Better Globe AS is a Norwegian social enterprise that markets and sells green and sustainable products to help reduce poverty and corruption in East Africa. By selling Donation and Sponsor Packages, we effectively help crowdfund Better Globe Forestry Ltd.’s (BGF) activities in Kenya and Uganda.
BGF’s admirable goal is to reduce poverty and corruption through large-scale tree-planting activities in East Africa’s arid and semi-arid areas. BGF is dedicated to fostering employment opportunities in rural communities. They help farmers increase their yield using agroforestry techniques. They provide training, social support, and finances microloan banks, schools, and water-related projects.
The compassionate customers of Better Globe AS, who support the effort by purchasing Donation Packages and Sponsor Packages, have so far been the primary funding source for BGF’s business activities. With support from people like you, we can tackle some of the world’s greatest challenges in a sustainable and economically sound way.
Our products help plant African mahogany trees that remove CO2 from the air, making you “Carbon Neutral” when you purchase our products regularly. Becoming a customer of Better Globe AS is financially sustainable for you as a potential new customer as well. Half of the trees you sponsor through your purchases are administered by the Swedish tree asset management company, Tree Partner Solutions AB (TPS). As a gesture of gratitude for supporting TPS and BGF’s partner farmers, you have the chance to swap the receipts from half of the trees you assist in planting for shares in TPS through yearly share offerings.
