Did you know that you can get a metal card with bunq?

Ever since this metal card option was launched, millions of trees have now been planted around the world. Around 8,5 million to be specific! The Easy Green account from bunq has managed to play a major role in offsetting CO2 emissions by planting a tree as you use your card to spend. 

This means that you don’t have to go out of your way to help live a CO2 free life; all you have to do is tap, swipe, and pay for things as you usually do. The simplicity of the Easy Green account makes sustainable banking an effortless reality.

What Is Easy Green?

The Easy Green account from bunq is designed to help you live a sustainable, green life. While we may think that the bank you use does not contribute to living sustainably, bunq changed the game with its Easy Green account. This account comes with a plastic-free, metal card and a dynamic feature that helps you reduce your CO2 emissions by just spending!

While the flagship feature of the Easy Green account is the CO2 offsetting, the account still comes with all the features you love about bunq. This includes a simple and secure mobile app, instant updates, real-time notifications, and impressive budgeting tools to help you manage your money better. What’s more? The Easy Green account even lets you invest directly into sustainable industries to earn eco-friendly interest!

With bunq, you get the freedom of choice when it comes to where and when your money’s invested. This means that you can actually choose the companies to invest in so that the interest you make is 100% sustainable. You don’t have to do any of the heavy lifting as bunq will do the research and present you with a range of investments for you to choose from. 

This is an incredibly important feature as it matters where we invest our money. If we continue to invest in industries that are harming our planet, how will things ever get better? By investing this way, you get to be in control of your money and get to invest it in planet-friendly companies that are working to improve the lives of everyone around the world. 

Reducing Your CO2

The main feature of the Easy Green account is the fact that you can actually offset your CO2 emissions with the card. While you may think this is a complicated rewards system, it’s actually incredibly simple. All you have to do to offset your CO2 emissions is spend with your bunq card. 

Yes, that’s right. You get to reduce your CO2 by just spending your money as you would have done anyways. For every €100 you spend, bunq will then fund a tree to be planted to reforest the world. This means that as you spend money, trees are being planted in your name to help combat climate change!

Ever since the introduction of the plan, bunq has managed to plant over 8,5 million trees around the world. If you want to know how valuable that is in terms of CO2, that’s the equivalent of flying from New York City to Paris more than 2 million times! This showcases the real power of planting trees to help curb our carbon emissions.
