Save the Amazon forest - plant a tree

Plant a tree through Good For My Planet​

Good For My Planet supports the Aquaverde Forestry project, a Swiss association, with the replanting of trees in the Amazonian forest of Brazil.
Aquaverde works with local tribes and local associations led by the charismatic leader Almir Naragomoya. The project involves , hundreds of small villages, and provides them with training and tools to diversify their sources of income while they plant and protect their Amazon forest.

Aquaverde Forestery Project

The goal of the Aquaverde Forestry project is to help the Surui people with the reforestation of their lands by planting 1 million trees in the next 5 years.

The Surui people are committed to protecting their natural habitat and culture.  Some 17’000 hectares of their lands have already been destroyed through deforestation.  Since 2005, the Surui people have been fighting back by planting over 250’000 trees, with the support of the Aquaverde Forestry project.

The long-term benefits of the project are:

Support the Surui people economically as they sustainably harvest and extract products from the replanted and preserved trees.

Regenerate species of trees that have been depleted by timber exploitation in order to promote biodiversity and the biological balance of the forest.

Ensure the transmission of traditional knowledge of plants and the importance of maintaining the forest, to the younger generation.

Encourage the Surui community to work together to adhere to its economically viable, environmentally sustainable and culturally acceptable alternative to deforestation and other destructive practices.

Serve as a model for other indigenous peoples in the Amazon and elsewhere.

Raise awareness among neighbouring non-indigenous communities about the need and long-term benefits of regenerating deforested areas.

Corporations and Institutions

You many sponsor a program of reforestation for your company or offer tree certificates as a gift to your clients.
Do not hesitate to reach out and call for more information. We are happy to set up a specific program for your company or organisation.

Each tree you sponsor starts as a seedling, cultivated in a village nursery and then planted and cared for during a period of 3 years by the Surui people.

When you sponsor a tree (or several), you will receive a numbered A4 certificate in the name of the person of your choice, yourself or someone else.  The certificate is available in a PDF file. 

Please pay online, indicating the number of trees you are sponsoring, we will then confirm by email the names that you wish to have put on the certificats.

We Thank you kindly for your support.

The February Forest Challenge

The February Forest Project

Good For My Planet is using the free version of Whereby for all visio calls. Its free, and in February trees are being planted for every 3 meetings held on the platform. So why not try and see! All little actions contribute to the good of the planet.

Whereby has partnered with Brynk to plant the trees on their behalf. Brynk work with the Eden Reforestation Project who’ll coordinate the planting with members of local communities in Boanamary in northwest Madagascar, Kitiligini in Kenya and Mahubo in Mozambique .

Whereby is pledging to plant up to 1,000,000 trees — one for every three meetings that happens on Whereby during February — contributing to essential reforestation efforts in these biodiverse countries.

Whereby is free to use, so even if you usually make video calls with other software, why not try using Whereby for those times when a spontaneous one-to-one or quick catch up session is on the cards? That way, you get to say what needs to be said, and do some good for the planet, too.

Throughout the month, you’ll be able to see how many trees you’re helping to plant through an in-room tracker and you can check in on your overall tree count with the post-meeting screen. Want to see how everyone’s getting on collectively? The total number of trees-to-be-planted will be available on
