Go Carbon Neutral

Brightest (Climate)

Flexible times and locations

When we started Brightest we made two simple commitments to ourselves and you: anytime someone completed an act of good or volunteer shift through Brightest, we'd plant a tree. Second, we'd operate as a net zero carbon (CO2) service, offsetting all our servers, travel, and anything else we use to run our website and build our community. Thanks to the commitment of our climate community (and people like you), we've already planted over 10,000 new trees, capturing more than a hundred tons of CO2 this year. All thanks to individual acts of good adding up to big change. Now, with your help, we're taking our tree projects and sustainability commitment to the next level with a new service: a Zero Carbon Living tree-planting offset subscription. Using our existing project and partner infrastructure, each month we plant plant trees and invest in carbon-neutralizing clean energy and waste projects on behalf of our members, then verify the work to report back impact, allowing you to go carbon neutral (or gift zero carbon living to a friend) for less than the price of a weekly coffee ☕ While we don't think this alone will solve the climate crisis (one of the many reasons we provide digital infrastructure and tools to groups like Fridays for Future, Extinction Rebellion, and Sunrise Movement), little differences DO add up when we spread the word and work together. To illustrate this, if every Spotify or Netflix customer went carbon-zero, it would carbon offset the environmental footprint of a country the size of Australia or Brazil. If you'd like to help us reach our next planting target of 1 million trees, we'd be extremely grateful, and you can start right here. Your contribution to plant trees and go carbon neutral is tax deductible. Trees planted through Brightest are planted in partnership with The Brightest Foundation Incorporated, a registered US 501(c)(3) public charity, EIN 83-3516335, alongside our local reforestation partner network. Your contribution to plant trees and offset your carbon footprint with us is tax-deductible within the guidelines of U.S law.
