Get My Slice is a free app that helps you monetise your data and make a positive environmental impact.

My Green Pod has partnered with the tech startup to plant 50,000 trees – and we need your help to reach our goal.

The app’s latest offer allows you to offset emissions using your recent transactions; simply link your card, answer a few questions and Get My Slice will plant 10 trees in our forest.

It’s easy and completely free to get involved – and as an added bonus, Get My Slice will instantly pay £1 into your account.

‘Reforestation is embedded into the heart of Get My Slice. Our mission is not only to use data for good – we also want to save the planet. With your help, we’ve already planted 15,000 trees towards our goal of 50,000.’

Founder & CEO of Get My Slice

Fighting poverty with reforestation

Get My Slice and My Green Pod will be planting trees through the Eden Reforestation 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.

Click here to download the free Get My Slice app from the App Store or Google Play and complete the 50,000 tree offer.
