Planting trees in the ground and climate action in the hearts
Our trees can be planted in your own garden, on your balcony or together with MYBLUEPLANET in a forest in Switzerland. This tree will grow and bind a little more CO2 every year. In this way, you contribute to spreading climate awareness and are also a role model for your neighbours, friends, children or parents.
Whether Amazon and African rainforests or vast areas of Siberian forests – the Earth’s green lungs are burning! To the devastating forest fires worldwide, add the clearing of rainforests for our consumer products. This equals a terrible development for climate change, as forests play an important role in climate protection: trees constantly absorb and store CO2.

Donate to MyBlueTree
Donate a tree for the climate! Whether for yourself, for friends, for your family or for our future.
For 40 CHF we will take care of a seedling, a suitable location and the planting for you.
Organise a corporate volunteering event with us
Would you like your company to get involved in climate protection? Contact us for an event where you can plant trees yourself. We take care of the organisation, location and cooperation with experts. You can find more information about our corporate volunteering events here:

Foundation of MYBLUEPLANET and planting of the first tree in Winterthur. For every project and programme that has taken root since then, another tree was symbolically planted.
On the occasion of our 10th anniversary, we gave away 1,000 BlueTrees, which have found a place in 1,000 gardens and balconies.
Planting campaign with scouts in which 1,000 trees were planted throughout Switzerland.
Since 2021, we have been planting trees in Switzerland with various timber corporations & forestry companies – to date already almost 3,000.
The tree – a green symbol!
Trees are good for more than just our climate. They are a pleasure to view, a home for birds and insects; a provider of shade on hot summer days; an air filter. A tree is cross-generational, it’s not for nothing that the tree is used as a symbol for family history (family tree). Trees are like little peace-warriors who serve our planet, our children and grandchildren in a quiet and beautiful matter, day by day.
We have not inherited the Earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children (native american proverb).
There is still more we can do…
…by taking care of existing trees and by planting many new ones. Calculations show that 100 trees per inhabitant in Switzerland would have to be planted to offset the country’s CO2 emissions alone. Presently there are only 66 trees per capita in the Swiss forests.
This development potential should be pursued, for every tree planted can help the planet. An ETH Zurich study shows: It takes about a third more trees than there currently are on Earth to absorb two-thirds of our CO2 emissions, and to considerably slow down climate change. However, the study took place prior to the recent massive forest fires, making climate protection more topical than ever.
