Reforesting the planet (one purchase at a time)
TREE PLAN IS UNIQUE.
Tree Plan is unique in that we rely not only on individual donations for the planting of trees, but we also partner with businesses all around the world to create marketing campaigns. Each campaign encourages environmentally conscious consumers to purchase products that support the planting of new trees. One purchase equals one new tree planted. Buy products, plant trees! The key factor is that the consumer is not paying for the tree; it is paid for by the company that partnered with Tree Plan.
CAN ANY BUSINESS PARTNER WITH TREE PLAN?
Most business partners will be accepted, with some exceptions. If your company is known for contributing to pollution in the environment, then we are not a match and will not partner with you. We will not allow businesses to use Tree Plan for “green-washing.” Green-washing is when a company creates a thin veneer of environmental friendliness while adopting practices that in reality are harmful to the environment.
Tree Plan works with a variety of partners! From a theatre company that plants a new tree for every ticket sale to large multinational companies offering to plant trees for each business-to-business deal. We work with a diverse mixture of companies all of whom support our mission.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Do you want to plant a tree for each purchase by one of your clients? Do you want to plant trees in exchange for volunteer work? Do you want to plant trees to attract new employees or social media sign ups?
Select the number of trees and through Tree Plan trees will be planted by one of our UN supported tree planting organizations somewhere in the world. It’s as simple as that!
DO BUSINESSES REALLY WANT TO SUPPORT NATURE?
Businesses are owned by individuals, and many people truly want to invest in the future of our planet! Tree Plan provides just one method for businesses to have a voice and to reach environmentally conscious consumers. Also, Tree Plan is surprisingly cost-effective, allowing businesses to make a huge environmental impact at relatively low costs! Saving the planet and successful branding, all 100% deductible!
SUPPORTING TREE PLAN IS 100% DEDUCTIBLE FOR BUSINESSES
Tree Plan is a for-profit sustainable business. This means that partnering business can fully deduct their support from their taxable income. With normal donations, companies can deduct up to 50%, if they’re fortunate. Tree Plan, however, is 100% deductible.
How does this work? Businesses that offer to “plant a tree for every purchase” don't send money to Tree Plan in the form of donations. Instead, they’re invoiced for the trees as part of a marketing campaign. It’s a marketing expense, meaning that 100% of the costs are deductible.
As a for-profit company, Tree Plan also pays taxes on all revenues. You can find more details about how our company works on our legal page.
