RaaS

(Reforestation as a Service)

A platform which easily integrates with your

products to reforest the planet

Sign In

How it works

We provide simple and easy to use Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to help connect websites and mobile applications to trusted reforestation organizations to have trees planted.

1- Choose a reforestation project

Choose a reforestation project from our list, in various countries.

2- Add code to your website or app

Add a few line of code in your website or mobile app to call the API requesting the planting of a tree.

3- A user makes an action

When your users make the action of your choice (buying an item in a mobile game, subscribing to online billing, buying a specific product on your website, etc.), a request to plant a tree will be made.

4- A tree is planted!

That's it! You will be billed ($1 per tree) by the trusted reforestation organizations of your choice. You will receive a monthly invoice and report indicating how many trees were planted on your behalf.


The solution is completely free of charge.

It is developed and maintained by a group of volunteers who want to make their part to help fight climate change.

The $1 / tree is paid directly to the reforestation organization you choose, without us handling the money. This way, you can be sure that the money will be used to have the trees planted.

Dashboard

The DigitalHumani dashboard is the quickest way to get started planting trees. From the dashboard, you can submit tree planting requests, view stats around your tree planting usage, retrieve info about the API including access info and documentation, and more.

Dashboard Screenshot

Trees fight climate change by absorbing CO2 from the atmosphere.

Each tree can absorb 22kg (50 pounds) of CO2 per year for 30 years.

Furthermore, trees contribute to economic growth, poverty alleviation, food security and biodiversity conservation.

Use cases for your business

Here are some examples of use cases where you might want to have a tree planted:


  • When a user makes an in-app purchase in your mobile game

  • When a user switches to online billing

  • When a user subscribes to a 6 months plan

  • When a user buys a specific product on your website

  • When a user refers a friend

  • etc.


These are only examples, of course. It's up to you to decide when a request for a tree will be made, depending of which action, product or service you want to promote.

Jonathan Villiard Founder / Solutions Architect

Jonathan Villiard is the founder and one of the solutions architects of DigitalHumani. He lives in Montréal, Canada. His inspiration stemmed from the idea that climate change might well be the biggest problem of our time, and planting trees represents one of the most cost-effective climate solutions available. With this in mind, he wanted to put to good use cloud technologies and be part of the climate solution. If he could pick up a new skill in an instant, it would be teleportation (that’s a skill, right? Right?)

Carl Scheller Software Engineer

Carl helps lead DigitalHumani's engineering efforts. Hailing from Florida, Carl is inspired to contribute towards DigitalHumani's goal of making the planet a greener and healthier place 🌲. He's hoping to learn the keyboard soon.

Tim Davenport Solutions Architect

His work with DigitalHumani is mostly in engineering, but he also works on roadmaps and arranges regular team catch ups. His inspiration to join DigitalHumani was the opportunity to put his knowledge and skills to good use in return for the satisfaction of knowing it's making a difference. If Tim could pick up a new skill in an instant, it would be to speak every single language on the planet.

Malia Stauffer Strategic Communications and Marketing

Nik Osvalds Fullstack Developer

Nikolas Osvalds lives in Bristol, U.K. He is passionate about making a difference, especially in the sphere of climate action, and was looking for a way to give back with his newly learned web development skills. He’s found working as a developer with DigitalHumani to be a great way to learn new technologies and skills in a relaxed and fun environment while contributing to reforestation efforts. If Nik could pick up a new skill in an instant, it would be playing the piano and reading music.

Martin Malo Software Engineer / Senior iOS Developer

Martin Malo lives in Joliette, Québec, Canada and is a Software Engineer and Senior iOS Developer. His inspiration to join the DigitalHumani team stemmed from a want for the human race to become aware of the destruction that occurred and that is still occurring because of lifestyle choices. Martin believes that together we can become Earth’s protector and live in a more sustainable way. If Martin could pick up a new skill in an instant, it would be to speak and read all languages.

Xavier Bolduc-Meilleur Developer

Xavier Bolduc-Meilleur is currently based in Québec, Canada. He works as a developer, and joined the DigitalHumani Team as an opportunity to learn new technologies while working on an inspiring project that is focused on helping reforestation instead of making profits. He knew that every person joining the team will be there with a motivation to work for the project's success. If he could pick up a new skill in an instant, it would be team and project management.

Rüdiger Busche Software Engineer

Rüdiger is currently based in Hanover, Germany. He supports DigitalHumani as a backend developer and in DevOps. He joined DigitalHumani to explore ways in which technology can be part of the climate solution and quickly grew addicted to watching increasing numbers of trees being planted. If Rüdiger could pick up a new skill in an instant it would be understanding category theory, even if it was only for drawing profoundly looking diagrams.

Arthur Dano Software Engineer

Arthur wanted to put his expertise as a Software Engineer to work for a cause that he believes in, which is what led him to join the DigitalHumani Team. In his words, what could be better than reforestation for a better future? Currently, Arthur is based in Rennes, France. If he could pick up any skill, it would be the ability to identify all plants and how to use them!

Brett Duboff UX/UI Design and Graphic Design

Brett is a UX/UI and Graphic Designer currently based in Boston. He joined the DigitalHumani team to use his design skills to make an impact in the world. If Brett could pick up a skill in an instant, it would be the ability to hear a song and be able to play it on an instrument right away.

Sylvie Roux Administrator

Sylvie Roux is a teacher based near Montreal. Because of her ecological and pro-environmental side, she felt she had to take advantage of the opportunity to be part of this committed and green team. She joined DigitalHumani as an observer and administrator. If she could pick up a new skill in an instant, it would be raising awareness of the R rule. Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and… Compost.

Villi Ieremia Business Development & Growth

Villi currently resides in Leuven, Belgium. She is a business professional with experience in e-commerce operations and project management. She joined DigitalHumani during her postgraduate studies when she became increasingly aware of the potential of trees to combat climate change and tree planting technologies.
