Hey everyone 👋
Recently, we launched bunq Easy Green: a membership that allows you to become CO2 free in less than two years! With the Easy Green membership, every €100 you spend with a bunq card results in a tree being planted. Trees convert CO2 into, well, trees and hence by planting enough trees you can become CO2 free.
Curious how the math works? Let us run you through it:
- Average trees planted per person: 24 trees/month (Note: companies plant a lot more trees due to higher spend)
- CO2 removed from the atmosphere per tree: 12.3 kg/year
- Average CO2 footprint of a person in Europe: 7,000 kg/year
Fill in these numbers in a simple math equation, and you get: 24 months × 24 trees = 576 trees
These trees in turn convert 576 × 12.3 kg/year of CO2 = 7084.8 kg/year!
The beauty of it is that as you continue to spend more and more trees will be planted, so you start offsetting other people’s CO2 emissions as well.
Now let’s plant some 🌳🌳🌳
