Being sustainable is increasing in popularity. Except from eating less meat, flying less, recycling, etc. there’s also ways to browse as sustainable as possible. In this article we’re giving 3 Chrome extensions that make living sustainable easier. Some even plant trees for free!
1. TreeClicks – Plant Free Trees While Shopping
TreeClicks is a recently launched Chrome & Firefox extension that plants trees for free while shopping. It works simple.
- You go to TreeClicks.com
- Download the TreeClicks Chrome or Firefox extension
- When you shop at one of their more than 50.000 connected stores, trees are planted from the ad fee they receive. You do have to activate the TreeClicks popup that shows up when you visit one of their connected stores.
When shopping a decent amount, it’s easy to help planting already a couple of trees. Since online shopping is a 500 billion dollar business in the United States, if only a tiny percentage of this fee goes into tree planting, TreeClicks could plant billions of trees. Download now.
