Plant trees with your browser
This extension changes your new tab page into a tree planting dashboard that lets you plant trees while you browse online.
➤ How it works
You help fight global warming with OurForest in two main ways:
Option 1 – Passively plant trees every time you open a new tab page. We'll show advertisements from a curated list, helping you discover sustainable businesses, and use the revenue we make to fund reforestation projects.
Option 2 – Shop at sustainable businesses. If you make a purchase from one of our partnered stores, you’ll be rewarded trees for supporting an eco-friendly company!
➤ Our Impact
The OurForest community has planted thousands of trees in Nepal, Madagascar, South East Asia, and Kenya, as well as many other biodiversity hotspots. We work with Eden Reforestation Projects to employ local communities that plant trees where they're needed most. We protect and nurture our plant sites over time so we can ensure the best chance of survival for our forests. This maximizes the carbon sequestration of our trees, and provides sustainable long-term employment to people in impoverished areas.
It’s no secret that deforestation is devastating our planet…
OurForest is trying to change that.
We partner with brands to make your online browsing eco-positive by planting trees in areas that need it most.
This way, you’ll be making a difference every time you go online. 🌎
Instead of feeling worried about global warming, now you can do something about it.
Here are all the amazing things that reforestation does:
🌱 Restores infertile and destroyed lands through reforestation
👷 Creates jobs to provide income for families in regions with extreme poverty.
🌧 Improves water quality and rain cycles in those regions
🐨 Provides homes and shelter for 1000’s of animal species.
🌏 Increases biodiversity and strengthens ecosystems.
🌲 Removes carbon and other pollutants from our air
Watch your forest grow and thrive:
Plant trees with every purchase to reforest destroyed lands. No monocultures here. Every tree planted supports strong and biodiverse ecosystems.
Reduce your carbon footprint:
From CO2-heavy shipping to plastic packaging and materials, what we buy has an environmental footprint — a single tree absorbs around 1500lbs of CO2 by its 40th birthday and becomes a home to over 25,000 animals over its lifetime.
Make a positive impact where it matters most.
The forests you grow will benefit people, their environment and their local economies — across the world. These areas include Nepal, Madagascar, South East Asia, Honduras and Kenya.

➤ Why should we care about reforestation?
Reforestation and tree planting can transform people's lives and the futures of towns and cities across the world.
Regrowing forests is more than just ‘offsetting carbon’.
By planting trees, you’re making previously devastated land fertile again, so it’s able to support the lives of humans and animals alike.
Working with our partner, Eden Reforestation Projects, we start by hiring local people in villages to plant various native trees, ensuring that a diverse ecosystem is built, and that the trees are protected.
This also ensures that you’ll be creating jobs for the people who need it most.
When forests are damaged or destroyed, the surrounding villages are the first to feel the negative effects, often resulting in extreme poverty, lack of resources, and the environment degrading further.
Our tree-planting partners hire people in these affected areas to plant trees — giving them a consistent income so they can provide for their families while their natural environments recover.
Together, we will create forests worldwide — providing habitats for animals and capturing carbon from the atmosphere. Now, you’ll be contributing to a better future for everyone — and that’s something to feel proud of.

Let’s reforest the earth together!
