Your money. Your choice.

Now the choice is yours. Choosing a greener way to save with MotherTree could be the biggest change you can make to address global inequality and climate change.

How MotherTree works

About us

When I first looked at where my pension was invested, I was shocked – 4% in oil and gas companies, 2% in weapons manufacturing. It was crazy that my provider was investing in these companies. And it was a similar story for my bank. I knew I had to do something about it. And to my great surprise, I found switching was much easier than I thought.

That's why I created MotherTree. To show people the impact of their own money and help them make a positive change.

I'm Dan. Before MotherTree, I helped found Look After My Bills, the Y Combinator-backed startup that got the best ever deal on BBC's Dragons' Den.
