Everytime you listen to a song on a streaming service it earns a tiny bit of cash for it's creator.

Around ~100 streams makes enough money to plant one tree.

We use all that money for reforestation.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does this work?

When you stream a song the musician gets some money (e.g Drake earned $52.5 million from Spotify last year). We've created a 31 second audio clip where all that money goes to planting trees Around ~100 streams will pay to plant one tree (you have to listen to at least 30 seconds with the sound up (no mute -sorry).

Please don't use bots or try to cheat the streaming services. It won't work and might get us banned So more streams = more trees so don't forget to share and add to playlists.

Their mission ( from CharityNaviagtor):

Founded in 2002, Eden Reforestation Projects aims to provide fair wage employment to impoverished villagers as global forest restoration agents. We hire the poorest of the poor to grow, plant, and guard to maturity native species forest on a massive scale. Our "Employ to Plant" methodology results in a multiplication of positive socio-economic and environment measures. By the year 2025 our objective is to plant a minimum of 500 million trees each year and to offer hope through the employment of tens of thousands of people in countries where extreme poverty is rampant.

Streaming income



According to Distrokid who handle the royalties from the streaming services I won't get any payment for around 3 months. At that time I will spend all the money generated on planting trees. And of course I will show records of this. I state ~100 streams = 1 play because sometimes streaming services don't monetize a stream: e.g the listener had the sound down or didn't listen to more than 30 seconds or they suspect bots are being used.

I hope that if this is successful I will be able to transfer the copyright to a good tree planting program directly so I don't have to deal with transfers etc.
