Here's to kicking off the best Earth Month EVER 🌎

Everyone has a role to play in helping the planet. Whether you're picking up litter in your community, riding your bike instead of driving, or getting your hands in the dirt by volunteering, we want to see how YOU'RE celebrating nature all month long.

In the spirit of adventuring in the great outdoors, we're giving away a GoPro Hero 7 to one awesome winner, plus we'll share the best entries on social media!

This contest is open to everyone and the goal is to inspire a ripple effect of Earth Month Action to all those around us.

Here are the rules:

1. Make a video that's 1 minute or shorter, showing one action you're taking for the planet this month. Bonus points for creativity, humor, or getting your school, family, or work colleagues in on it!

2. Post it on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter with: 

  • #EarthMonthAction
  • #OneTreePlanted
  • and tag @onetreeplanted 

3. Every entry counts, so post as many videos as you like.

4. Contest duration is April 1st - April 30th.

Public entries are preferred but if you'd rather keep your entry private, you can email a link to your video to stories@onetreeplanted.org with the subject line: Earth Month Video Submission. 

By entering this contest you are giving us permission to share our favorite videos, and we will definitely share the winning video and others we love on our social media for all the world to see and get inspired!

One winner will be selected by our team to win the GoPro Hero 7, but ALL entrants will have a tree planted in your honor, plus some other goodies we'll surprise you with. 

If you're attending any of our Earth Month Events, that would be a great time to get the cameras rolling.

Need a little more inspiration? Here are some sustainability ideas that would make for a great short video!

Show us how you...

  • Compost
  • Use waste-free packaging
  • Recycle
  • Teach your kids to garden
  • Give old things a fresh look
  • Enjoy the great outdoors
  • Use public transportation

The possibilities are endless! We can't wait to see YOUR #EarthMonthAction 🌎🙌🏽

We plant trees on 4 continents around the world. Want to choose where yours are planted?
