You shop, we plant
Every time you shop online while having the Youtree extension installed, we will plant trees for you.
Our partner websites provide us with a small commission of each purchase at no extra cost to you.
We use these commissions to plant trees and restore healthy forests.
Restore animal habitat
Today only 10% of original forests remain in Madagascar, the rest is lost.
Moreover, about 75% of species on Madagascar are nowhere else found in the world.
That's why it is so important to reforest Madagascar and restore the natural habitat for these beautiful animals.
Help locals out of poverty
Our partner involves local villagers to plant the tree in Madagascar.
This gives them a decent income so they can provide for their families again.
Also, as reforestation continues, negative effects of deforestation on local villagers start to disappear.
Mangrove forests protect land erosion by storm, hurricane winds, waves, and floods
Mangrove forests provide important living areas for fishes, turtles, alligators, and birds to nest and feed
Land & water
Mangrove forests filter pollutants from the water, providing healthy waters to fish in and healthy land to farm on
Each mangrove tree captures and stores an average of 308kg of CO2 from the air. That's more than a flight from Amsterdam to Barcelona!
