For every ten payments you make using bonsai, we plant a tree. Boom. That’s not the sound of a tree being felled somewhere, rather your mind being blown about what we just told you.

When you use bonsai to pay for something, you’re sending a boost of cosmic love to the planet. For every 10 payments, we plant one tree. That means less CO2 and more local employment where we plant the trees. One simple action, and you become a superhero who makes the world a better place. What’s more dope than saving the planet on the fly using an app? Nothing.

What happens when we plant 20 million trees in five years?

Besides the obvious - a whole lotta green and much cleaner air - it also means reducing erosion and improving soil quality; providing shelter, homes and food for wildlife and endangered species; and providing natural humidity control

The trees you plant via bonsai give jobs to the local people.

Not only does your payment make it possible to keep the global ecosystem in good shape, it’s also an act of kindness toward the folks putting the trees in the ground.

Our partner, Eden Reforestation Projects provides local jobs in eight different countries

Nepal, Madagascar, Haiti, Indonesia, Mozambique, Kenya, Honduras, and Nicaragua. These jobs reduce extreme poverty while helping to restore the ecosystem. That’s what we call taking “what’s good for the planet is good for the people” to the next level.

Our goal

20.000.000 trees
planted by 2025

Come
vibe with
our tribe.

You can plant trees along with your transactions, I mean, how cool is that? If you've been thinking about making even the slightest impact, then this app will instantly soothe your conscience. Imagine the amount of trees that would be planted if everyone became a member?

Thanks to the integration of Google Pay, I can now pay everywhere easier and faster than before, and I also contribute to a greener planet at the same time. Win-win for everyone!

Making easy and free use of a credit card while contributing to a better planet is one of the biggest advantages of Bonsai for me. The smooth use of Google Pay makes contactless payment a lot easier!

You betcha
it's safe!

bonsai is a bank-independent payment institution that is fully recognized by the National Bank of Belgium. Our app is fully compliant with current GDPR standards. Your security is our priority. All the time.

No need to “put money” on the bonsai app as we connect directly with your bank account. When you give us formal permission via strong customer authentication, you grant us access to your account information - and you can initiate ecological payments via bonsai.

bonsai has access to the transaction details of your linked bank account. We do this to give you (and the planet) as much benefit as possible. Your linked accounts work like a digital loyalty card. Every time you pay with your bank card, we check whether it matches our active deals. Bonsai therefore gives you cashback purely based on your payments, without having to scan a separate customer card.
