Trees are vital. As the biggest plants on the planet, they give us oxygen, store carbon, stabilise the soil and give life to the world’s wildlife. They also provide us with the materials for tools and shelter. So, how about if you could plant a tree for free, every day?
Every Friday I share one of my favourite finds of the week — a website, tool or an app that has impressed me.

Plant a Tree for Free, Every Day
I’ve written before about How to use Carbon Offsetting to reduce your Carbon Footprint.
So, when I found the Treeapp website, I was intrigued by its premise to help mitigate your carbon footprint by planting trees.
Every day, from within Treeapp, you pick a sustainability project you would like to support.
You can then view a message from your tree’s sponsor. The whole process typically takes 60 seconds or less.
Once complete, you tap to plant a tree for the day.
The app allows you to view your global impact, and how the trees you’re planting affect your carbon footprint.
It’s very simple. Treeapp is very elegant and I’ve found it inspiring to learn how their tree planting projects create local jobs opportunities, reduce air, water and soil pollution and bring communities together.
What’s more, as someone who likes to think of themselves as an ethical consumer, I’ve found the sponsors that Treeapp brings to my attention very useful.
I especially like the feature in Treeapp which allows you to refer back to previous sponsors. This makes it easy for me to buy from the sponsors when the time is right for me.
It’s an app that allows you to plant a tree for free, every day. It’s awesome!
