Fight poverty and climate change with Trees of Hope.
2,500 farmers in our Trees of Hope program have planted more than 2.6 million trees, sequestering more than 200,000 tons of CO2.
By purchasing carbon offsets, you can provide income to Malawian farmers who grow trees that sequester carbon.
As global citizens of the 21st century, we are all responsible for the sustainability of our world. Yet the way we produce and consume energy can't be sustained. From a combination of transportation and electricity consumption, the average American generates approximately 20 tons of carbon dioxide emissions every year – equivalent to consuming more than 2,000 gallons of gas. And this contributes directly to climate change, which has a devastating impact on ecosystems and communities. View Updates

Updates On Trees of Hope

Although not everyone can choose where they live and how they commute to work everyday, we can still collectively take action to make up for factors out of our control.

In Malawi, farmers affiliated with our Trees of Hope program are growing trees that sequester CO2 emissions – carbon that's then valued and sold to us in the form of carbon credits. When you purchase these carbon credits, you offset your own carbon footprint while at the same time strengthening local economies. Fifty percent of your purchase goes directly to supporting these farmers by providing them with income that they can use to uplift their families and strengthen their communities. The rest goes back into the Trees of Hope Program so that more farmers in more places can benefit.

We are partnering with Carbon Offsets To Alleviate Poverty (COTAP.org) to empower individuals to address both climate change and global poverty by connecting their unavoidable carbon footprints with accredited forestry projects in least developed countries, which create wages for the world’s poorest people.

Since 2007, more than 2,500 farmers have joined the Trees of Hope project in Malawi, and have planted more than 2.6 million trees, sequestering more than 200,000 tons of CO2.
