Automate tree planting

For guidance in setting up a tree-planting scheme, through our API, Shopify and Zapier integrations

With Ecologi, you’re able to set up automated tree planting by using one of the following three methods:
  • The Ecologi API - With developer knowledge, you’re able to create a custom integration, purchasing trees or carbon offsets directly from your application or service with our JSON impact API.

  • Our Shopify app - This can be used by any e-commerce business operating through the Shopify platform. By installing the app, you can trigger the planting of trees when your customers purchase from you.

  • Our Zapier Integration - With no code required, you can integrate Ecologi with thousands of apps, allowing you to automate the purchase of trees and carbon offsets. Please note that Zapier has its own paid subscription service.

In order to set up these automations, you’ll need to create an Ecologi account. To do this, you have two options:

  • Our Climate Positive Workforce ® subscription - with this you can set up automation alongside offsetting your employee’s carbon footprints.

  • Our Impact only account - this account allows you to set up automation and make additional ad-hoc purchases, without the need for a monthly subscription.

With either of these accounts, you’re able to show off your impact through the marketing materials available in our business toolkit. To find out how to access these materials, please visit this article here.

For guidance with setting up automation, please first refer to the Impact API section within your Ecologi account. To find this, please follow the steps below:

  • Login to your Ecologi profile

  • Go to Account settings then to Impact API

Within this space, you'll also find full information about our third-party integrations, pricing and reporting. For further information, please view our API documents, the Shopify Help center and Zapier’s Help center.
