Join the BGPP Mission: A Nature-Based Sustainability Initiative
Why Fund Trees?
Trees are one of the world’s oldest and most proven technologies for healing the planet. They draw down carbon, help moderate temperatures, improve watershed from run off and heavy rain and provide habitat for countless species of plants and animals.
Sadly, with increasing frequency, forest fires and pests like pine beetle are eroding our forests. Planting trees is one of the best ways to restore our damaged forests and draw down carbon from the atmosphere. By planting trees not only are we helping speed up the natural regeneration process, but we are building climate resilient forests that are better protected from these same threats in the future.
The Blue Green Planet Project Mission is a Nature-Based Sustainability Initiative where a community of purpose driven brands take on a tangible and practical way to combat climate change by planting trees in Canadian soil. By sponsoring the planting of trees through the sale of goods and services, our partners are giving their customers sustainable choices that allow Canadians to make climate action a daily habit.
By funding trees through the BGPP, you are joining others who are are helping restore our forests for today and future generations.
A NATURAL SOLUTION
How it Works
Become a Blue Green Planet Partner
The companies that work with us commit to funding the planting of trees and select the projects they support most. For $1.25 per tree, and funded through your selected sponsorship model, we plan and oversee the projects end to end.
Using professional foresters, we ensure that we are planting the right tree, in the right place, for the right reason. After the planting process is completed, our professional foresters and third party auditors confirm that the trees were planted and will survive to grow into strong, healthy forests.
In return for your sponsorship, we provide each of our partners an impact sheet at the end of the year, as well as a graphical receipt that they can display however they choose. This sheet includes the total number and species of trees planted, geo-located maps where the trees were planted, the estimated carbon to be sequestered, and any other co-benefits that arise from the project.
We provide each of our partners with raw images and or footage from the planting sites, so you can see first-hand the impact of your sponsorship. We also proudly display our partners on our website, and our social media, highlighting them as brands taking tangible acts towards sustainable business.
Step 1: Sponsorship Model
Select a sponsorship model to plant your forest
Your business is unique, so your approach to giving back should be too. We help you integrate tree planting into your business model by creating a sponsorship model tailored to your businesses individual characteristics. A few examples of these are:
- One Tree at a time: Plant a single tree for the sale of a specific item.
- Incremental Tree Planting: A percentage of revenue goes towards funding trees
- Planting a Forest: Lump sum purchase of 1000+ trees
- Matching Tree Campaign: Run a campaign with your customers and match their contributions to our forests
- Crowdfund a Forest: Get Creative! Set up a crowdfunding model with your customers and engage in sustainable action together
Set up a call with our team and we can find the best solution for you. Whether is is one the options above, or a new approach tailored specifically to your needs.
Step 2: Select your Project
We are in a constant state of project development. Working with indigenous groups, rural communities, private landowners, professional foresters and all levels of government, we find impactful and meaningful projects that maximize the benefits of each tree we plant.
As we add new projects, we will add them to our Projects Page!
Step 3: We plant the trees, share your stories, and take meaningful steps to a greener future
We plant your trees on the project(s) you have chosen. The trees grow, sequestering carbon, restoring ecosystems, and providing social and economic benefits for the communities we plant with. You share your story with your customers and invite them to join you. We highlight you with our other partners and share your stories with the world.
Set up a chat with our team. Send us an email with your name as well as your organization name, and we will start you on your journey to planting a forest!
