and receive a stable income

Prevention of soil erosion

The roots of the trees prevent soil erosion and landslides

Trees with a high survival rate

The trees are expertly planted with a high survival rate of 92%

Education

Children learn about nature and plant trees for local school projects

Food for local people

Fruit and nut trees help farmers and provide food for the local population

Recovery of biodiversity

Many different local species are planted to restore biodiversity

Trees that grow well-protected

We plant trees in protected reserves so that they grow as long as possible

Accountability

After your trees are planted you receive their exact location and photos

Common questions

We plant trees every spring and autumn. This way they get enough rain and they grow well.

As soon as your trees have been planted, you will receive an e-mail from us. The email links to a page where you can see your trees and their location.

After about 10 years, your trees have absorbed enough carbon (about 150 kg) so that your emissions offset.

For each tree we plant, you get the coordinates and also a unique image of where the tree was planted. This way you have proof of where the trees are.

In addition, we work with partners in Tanzania who are validated according to the  CAF international quality mark and who have a transparent and responsible way of working.

In addition to planting trees, we also support projects that reduce carbon emissions at the source. All projects help the local people and carry the Gold Standard certificate.

Examples are the installation of solar panels and wind turbines, less polluting stoves and sustainable waste processing. We will announce the specific projects for 2022 here later this year.
