What Is Greenamity
At Greenamity we are driven by the aspiration to make the world a better place and we do so by planting trees and transforming them into digital assets to be gifted to people whose stories are shared online.
We work with NGOs and social cooperatives in places where trees are needed and make a real impact on local communities. Trees are planted by local farmers and made available for adoption on Greenamity's website.
Each tree you plant can be personalized with a message and dedicated to people you care about. With only a few clicks, you can grow a new forest and neutralize your carbon emissions in a most engaging way!
We have the ambition to make you the ultimate verifier of all the work we do; each tree is geolocated and its imagery is published so that you can be sure a new tree is planted thanks to your contribution.
Greenamity was born in 2014 by planting trees in Madagascar and grew in 2015 with a second reforestation project in Bolivia, which counts on independent third-party verification. With your help, we plan to launch 5 new reforestation projects by 2018.
Our international team is composed by young professionals with a unique mix of competencies on environmental sustainability, development cooperation, marketing and communication. We share a deep eco-sensitivity and a strong interest in new technologies.
A team of academics and recognised professionals help us choose the projects that people and businesses will support. Potential projects are assessed on the basis of their environmental and social impact to ensure that viable land is not taken from local communities and that the project brings added value.
