Company profile


We are Ecologi, an environmental organisation, who run a subscription service to help restore our planet. Our mission is to reduce 50% of global emissions by 2040. How are we going to do this? By protecting nature, supporting the best in carbon offset programmes (like protecting the Amazon Rainforest) and planting trees in the places that need them. 



As a team we’re easy going and we take great pride in our work. From brand and marketing to product development and climate impact, we’re all striving to move the needle on the climate emergency. We celebrate our milestones and we’re looking forward to some big get-togethers once we’re allowed. Our culture is about pulling together, helping one another, about putting forward good ideas and feeling part of something bigger than yourself. 



With our 20,000 strong subscriber base, we’re now funding 1 million trees every fews weeks. Impressive, but we’re only just getting started. Our goal is to fund billions of trees a month.



Are you the right person to help us achieve this?
