Tree planting is a tried and true way to make a positive impact on your business, and with the Shopify App Store it has never been easier.
Why plant trees with your store?
Tree planting is not only an impactful way to offset carbon emissions and protect the planet, but it is also an easily digestible way for consumers to see a real impact made by a business.
1 tonne of CO2 is an abstract concept for a lot of people, but saying that is the average amount of CO2 absorbed by a tree over its life is something that a lot of people can understand.
Why use a Tree Planting Shopify App?
One of the most impactful ways to communicate and showcase a tree-planting initiative is to plant a tree (or multiple trees) with every order. While this can be done manually by any store owner, Tree Planting Shopify Apps are great because they take care of the entire process:
Tracking the number of orders (and trees pledged)
Paying the tree planting initiatives
Tracking trees planted to date
Providing widgets and assets to show your customers
Not only that, but with the ease of installing a Shopify app onto your store you can start planting trees in just a few minutes!
