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.
That’s where you come in…
Fight climate change
Your mission, should you choose to accept: Help us plant millions of trees & combat climate change.
How? Simple – just download our tree planting app!
Start making an impact!
How does BRight work?
- We utilize your device’s unused bandwidth so vetted companies and non-profits can retrieve publicly available web data.
- 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, makes it easy for everyone to make a difference. As cliché as it may sound, we all have the power to make a difference – and now we’ve made it easier than ever to do so.
Aim to make the planet a better place
Work towards a more transparent internet
Support value-driven organizations pro bono
It’s very simple! Simply download the B-right 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!
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!
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!
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!
The Bright Initiative is a part of Bright Data, A global pro-bono program providing NGOs, NPOs, academic institutions & public bodies with pro-bono access to leading data technology and expertise to drive positive change.
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!
Note: when you reinstall you will not be qualified to re-take surveys over again in order to gain another instant tree. We keep the right to block a user in case of misuse of the app.

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%.
