About Branch Out

The mission of Branch Out is simple: Fight the climate crisis with truth and trees.

How do we do it? We work with activists, journalists and creators of all types to produce media content highlighting how climate change affects everyone, and how everyone benefits from taking action. As a nonprofit, all our revenue is invested equally in environmental journalism and planting trees that can absorb huge amounts of CO2 and help cool our planet down. Interested in learning more?
