Integrate Climate Action Everywhere
How to integrate climate action everywhere
There are four main ways you can use your Ecologi profile to plant trees through your business. This step-by-step guide shows you how to set up each of our integrations so you can get planting.
Running a store on Shopify? Install our Shopify app to plant trees for each sale, or by sale value.
Our Zapier integration allows you to connect thousands of apps to your Ecologi account – with no programming required.
Integrate with our simple API, to plant trees and fund certified carbon offsets.
Manually purchase climate action
You can add trees and offsets directly to your profile with the ‘Add More Impact’ button – any time you like.
Plant trees with Shopify
Join hundreds of Shopify stores and install our tree planting plugin. Each tree is billed at $0.15 (USD), and costs are added to your monthly Shopify invoice.
Simple to install
The app takes just 2 minutes to install and set up. Simply visit our app page on Shopify, click “Add app” and follow the instructions.
Configure to your needs
You can set parameters based around your business – choosing to plant a tree for each sale, every order, or for a set dollar amount – and even set caps on how many trees you buy.
Watch your forest grow
Trees are paid for through your Shopify invoices and automatically added to your Ecologi forest, meaning your customers can see the impact of their purchases in real-time.
Plant trees with Zapier
Zapier lets you connect Ecologi to 2,000+ other web services. Automated connections (called ‘Zaps’) can be set up in minutes with no coding, to build workflows between apps that otherwise wouldn’t be possible.
Use Zapier to connect to over 2,000 apps including WordPress, WooCommerce & Stripe, and automate your tree planting quickly and easily.
Pick triggers & actions
Pick a trigger that fires your Zap – like receiving a new order, or selling a certain product. Then, set your action, and Zapier will send a request to plant a tree each time your trigger occurs.
Watch your forest grow
Trees are invoiced via your Ecologi profile and are automatically planted in your Ecologi forest, meaning your shoppers can see the impact of their purchases in real-time.
Our tree planting and carbon offsets API
If you have access to development skills, you can use our API to plant trees and buy carbon offsets based on any use case you have
Get started by signing up for an Ecologi marketplace account, or use your existing account, and head to your account settings.
Browse the API pack
Free with your account is our full API pack, including a step-by-step guide on how to set up your custom integration to plant trees or carbon offsets based on triggers from your own application or service.
Start funding solutions
Trees and carbon offsets are invoiced via your Ecologi profile and are automatically planted in your public Ecologi forest, meaning you can see your impact in real-time.
Add trees & offsets manually
For sales that are not online, or if you’d rather not set up an automation, you can hit the ‘Add More Impact’ button on your profile page any time.
Add more impact
At the top of your virtual forest, you’ll find an ‘Add More Impact’ button. From there you can manually plant trees in your forest.
Chose your amount
Increase your impact with a one-time purchase of trees and/or carbon reductions. Pick from our predefined bundles, or create your own.

Can I use these trees to make my business or products carbon neutral?
No! The trees you’re funding right now are years away from doing their thing.
Every Ecologi subscription is used for two purposes: to offset your carbon footprint through verified carbon offsets, and – separately – to plant trees.
The carbon offset projects you fund to offset your footprint rotate each month between top-quality projects that avoid greenhouse gases from entering the atmosphere (such as renewable energy projects which displace existing fossil fuel energy). We only fund offset projects which meet the highest verification standards, such as Gold Standard or Verified Carbon Standard. In addition, we aim to fund offset projects which meet other important sustainability and development standards like CCBS and SDVista.
Until they are several years old, your baby trees are not mature enough to sequester carbon in large quantities – and those verification programmes which do exist often will not verify carbon removal from trees until they are around 10 years old. That’s why we do not count your trees as contributing towards offsetting your footprint – and only offset using verified carbon credits. Of course – your trees are still out there, quietly sucking up carbon all the same! To find out how to make your business or product carbon neutral using carbon offsets, take a look at our carbon neutral guide.
