If you’re new here, let us give you some background. Prosper Insurance partners with One Tree Planted and SeaTrees by Sustainable Surf so that we’re able to plant a tree for every policy we write. Pretty cool, huh? What’s even better is we let our clients choose where they want their tree planted; on land or in the ocean. We do this because we believe in not only protecting our clients but also protecting our environment. Mother Earth is our home and we’re dedicated to seeing her thrive. We couldn’t do it without the help of our tree planting partners though. Here’s a little bit about them.
One Tree Planted
One Tree Planted is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization focused on global reforestation. As an environmental charity, they’re dedicated to making it easier for individuals and businesses, like Prosper, to give back to the environment, create a healthier climate, protect biodiversity and help reforestation efforts around the world. All by planting trees!
The organization started in 2014. Since then, they have planted over 15 million trees as of 2020. They work with awesome reforestations partners in North America, South America, Asia, and Africa. Those partners help get trees in the ground in an effort to restore forests after fires and floods, create jobs, build communities, and protect habitats for biodiversity.
SeaTrees by Sustainable Surf
Sustainable Surf is a 501(c)(3) non-profit based in California. They use the power of surfing to inspire actions that protect ocean health and reverse climate change. SeaTrees makes it easy for those who care about the ocean (don’t we all) to directly support communities planting and protecting blue-carbon coastal ecosystems. The most effective way to suck carbon out of the atmosphere – Period.
Since founded in 2018, they’ve planted and protected over 900,000 mangroves in various parts of Indonesia and Kenya. Their mission is to provide financial support to “regenerative” projects that protect and restore critical blue carbon ocean ecosystems, such as:
- Mangrove forests
- Kelp forests
- Coral reefs
- Seagrass meadows
- Ridge to Reef watershed conservation
How We Work Together
For us, it’s more than just selling insurance. At Prosper, we’re always looking for ways we can be more sustainable and make an environmental impact. That’s why we partner with these organizations. We’ve adopted a ‘one for one’ model which means that for every 1 policy sold, 1 tree is planted. Together, we do what we can to make this world a better place. And that’s just another way that you can feel good about your insurance.
