Tree planting and Greenwashing
Tree planting and greenwashing  As tree planting becomes increasingly popular, Treeapp is equally excited and cautious about the changes in tree-planting investments across the globe. Why tree-planting initiatives fail Many socio-political factors can make reforestation projects fail in the long term, as can planting trees without understanding a site’s biome and soil composition. Concrete local monitoring is the only option to ensure that a site’s infrastructure, knowledge, and long-term supervision remains.

How to go Zero waste at home
As an increasing amount of environmental rollbacks are put into place, it is more important than ever that we all do our part to help minimise waste in our own homes. Although sometimes it may be challenging to cut down on single-used products, the zero-waste movement can help households reduce their garbage output. Everyone has to start somewhere - and all the little things can make a huge impact on our world!

Our Year in Review - Planting Activities in 2021
Treeapp around the world Our tree-planting activities in 2021 scaled rapidly. With the support of our users and brand partners, we expanded to new sites in many countries, extending our impact and following our mission to reforest the globe! We did, however, face difficulties during the year as did many. Covid & health regulations as well as prolonged droughts delayed the start of our planting operations. Nevertheless, our dedicated planters managed to plant all the trees in the ground once restrictions were lifted and regular activities resumed.

Five tips to attempt going vegan
Veganism is more appealing than ever before. Once considered a niche diet, it was revealed that a record-breaking 500,000 people had signed up for the Veganuary challenge this year, doubling the number of sign-ups in 2019. Factory farming alone is significantly responsible for deforestation, greenhouse gas emissions, pollution, and water shortages. Hence, the environmental, health and ethical benefits of veganism are beyond doubt. But what if you feel a bit intimidated by the idea?

How to Offset Your Company's Carbon Footprint
Drastically reducing greenhouse gas emissions and shifting to a low-carbon economy is crucial to fight climate change, as time is running out to reach the ambition of a carbon neutral world by 2050. The IPCC report released this summer was a stark reminder of the devastating impacts of global warming. We are now at a point where temperatures will rise above the 1.5C set by the 2015 Paris Agreement unless immediate action is taken.
