Plant your change is a service of Aspiration, America’s socially-conscious, sustainable financial partner that lets Americans’ automatically plant a tree every time they buy something with the spare change from rounding up their purchase to the nearest dollar.
By signing up at PlantYourChange.com, Americans can safely connect any existing debit or credit card in their wallet and start planting a carbon-soaking tree with every round up they make. Recent studies have indicated that planting trees is one of the best ways to combat human-caused climate change, making every card swipe a proactive step to significantly reducing levels of CO2 – while also helping water quality, improving soil strength, and preserving animal habitats.
For the average American, connecting their spending to Plant Your Change is like erasing the annual climate impact of two cars or one home.

Aspiration works with reputable tree planting partners. We work to secure agreements with reforestation partners to ensure restoration sites are protected in perpetuity wherever possible, and that strategies such as native species use, local seed gathering and the hiring and engagement of the local community are pursued.
