FAQs

Climate Action Now is an app and a company whose mission is to give anyone with a phone, anywhere in the world, the ability to take meaningful climate action on their phones in seconds, and be rewarded for doing so. We seek to give everyone the means to hasten a just transition to a sustainable future.

To help people take urgently needed climate action by making it easy, fast, and rewarding.

Most actions you take earn points. When you have earned enough points, we’ll plant a tree on your behalf. Keep taking action, and we’ll keep planting trees. There are also social rewards of optionally sharing your actions publicly and having them liked or shared by other members of the community, plus the competitive rewards of winning climate action-related competitions between teams.

It's important to appreciate that this project, funded in part by Climate Action Now, is designed to permanently restore the Kinale forest and ecosystem. The new trees are NOT being planted for future harvesting, as happens with many other reforesting projects. Additionally, Earthlungs is not selling carbon credits.

No. Earthlungs chooses native specifics for their reforestation efforts. We fully support that and trust them to make the right decisions for their situation.

No. All the features of the app are available to all users whether they buy a subscription or not. Of, course, we hope many users will choose to subscribe for the many benefits those subscriptions provide.

No. We want to keep the app a level playing field for all users, regardless of their income. No “pay-to-win.”

No. We decided we could have a bigger impact faster as a “B” Corporation that prioritizes people and the planet along with profits. In general, for profit companies have greater access to capital and fewer restrictions on the kinds of action they can take. 501(c)(3) nonprofits, for example, are restricted in the kind and amount of lobbying they can do. We wanted to be free to do whatever is legally permissible to hasten the transition to an equitable and sustainable future.
