ABOUT US
Together, we can turn footsteps into forests

Join us to help reach our initial goal of planting 5 million trees by the end of 2022, which will capture 250,000 tonnes of CO2 by 2030.

Our aim is to make it as easy as possible for people like you to have a positive impact on our planet, and on your health.

Our planet is in crisis. The 20 warmest years on record have occurred in the last 22 years. That, coupled with large-scale pollution and extensive loss of ecosystems, has pushed us to breaking point. 

We're not moving enough. Sedentary lifestyles take a huge toll on our health. Sitting too long each day makes us more likely to develop all kinds of health issues.

Meaningful steps are needed to deal with these problems, so we decided to do something. 

We're empowering individuals and businesses alike to take action, one step at a time.

Who plants our trees?

Our carefully selected tree planting partner has successfully planted over 650 million new trees since 2005.

 

That’s about one tree every second! They also manage the Treekly Forest site in Madagascar where mangrove trees are planted on your behalf.

​They are committed to using good reforestation practices in order to revitalise areas that have been destroyed by deforestation.

 

By offering the dignity of fair employment to people living in impoverished communities, they become transformational agents of global forest restoration.

Why did we choose Madagascar?

The island off the east coast of Africa is home to more than 200,000 unique plant and animal species. This means they do not exist anywhere else on the planet!

As a result of intense deforestation, only 10% of the island’s original forests are left. Because of this, we have seen biodiversity loss and the destruction of local communities.

Why Mangroves?

Native to the island of Madagascar, mangroves absorb two-to-four times more carbon than terrestrial trees, and have many other benefits to their surroundings.

The Benefits of Planting Trees

Protection of our remaining trees and extensive reforestation is crucial in restoring natural habitats and ecosystems. Reforestation also helps rebalance the Earth’s atmosphere.

Forests are widely recognised as the world’s largest natural terrestrial carbon sinks. They capture and store carbon dioxide, slowing down the accumulation of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere.

There are currently approximately 3 trillion trees on the planet. But that’s just half the number that was on the planet before humans started cutting them down. 

Around 15 billion trees are lost each year due to deforestation. 

Deforestation is removing trees which are vital in absorbing a large proportion of our CO2 emissions. It also creates a dangerous ‘feedback loop’ in which the trees being cut down release stored CO2 back into the atmosphere.
