You’re looking for an internship position, but neither want to make coffee nor copies? You’d rather help save the planet, work location independently on flexible work hours and learn something meaningful for your future life while at it? Are you looking for the world’s most meaningful internship?
How about offering endangered animal species another shot at survival? Or fight climate change? Or increase life quality for communities in need?
Even better: Imagine you could all these things at the same time?
Welcome to B’n’Tree. Welcome to the world’s most meaningful internship.
Who We Are
B’n’Tree is the travel platform that plants trees. For every booking that originates on bedandtree.com, we plant a tree – without any charge to the user. Cooperation partners include the world’s largest booking platforms, such as Booking, Skyscanner, Expedia, TripAdvisor etc.
To date we have planted over 50,000 trees. But that’s just the beginning. Our planet loses 15 billion trees every year. Hence we have a lot of work to do. And that’s why we need you.
Trees fight climate change, create habitat for endangered animal species and jobs for local communities. Three good deeds in one – with one single click of a mouse.
Watch this short, yet super touching video from our tree-planting partner Eden Reforestation Projects on the meaning of planting trees.
You can effectuate all this with your internship. Are you in?

- Hard working Doers with plenty self-discipline. Our world won’t save itself. And we’re too busy for babysitting. We need people full of can-do energy and sufficient self-discipline to turn that energy into results.
