The Ecosia Tree Store
It's an online store, but all you can buy is a better future.
Here's how it works: first, pick the causes which are closest to your heart. You can choose between trees for wildlife, trees for climate action, trees to empower women, trees for clean water, and trees to save endangered tree species. Or, if you can’t choose, select the impact bundle to contribute to them all.
After completing your purchase, we'll email you a beautiful (and printable) certificate that highlights your cause and your number of trees. Whether you buy trees for yourself, your planet, or a loved one, they'll make a meaningful difference for many years to come.
When and where will my trees be planted?
This depends on the trees you buy.
If you purchase trees for wildlife, they will be planted at one of our projects in Brazil, Uganda, Indonesia, Madagascar or India to restore wildlife habitat.
If you select trees for climate action, they will be planted at one of our projects in Burkina Faso, Madagascar, Brazil or Ethiopia to sequester CO2 and help keep the rise in global temperature below 1.5°C over the preindustrial baseline.
If you choose to plant trees for women empowerment they will be planted in rural areas in Kenya, Brazil and India. Whereas if you purchase trees for clean water they will be planted in Ghana, Mexico and Kenya.
If you buy trees to save endangered (tree) species, they will be planted in India, Cambodia, Brazil and Australia to save rare tree species from extinction.
Because the tree-planting season will vary from project to project, keep an eye on our financial reports to see when trees are planted for the cause you selected.
How does this work as a gift for someone else?
After you’ve completed your purchase, we’ll email you a beautiful (and printable) certificate that highlights your cause and the number of trees you bought. It makes a great gift! Email it to a friend or loved one, print it and stash it in a card, throw a paper airplane at your crush — it’s up to you!
How is the tree price determined?
Every tree-planting project is unique, so the cost to plant a tree varies from project to project. Our price is an average, and covers tree planting, tree monitoring, and the maintenance of our online store.
While our tree price is competitive, we do not plant cheap monocultures, preferring native and biodiverse forests. We check on your trees using satellite technology, geo-tagged photos and field visits, and work with local communities on eye-level to make sure your trees survive.
How can I get a refund?
We have a 30-day refund policy, which means you have 30 days after making your purchase to request a refund.
To be eligible for a refund you’ll need to provide the receipt or proof of purchase.
To begin requesting a refund, you can contact us at email@example.com. If your refund is accepted, we will contact you and you'll be automatically refunded on your original payment method within 3-5 working days. Please remember it can take some time for your bank or credit card company to process the refund.
Can I track my own trees?
The trees that you gift with Ecosia will be part of our reforestation projects around the world, depending on the impact you wanted to make. We are not yet able to track the individual trees you’re contributing to our efforts, but to stay up to date with Ecosia’s reforestation projects, please follow us on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Youtube!
Where does my money go?
Your payment will be added to our tree fund (parked at ethical banks GLS and Triodos) that will be used to plant trees with our thoroughly vetted partner projects.
What payment options do you accept?
The Ecosia Tree Store accepts most major payment methods including Visa, Mastercard, AMEX and Maestro as well as electronic payment methods such as Google and Apple pay.
Please note that payments through Sofort can take a number of working days to process.
Will there be any recurring payments?
Nope! Your gift is a one-time purchase with no additional fees or recurring subscription costs.
How can I plant more trees?
We appreciate your enthusiasm and are grateful for your support. If you’d like to plant additional trees, you are welcome to gift trees for another cause. Remember you can always help plant trees across our projects by searching with Ecosia and buying merchandise from our shop.
