Planting Trees FAQ
Through our partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects, we plant mangrove trees in Madagascar. The reforestation efforts revive natural habitats, improve coral reef health, support local livelihoods and aid in the fight against climate change by extracting CO2 from the air.
Each tree costs $0.15 , (15 cents per tree)
If you are using our api directly then at the end of the month, we tally up how many trees were requested by you through the api and email an invoice for those trees.
If you are using our shopify app, then you will get billed automatically through the shopify api.
Once your invoice is paid, we send you a certificate guaranteeing the planting of the trees as well as the estimated amount of CO2 that will be sequestered.
For full transparency, we also follow up with certificates from our tree planting partners that show the number of trees planted.
Currently, thegoodapi maintains a 33% margin and distributes 66% of all payments to our tree planting partner Eden Reforestation Projects. The margin allows us to cover our operating fees including maintaining and building the app as well as all marketing and sales efforts. There are no additional charges to our planting partners or businesses that use our apis or shopify app.
e.g. If you plant 100 trees, and pay $15.00
- $10.00 is sent to our tree planting partner
- $5.00 is kept to run thegoodapi business
