To celebrate Earth Day 2020 (22 April), Treedom has released a video that plants trees, with one tree planted for every 1,000 views the video receives.
Every individual tree will be planted by a farmer on the other side of the world, bringing environmental, social and economic benefits to their community.
10k trees to beat
Last year, with a similar campaign to celebrate Earth Day 2019, Treedom planted over 10,000 trees after its ‘video that produces oxygen’ amassed over 10 million views.
Treedom hopes to plant even more trees to mark Earth Day 2020, so it can continue to help the planet in this strange and uncertain time.
‘Earth Day is an opportunity for us to connect with our planet and with each other, an opportunity to commit ourselves to a small gesture, like sharing a video, that can have an enormous impact. Just as a forest is made up of many individual trees, so great change will be made up of many individual actions.’
Founder and CEO of Treedom
Stick it on repeat!
The video can be viewed here, on Treedom’s YouTube channel and on all major social networks, as well as on Treedom’s dedicated landing page.
Viewers can also claim one of the trees that will be planted during this campaign, receiving a photograph, GPS coordinates and updates about their tree and the social project in which it is planted.
1.1m trees planted
Treedom, a My Green Pod Hero, is the only website in the world where you can plant a tree remotely and follow its story online.
Since its foundation in 2010 in Florence, more than 1.1 million trees have been planted across 16 countries.
All trees are planted directly by local farmers and contribute to environmental, social and economic benefits.
Thanks to this business model, Treedom is one of the Certified B Coroporations, a network of companies recognised for their high environmental and social impact.
Each Treedom tree has an online page, is geolocated and photographed and can be gifted virtually to third parties.
