Our planet is heating up…
The extreme effects of climate change, such as storms, floods and droughts, are already much more intense than scientists predicted. That’s why more and more people, and probably you too, feel the need to stop this.
Today’s climate change is caused by our carbon emissions. So the only real solution is to reduce and offset these emissions so that you live carbon neutral and climate neutral. But how do you do this best? That is the question Alive to Earth created a solution for…
My carbon emissions exacerbate climate change
I live environmentally friendly and carbon neutral
Our complete solution
We offset your carbon footprint by planting trees. This way you easily and responsibly live a carbon neutral life. But Alive to Earth exists to help you contribute to a green, sustainable earth in the most complete way. So we don’t stop there…
For a complete solution, we also help you live an environmentally friendly life with our EcoTips. And with the profits we realize sustainability projects in developing countries. This way you make an optimal contribution to address climate change.

Because climate change is a problem that has been created through countless actions from billions of people (though some more than others) it is easy to fall into the trap of thinking that what we do as individuals doesn’t matter. But the collective is only made up of individuals. It is each individual, company and government that will have to become more environmentally friendly in order to solve climate change.
Then of course it is easy to think, this individual, company, or government isn’t doing his or her part, so why should I do my part? Well, as more and more people and businesses become environmentally friendly, it becomes less and less acceptable for others to not do their part. There is a network effect. Therefore your small (or big) contributions truly make a difference!
As long as carbon is offset responsibly, for instance by carefully planting indigenous trees, it is a really great for the planet. There is less carbon in the air and nature revives.
However, it can not be the only solution to climate change. We also need to live in a more environmentally friendly way and reduce our carbon emissions. Simply because at some point in the (far) future there won’t be enough land to plant trees.
Carbon offsets also give us more time to complete the transition to a completely sustainable society. And this time is absolutely needed, because the transition is a massive undertaking.
That’s why Alive to Earth offers a complete solution: offsetting your carbon footprint responsibly while helping you live in a more environmentally friendly way as well.
We will certainly add locations in the future, but they will likely be in developing countries.
To tackle climate change, it does not matter much in which country the trees are located. But if you want to plant a lot of trees, in some countries, such as the Netherlands, this is a lot more complicated on a large scale than in countries with more space, such as Tanzania.
In addition, planting trees gives much more benefit to the local people in a developing country. There it provides food and income, while this is needed a lot less in the Western world.
We plant your trees in the spring and autumn. In this way the weather conditions are ideal and they can grow well.
As soon as your trees have been planted, we will update your profile page and you will receive a message via e-mail.
At Alive to Earth, our goal is to plant as many trees as possible in a responsible manner. We are therefore not after high margins or a lot of overhead, but prefer to simply plant a many more trees. We are ‘mission driven’.
It is also not necessary to grow trees until they are large, but they can be planted quite young with the same result. This saves a lot of work, space and costs.
Alive to Earth is a social enterprise. That means we are technically a business, but reinvest all profits in sustainability projects for local communities. To reinforce this social character, we are working to get a B Corp certification soon.
Once your trees have been planted you receive proof of the planting in the form of photos of your trees, the precise location on google maps and a unique certificate. This way you can be sure that your trees have actually been planted.
