For every £5 subscription we purchase the planting of 13 trees in Madagascar through Eden Reforestation, pay ‘Stripe’ for the online payment process , cover bank fees with ‘Starling’, pay for how we got to the point of sale i.e. admin, website and marketing, and finally pass 50p (10%) to the nominated good cause. We publish all purchase receipts as we aim to be one of the most open businesses ever!
For every 50p purchase on forest gardens, we cover all the same costs as a subscription but this time it is 1 tree and 5p (10%) to your chosen good cause.
If you research the market most tree planting businesses will do 1 tree for £1 (or 1 Euro) and not pass on 10% to a good cause, quite simply their profit margins are much bigger. Our numbers still stack up to ensure the business will be a success however our goal is do more good in this world.
It will make you feel better!

Yes. £5 will will make you climate positive however if you are a heavy traveller then you may require a higher subscription.
£5 per month, plants 13 trees per month which more than offset the average carbon footprint for a person living in the UK and therefore you can classify yourself as being climate positive.
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) represents 80% of all greenhouse gas emissions which are the cause of global warming and climate change.
One tree absorbs on average 77.07KG of CO2 per year and therefore tree planting can be used to offset any carbon footprint left by a person, business, event or product.
Carbon footprints are the total greenhouse gas emissions caused by their activity.
77.07kg x 13 trees x 12 months = 12,023kg of CO2 absorbed per annum which more than offsets the average carbon footprint of a person which vary country to country. In the UK it is 10,000KG or 10 Tonnes.
We need to achieve Net Zero as a planet by 2050, we realise offsetting alone is not the answer and we also remain committed to lowering carbon footprints.
Play It Green aim to plant 50,000,000 trees within 5 years of launch.
No but it will help. Just planting trees WILL NO LONGER BE ENOUGH to stop climate change. By planting trees, we are lengthening the time we have left before the damage from climate change is irreversible.
Stopping climate change is a complex jigsaw that involves solutions from governments, industry, businesses and individuals. Play it Green represents a few pieces on this jigsaw as we aim to offset and lower carbon footprints through tree planting, creating behaviour change and creating a more sustainable society.
Play It Green have teamed up with sustainability experts to provide products, brands and services to educate and empower you to reduce your carbon footprint.
Not only that but we will use the profit we generate to invest in sustainable innovation to find new solutions to make our future certain.
We can’t do it alone, but together as one global community, we can stop climate change!

Our tree planting partner ‘Eden Reforestation Project’ is the world’s biggest and most trusted tree planting and biodiversity restoration organisation.
The Eden Project are synonymous with secure and accurate planting reports and are trusted by many global brands.
They have already planted over 400 million trees across 8 countries and work directly with local aid reliant communities paying them to grow, plant and protect your trees.
We publish all purchase receipts with the Eden Project to show we are delivering upon our promise and will provide regular updates on the tree planting sites to ensure you know how much of a difference you are making.
We want you to be secure in the knowledge your trees are being planted and you and the trees are making a difference.
In short, we are neither as the management team decided these models didn’t fit our vision for the business.
Play It Green puts purpose before profit, but profit is necessary to gain investment to help us to scale and make our impact global. In order to acquire this investment and do more good, Play It Green was set up as a UK limited company.
Regardless of the type of business we are, we will operate to our vision and values. We will publish all purchase receipts, minutes of management team meetings and comprehensive annual reports on finances and impact. We will be customer led and totally open in what we do as trust is paramount!
A percentage of annual profits will also be invested into sustainable research and tech solutions.
A forest garden is the term given to the bespoke webpage everybody receives after signing up. This is your very own page which you can personalise, upload photos to and share with others.
Every Forest Garden shows the number of trees you have planted and resulting CO2 impact. It has tools to share, campaign and download to help you plant more trees, do good and make a bigger difference.
Forest Gardens allow you to start a campaign e.g. for your birthday, or in memory of a loved one or simply to reach a tree planting target, and this gives you an excuse to share your garden with others and get people to buy a tree (1 tree for 50p) to support your campaign. Every campaign also has a cool leader-board feature which highlights who has supported your campaign the most.
Forest Gardens help towards your enjoyment by giving you the ability to showcase your impact and engage others. By doing so you make a bigger impact!
We also wish to make it as easy as possible Forest Gardens allow you to download support packs for Business, sports and schools, plus lots of social media features.
We will continually look to evolve the Forest Garden experience by listening to your needs and having regular feature updates.
No, you don’t have to subscribe.
Anyone can sign up for free and receive their own forest garden. Simply hit the sign up button and it will give you the option not to subscribe.
We envisage schools and sports clubs will sign up for free and use our service and support packs to help fundraise and take action against climate change.
We say 10% of all revenues raised go towards a “good cause” rather than “charity” because for schools and sports clubs the 10% could be them i.e. used for new books and equipment etc. So sports clubs and schools may sign up to use this as fundraising initiative as well as environmental reasons.
We publish all our purchase orders and receipts for trees planted with our planting partner and they undergo regular audits which we publish links to as they become available.
The fact that our tree planting partner is trusted by global brands and like us is a member of the United Nations Trillion Tree Campaign, speaks for itself.
The trees are also planted with Gold Standard Accreditation meaning they are monitored and protected in perpituity.
