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

SeaTrees is a program of nonprofit Sustainable Surf that protects and restores blue carbon coastal ecosystems around the world to help reverse climate change. Coastal ecosystems restored include mangrove forests, kelp forests, coral reefs, seagrass meadows, and coastal watersheds. SeaTrees uses a sustainable development approach that creates jobs and livelihoods that will maintain these healthy ecosystems for future generations.

Since being founded in 2018, they’ve planted and protected over 2 million SeaTrees worldwide. This includes approximately:

  • 1.8 million mangroves planted in Indonesia, Mexico, and Kenya
  • 340,000 sq-ft of kelp restored in California
  • 9,000 coral fragments planted in Bali
  • 35,000 sq-ft of watershed restored in Hawaii
  • 64,000 tons of CO2 sequestered in Cambodia, Colombia, and Guinea-Bissau

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.
