The Click A Tree project in the Philippines

Planting trees and collecting ocean plastic in the Philippines

Philippinen Baumpflanzung Menschen Mitarbeiter Lead Image

A very special project has been underway in the Philippines since 2019.

Here you can not only plant trees, but also have plastic waste collected from the sea.

This creates jobs, protects biodiversity and preserves the habitat for marine life.

You can really make a difference here – especially if you love the sea.

Get started right away or arrange a non-binding initial consultation with us, to discuss your questions.

What you achieve with tree planting

Eine umkreiste Zahl Eins

Planting trees creates jobs and thus combats poverty and hunger.

Almost all land creatures need trees as a source of food and habitat.

Trees absorb climate-damaging CO2 and produce oxygen - essential for our survival.

About the Philippines

The Philippines is a popular vacation destination in East Asia.

You immediately think of thousands of islands with snow-white beaches and turquoise blue water.

To keep it that way, we protect these islands and the sea through reforestation and plastic collection campaigns.

The Filipinos

About 115.6 million people live in the Philippines.

The country ranks 113th on the UN Human Development Index (Germany: 7th; UN Report 2024).

These people also benefit from our projects through fairly paid full-time jobs. After all, social sustainability is also extremely important to us.

Here, for example, is the success story of Wilson from the Philippines.

The location of the project

You can find our project for planting trees and collecting ocean plastic on Mindanao.

Mindanao is the second largest island in the Philippines.

The exact GPS coordinates are 6°53’17.0″ north and 126°09’52.1″ east.

As not so many tourists come here, the jobs created here are particularly valuable.

The special feature

Each of our projects has a special feature.

In the Philippines, we collect 1 kg of plastic from the sea for every tree planted.

This plastic is then processed further – into chairs for schools. (see picture carousel)

The tree species

Mangrove forests are being reforested in the Philippines.

These mangroves can survive perfectly with both salt and fresh water. Other trees can’t do that.

A total of seven different mangrove species are used, e.g. Pagatpat, Bakauan Lalaki and Bakauan Babae mangroves.

Here are more details on why we plant trees in the Philippines.

Allianz General Agency Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler
What I particularly like about Click A Tree is the uncomplicated handling and processing. The added value of our cooperation is reflected in improved customer loyalty and an enhanced image. We chose Click A Tree because of the transparency and because of the further support and the development of the necessary infrastructure on site. The planting campaigns here are really designed for sustainability and not just short-term actionism.

For us, fun and enjoyment go hand in hand with responsibility. Our aim is to promote awareness among employees and guests through innovative product ideas. This is how the ReCare project was initiated, to which Click A Tree’s vision fits perfectly. With the cocktail created for this, the Green Karma Mojito, a tree can be planted sip by sip and great social measures can be supported locally. Our guests love it and so do we!

Click A Tree supported us wonderfully as a partner and created a great workshop that fitted perfectly into our efforts for more sustainability in the office and at home. Susanne and Chris understood exactly what direction we wanted to take and received very positive feedback from our colleagues. Many thanks for that!
