For private persons

Become a responsible world citizen and invest in trees to offset the carbon released through your everyday life.
The global annual average of CO2 emissions per capita is 5 metric tonnes.

Each tree planted by Root to Fruit offsets 200 kg CO2 and the cost is 2 USD. To compensate for the global average you can purchase 25 trees at a cost of 50 USD.

If you want to compensate for your national average, here are some examples

* Source

USA: 16,4 metric tonnes CO2 = 82 trees

Germany: 9,4 metric tonnes CO2 = 47 trees

China: 7,6 metric tonnes CO2 = 38 trees

Sweden: 4,6 metric tonnes CO2 = 23 trees

Malawi: 0,1 metric tonnes CO2 = 0,5 trees
We sell our trees in units of 10, so an American would buy 90 trees, a German 50 trees, a Chinese 40 and a Swede 30. A Malawian buying 10 trees would compensate for 19 additional fellow countrymen!


A global change of lifestyle is needed, but even the most eco-friendly person has a carbon footprint. By compensating for your emissions, you are taking responsibility for your lifestyle and you are giving the world and its inhabitants more time to adapt and improve. Planting trees is the most economical method to offset carbon emissions.


By compensating with Root to Fruit, you are contributing to jobs, environmental education, and improved access to nutrition for the local population in Malawi. You are also contributing to an improved local climate with better soil fertility, increased local rainfall, conservation of groundwater systems and reduced erosion.

Thank you for helping us address climate change in a sustainable and socioeconomic context.
