Be part of a sustainable forest with green energy points


You only need to start with one tree to create a forest. If every Filipino contributes to the betterment of the natural environment we live in, the impact is huge. But how do we start? 

GCash, the leading mobile wallet is not just all about payments and cash transactions. While it mainly offers the convenience of transacting online, GCash now allows you to be part of an advocacy in creating a greener earth.

The Philippines is losing 52,000 trees every day. At this very alarming rate, more people will suffer from flooding and landslides because of soil erosion. Even the animals will lose their habitat.

Through its pioneering feature GCash Forest, app users could help increase the country’s forest cover, with “green energy” points equivalent to a tree to be planted at the Ipo watershed in Norzagaray, Bulacan. More app transactions, more green points, more trees to the user’s name. 

Being a part of an advocacy gives us a sense of fulfillment. The green energy points you earn allows you to give back to nature and the act of helping is very rewarding. 

Science has proven that giving is a reward in itself. Chicago’s Rush University, a prestigious medical learning institution, says the gesture of helping improves quality of life. It contributes to better physical and mental health, aiding longevity. It decreases stress, lowers the risk of depression, and raises self-esteem.

There is even a term for it: the “helper’s high.” Giving releases feel-good chemicals in the brain, contributing to greater happiness, according to the Cleveland Clinic.
