Doesn’t a card made of wood sort of defeat the point?
We get asked this question a lot.

We know it seems counter intuitive, but it’s actually better for the planet to make our debit cards from organic and recycled materials. Wood is a great material to use if it’s sourced sustainably and the core of the card is made from recycled plastic bottles.

We can produce more than 300,000 cards from a single sustainably sourced cherry tree and some recycled plastic bottles, which means we’ll never need to use more than a couple of trees for our cards.
Where do you plant your trees
Ecosia supports over 20 tree-planting projects in 15 different countries; Peru, Brazil, Madagascar, Nicaragua, Haiti, Colombia, Spain, Morocco, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Ethiopia, Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania and Indonesia. To achieve this, we work with local partners who are able to monitor your trees on the ground.
What tree-planting methods do you use?
When planting trees, we need to make sure the new forest ecosystem can function properly. Ecosia only plants trees in deforested areas where historically there have been trees – often in the shape of a forest, but that could also mean widespread savannah trees.
Step Two

Reforest the planet, one payment at a time.

Whether you’re spending a few dollars on your morning coffee or buying another house plant that you have no idea where to put, every purchase you make will help to plant a tree in an area of the world where it’s needed most.
Why do you plant trees?
Trees are the superheroes of the planet. Apart from being the most effective CO2 absorbers we have, trees help mitigate climate change, restart water cycles, stop deserts from spreading and turn barren grounds back into fertile woods and farmland.
How do you make the money to plant the trees?
Whenever you make a purchase using your Treecard Debit Card, Mastercard collects what’s called an interchange fee from the merchant for processing your payment. A portion of this interchange fee is then paid out to Treecard and we use this revenue to plant trees.

Step Three

See your impact

In the app, you can track how your purchases are powering our tree planting. We work with Ecosia to plant trees wherever they’ll do the most good, from the Amazon rainforest to right here in the United States.

Tree planting helps the planet in so many different ways.

Tree planting helps to sequester carbon from the atmosphere, and therefore reduce the effect of global warming. It’s also crucial for rebuilding habitats for endangered species and providing reliable jobs for communities in areas where the climate crisis hits the worst.

Who is Ecosia?

Ecosia is a search engine that uses the money they generate from ads to plant trees around the world.

Since 2009, they’ve planted over 120 million trees worldwide. They are experts in reforestation, making them the perfect partners to help us achieve our goal of planting 1 billion trees around the world.

How are the trees planted?

We work with Ecosia to plant your trees, and Ecosia has two main approaches to tree planting:
Ecosia plants trees in deforested areas where trees have either been cut down or destroyed by nature. We know these locations offer environments where trees can thrive.

In terms of tree species, Ecosia plants native species to help restore the natural environments that existed before. (If they can help plant non-invasive fruit or nut trees alongside native trees in agroforestry systems to provide income and food for local communities, they’ll do that too.)
