How does BRight work?
- We utilize your device’s unused bandwidth so vetted companies and non-profits can retrieve publicly available web data, analize and perform research.
- In exchange, we’ll plant a tree in your name according to the time you were on the app. You can even plant more trees by taking part in quick surveys!
- But that’s not where your impact ends – when charging your phone you can offer your extra resources for environmental research and more.
A bit more about us and the app
The Bright Initiative is a pro-bono program driving change with public web data. We offer our leading web data platform and expertise to value-driven organizations, universities, and non-profits in the environmental space and more.
Our app, in partnership with dots.eco, empowers individuals to effortlessly reduce their CO2 emissions. Harnessing the power within each of us, we’ve simplified the process of making a tangible impact on the environment.
Help us save the planet!
It’s no secret that our planet is warming up at a faster rate than ever before, and our increased greenhouse gas emissions are destroying our planet. It’s not just about extreme weather conditions – the effects of climate change will change the way we live forever – unless we step up and do something about it.
Planting trees can be a valuable strategy in offsetting carbon emissions. Trees are natural carbon sinks, meaning they absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store it as carbon in their biomass. By planting more trees, you can help remove more carbon dioxide from the air and contribute to mitigating climate change.
The number of trees required to offset your CO2 emissions can vary depending on several factors, including the household’s energy consumption, transportation habits, and lifestyle choices.
However, On average, a single tree can absorb around 48 pounds (22 kilograms) of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year. The average annual CO2 emissions from a household can range from 10 to 20 metric tons, depending on factors such as energy sources, energy efficiency, and transportation.
The more trees you plant with BRight the closer you are to offsetting your carbon footprint! Download Now>>
It’s very simple! Simply download the BRight app, and we’ll plant a tree in your name. While your phone charges, a tiny amount of your unused bandwidth will be used towards critical environmental research as well as for vetted organizations to improve their databases, offer better products, services and pricing. The more you charge your phone and keep the app open – the more trees we’ll plant in your name!
Just imagine you have a magic app that plants trees to help make the air cleaner and reduce the bad stuff called carbon dioxide (CO2). Each tree can absorb 22 kilograms of CO2 every year. Let’s see how this can add up over time!
In the first month, the app plants 3 trees. Each of these trees can take away about 1.833 kilograms of CO2 every month. So, in the first month, these 3 trees together can remove about 5.5 kilograms of CO2 from the air. In the second month, the app plants 3 more trees, making it a total of 6 trees.
Now, these 6 trees can take away about 10 kilograms of CO2 in that month. Every month, the app keeps planting 3 more trees, and the total number of trees keeps growing. As more trees grow, they can take away more and more CO2 from the air.
Over time, there will be around 900 trees that the app has planted. Guess what? These 900 trees can take away all the CO2 that an average household produces in a year! Isn’t that amazing? The trees work hard to make up for the carbon emissions we create.
But remember, it’s important to keep planting more trees and also do other things to protect the environment, like saving energy and using clean sources of power.
Together, we can make the world a greener and healthier place for everyone:
Download the app on more than one phone in your house to plant more trees!
All you need to do is click the download button! It’s that simple. Want to make even more of a contribution? You can download the app to even more devices (your computer etc)…
It really depends on user engagement; the more the app stays in the foreground of your phone the faster you plant a tree! Charging your phone? Make sure to balance the electricity use (footprint) and open the app!
Imagine all the old devices we have lying around that we no longer use. Guess what? You can give them a new purpose and make a positive impact!
Here’s what you can do:
By reusing your old devices and running the app, you’re not only helping the environment but also making a difference in reducing carbon dioxide and making the air cleaner. It’s a small action that can have a big impact. So, let’s give those old devices a purpose and start generating trees for a greener future!
Once you reach a milestone and plant a tree, you’ll receive a certificate under your name (see example) with all the details about where it’s planted. The trees that you plant will participate in reforestation initiatives worldwide, and each tree will contribute to these endeavors.
We have partnered with Dots.eco – they aggregate over 150 impact types from many different environmental organizations.
These organizations connect with local communities, distribute funds, and plant trees during the rainy season to create jobs, improve food security, and promote an Earth-healing economy. All partners are vetted and certified by third parties.
Our algorithm assigns the impact globally and the trees are planted where they’re needed most.
Just download! No signup/account is necessary – it’s as simple as that!
BRight utilizes your choices in different ways.
Your home screen will show how many trees you’ve planted so far, you may click on the icon and review all tree certificates you planted so far.
Our partners, Dots.eco, documents it! Your certificate will alway indicate where your tree has been planted – and Dots.eco know where they are needed most!
A certificate can be sent directly to your email or viewed on your dashboard. Share them on social media and spread the word so more people are made aware of how easy it is to help the planet!
The app has been created by Bright Data, a leading web data platform, through its pro-bono program, The Bright Initiative by Bright Data. We then partnered with Dots.eco to facilitate a circular economy driven by micro-environmental impact incentives – these guys have the technology to actually plant trees in your name so we just had to partner with them!
Dots.eco offers more ways to contribute (like purchasing land for wildlife, saving turtle hatchlings, and cleaning ocean plastic) – we have it on our road map to add more and more ways to make a impact!
Unfortunately no. We aim to keep as little information about our users as possible so the tree certificates are not associated with a user email.
Upon deletion of the app, there is a warning that the record of the trees planted in your name will be deleted.
Physically, we do plant them of course!

Although planting trees alone cannot solve climate change, it is a verified natural climate solution that can aid in sequestering emissions and have a substantial impact on the planet. While addressing climate change necessitates a comprehensive strategy, planting trees is an excellent first step, and everyone can participate in it.
Forests cover 31% of the earth’s land area, but deforestation rates are increasing. Trees are essential for sustaining life, providing habitats for numerous species, and regulating the world’s temperature by absorbing CO2 emissions.
Our partner organizations have a history of success in tree planting and use rigorous monitoring and reporting protocols to ensure the survival and beneficial impact of the trees planted. They plant native tree species that align with the local ecosystem and are monitored by local volunteers or project employees until maturity. As a result of these careful planting methods, our partners’ tree survival rates are over 70%.
