“Alexa, grow a tree” – About Amazon


In celebration of Earth Month, Amazon is teaming up with One Tree Planted, an environmental charity that supports reforestation around the world. Customers in the U.S. with an Alexa-enabled device can now say “Alexa, grow a tree” to donate $1 to plant one tree through One Tree Planted.
Trees play a vital role in creating clean air and water, maintaining a healthy climate, and providing habitats for wildlife. That’s why we are making it simple for Alexa customers to help support reforestation efforts by donating a tree just by using their voice. Customers can also keep track and view how many trees they help to plant through their Amazon Pay account.
To further show our commitment to helping preserve the planet, Amazon is also donating $1 million to One Tree Planted. The donation will help the nonprofit plant a total of 1 million trees, starting in April through December 2022, to make a global impact around the world. The initial reforestation projects include:

One Tree Planted has planted over 40 million trees in more than 43 countries since 2014, with 23.5 million planted in 2021 alone. The organization’s vision is to make planting trees available to everyone in an effort to collectively restore forests, foster biodiversity, and make a positive social impact around the world. One Tree Planted is also an AmazonSmile organization, meaning Amazon customers can automatically donate to One Tree Planted while shopping with Amazon through smile.amazon.com, which offers the same products, low prices, and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com.
We believe that every action and donation, big or small, matters when it comes to supporting a more sustainable future. That’s why we are committed to helping customers easily plant trees. It’s also why we have continuously worked to reduce our carbon footprint through The Climate Pledge and encourage recycling efforts through our Trade-In Program.
Consider donating to One Tree Planted through Alexa to make a positive impact. Climate change is an issue that is much bigger than one person, but when we work together, we can make a difference.
