‘We’ve embedded reforestation into the heart of Get My Slice. Our mission is not only to use data for good – we also want to make an impact by helping the environment. That’s why, with your help, we’re planting 50,000 trees.’
Founder & CEO of Get My Slice
Any new users who sign up using My Green Pod’s unique link will have a tree planted on their behalf, and another planted for every transaction made on My Green Pod.
Get My Slice and My Green Pod will be planting trees through the Eden Project, which aims to reduce extreme poverty and restore healthy forests by employing local people to plant millions of trees every year.
The charity’s mission is to offer the dignity of fair employment to people living in impoverished communities, and empower them to become transformational agents of global forest restoration.
Eden’s global restoration network creates livelihoods for millions of people living in extreme poverty by helping them to create change on a global scale.
By spreading the message, you can plant more trees; early members of Get My Slice get automatic membership to the Founders’ Club, where points can be earned for completing in-app activities and referring friends.
Founders’ Points are related to the future value of Get My Slice, meaning you can be part of the company’s journey to ‘use data for good’. You can alternatively cash the points in to plant trees.
Currently you can get 1,000 points just for joining, 2,000 for completing your first offer and another 1,000 when one of your friends joins – which already adds up to two trees planted. There are lots of opportunities to earn even more.
