We’re planting a tree for every new user

We’re planting a tree for every user that downloads and funds their tickr account!

As a thank you to our early users and to help start your journey to a better future, we’re planting a tree in Indonesia via our partner One Tree Planted for every user of the tickr app from now until Christmas. You will receive an e-certificate in your name to confirm that by using tickr, you have contributed to reforestation, conservation and protection of rainforests.


Why?


Deforestation is a major issue in the world. According to the World Resources Institute, the loss of forests contributes between 12-17% of annual global greenhouse gas emissions. On the current rate of deforestation, it will take less than 100 years for all of the rainforests on Earth to be completely destroyed.

The project in Indonesia focuses on the Kalimantan region in Borneo, home to the Tanjung Puting National Park. In 2015, rampant fires burnt and destroyed more than 30,000 hectares of forest. This project works to restore these areas affected by the fires, as well as those threatened by the palm oil industry and illegal mining operations.

Together we can play our part to fight against this rate of destruction and help prevent the ongoing effects such as soil erosion, floods, a climate imbalance, wildlife extinction and an increase in global warming.


The mission


Our aim is to get thousands of trees planted for the Indonesia project before Christmas and we can only do that with your help.

By joining and investing through tickr, reforestation is just one of the areas you are having a positive impact on. Within your chosen theme you are investing in hundreds of companies having a positive impact on the world. By directing your money to these companies, you are helping and willing them to do better in future.

We want to make this type of investing the norm and show people you can invest for profit and have a positive impact at the same time.
