EcoMatcher proudly launches today the next and 5th generation of the EcoMatcher App, integrating new mobile “t(re)e-chnologies” and features that make tree-planting more transparent, engaging, and impactful.
The first addition is the world’s simplest one-page carbon calculator developed in partnership with UK-based environmental consultancy Wanderlands. Answers to five curated questions combined with the average national carbon statistics allow users to quickly and easily calculate their personal annual footprint. The calculator automatically suggests the number of trees required to offset the user’s footprint, making carbon offsetting easier than ever.
The second addition allows users to capture and track their own locally planted trees on the EcoMatcher app, at zero cost. This feature also enables organizations to plant trees in their local cities, while automatically planting trees in developing countries with EcoMatcher’s vetted tree-planting partners. This “one tree here, one tree there” concept helps increase the scale and impact of local tree planting.
“We wanted to include a carbon calculator that is easy and fast to use. Most other calculators are complex and time-consuming. Moreover, we got requests from customers that want to use EcoMatcher’s technology for their own tree planting activities,” says Bas Fransen, CEO of EcoMatcher. “The EcoMatcher team has worked hard over the summer, and we hope that this new version helps many to get a better understanding of their footprint, plant more trees locally and abroad, and to help to address the climate crisis we have on hand.”
The EcoMatcher App comes in 11 languages, including Arabic, Bahasa, French, Hindi, Japanese, Spanish, and Thai, and can be downloaded from Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play Store.
