Our mission at MotherTree is to make it effortless for you to choose greener options in life.
We believe that if enough of us do this, we can collectively drive economies of scale, bringing down the costs to make green options the default, and ultimately create a healthier planet for all.
As individuals, we were shocked when we took a close look at how our pension providers and banks were investing our money. Fortunately, we found that switching to align our investments to our personal values was much easier than we thought.
Often, we don't find the time to research the impact of our choices, and that's why we created MotherTree. Our free money carbon calculator makes it quick and easy to become aware of the impact of your savings & investments and switch to greener providers.
What our members say
"The results were surprising & made the process of revealing my finances worthwhile. It is good to see a large bank as an ethical option. It was also encouraging to see how many people have invested with PensionBee!"
"I would never have imagined how much carbon my pension emitted! MotherTree's calculator made it quick and easy to estimate it. Best of all, I loved the recommendations. I've now transferred my money from my old bank to a Clim8 Invest GIA account and am saving a whopping 11.13 tonnes of CO2e per year."
"I had no idea how much impact just switching banks could have. MotherTree was super helpful for figuring that out and then sorting the switch. So little hassle for such a big carbon saving. I've been telling all my friends!"
What's in a name?
Why is MotherTree called MotherTree?
The name is inspired by Scientist Suzanne Simard.
Simard discovered that trees can communicate with each other and even share nutrients. The truly remarkable thing is that these trees didn’t only share with their kin, she found out that oak shares with birch and beech and so on.
Within this network, the mother trees, the oldest and largest trees, share the most nutrients while protecting the smaller trees from storms and disease.
This is MotherTree’s mission.
To share great companies with our members, creating a stronger, greener society. While creating a safe space for members to discover ways to live more sustainably.
