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.

Transparency -all about tree planting

We partner with the best tree planting programs across the world. We aim to get the best value for money/environmental impact.

Initially we are planting trees with the Eden Reforestation Project

UPDATE: 12th November 2021

We passed 450,000 streams on Spotify. We have donated 4500 trees in total to the Eden Reforestation project via Trillion Tree Campaign

Thanks to all the listeners!

Eden Reforestation Projects (Eden) reduces extreme poverty and restores healthy forests by employing local people to plant millions of trees every year. As of July 2021 they have planted 633,116,258 trees in 8 countries.

They are a tree planting partner of organisations such as Ecosia and Verizon

In 2020 and 2021 they received a Guidestar Platinum Transparency award .

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.
