Why does Aspiration plant nine trees?
Planting trees and restoring forests are among the best ways to draw down carbon from the atmosphere, because they can help mitigate the impacts of climate change and contribute to healthy ecosystems that support wildlife and people. Why nine trees? Because that is the estimated amount of trees from Aspiration’s reforestation partners that can sequester an equivalent amount of carbon dioxide over the lifetime of the trees to match the average American’s monthly carbon footprint.

Offer Terms and Conditions
¹ Offer is non-transferable and non-assignable. Customer must set up a new direct deposit to the account from their paycheck, pension or government benefits (such as Social Security) from their employer or the government to be eligible. The first qualifying direct deposit must be deposited into the account on or before December 15, 2023 to be eligible and customer must have at least $500 of cumulative direct deposits from their paycheck, pension or government benefits (such as Social Security) by December 15, 2023 to receive the monthly tree planting contribution (“Monthly Tree Planting Contribution”) for the month of December. Customer must also have at least $500 of cumulative direct deposits from their paycheck, pension or government benefits (such as Social Security) for the consecutive months of January and February of 2024 to be eligible for the monthly tree planting contribution for the months of January and February 2024 and to be eligible for the $25 credit. Allow up to 90 days from the date of your last qualifying direct deposit for the $25 credit to post to your Aspiration account. The average American’s monthly carbon footprint is calculated using CAIT (2019) data on the U.S. average, per-capita footprint of 17,580 kgCO2e/year. Based on Aspiration calculations, a tree’s lifetime sequestration amount after survival/buffer is estimated to be 162.5 kgCO2e/tree. Thus 17,580 kgCO2e divided by 162.5kgCO2e/tree divided by 12 months = 9 trees/month/person, which results in the Monthly Tree Planting Contribution. Funded trees can take up to 18 months to plant, allowing for time to set up nurseries, select/expand planting sites, take advantage of optimal planting seasons and accommodate for local/regional/country social, political and health considerations. Planting trees and restoring forests are among the best ways to draw down carbon from the atmosphere, because they can help mitigate the impacts of climate change and contribute to healthy ecosystems that support wildlife and people. Trees planted by our reforestation partners are not intended to be used as carbon offsets and are not verified as such by a third party. Planted trees are part of a reforestation program where approximately 20-30% more trees are planted to account for natural survival rates and unforeseen circumstances (i.e., wildfires, natural disasters, disease) so enough trees survive to reforest an area. However, there is no guarantee all trees planted will be permanent. Aspiration Account must be open and in good standing, in the sole determination of Aspiration, through the date of the credit. Good standing generally means that the Account is open and not overdrawn and you are in full compliance with the terms of the customer agreement. Promotion is valid from October 28 - December 15, 2023. All applicable account terms, fees, and charges are subject to change. This offer may be modified or withdrawn at any time without notice. Customer is responsible for any federal, state, or local taxes due on the bonus and we will report as income to the tax authorities, if required by applicable law. Customer should consult a tax advisor.
² Aspiration’s early direct deposit of funds service is not guaranteed, is subject to payor’s support and the timing of payor’s payment instruction, and is based on a comparison of our policy of making funds available upon our receipt of payment instruction with the typical banking practice of posting funds at settlement. Aspiration generally makes these funds available on the day the payment file is received, which may be up to 2 days earlier than the scheduled payment date.
