How It Works

How It Works

Project Guidelines

  1. Green Our Planet is a funding platform focused on a broad spectrum of "green" projects. The guidelines below articulate our mission and focus. Please note that any project that violates these guidelines will be declined or removed. Please contact us if you have any questions.
  2. Projects. Green Our Planet is for the funding of green projects – conservation, education, technological invention, and others — that have clearly defined goals and offer solutions to our most pressing environmental problems.
  3. Projects must be part of "green" solutions. Green Our Planet can be used to fund green projects from the fields of Conservation, Green Energy, Film & Video, Food, Games, Publishing, and Technology, School & Community Gardens, etc.
  4. Individuals & Charities. We fund for a cause: to help green the planet and make it a more habitable environment for all of the species on it including humans. We realize that this can be accomplished via myriad, creative ways in a variety of fields. We thus fund both individuals and charities around the world.
  5. No "fund my life" projects. Examples include projects to pay tuition or bills, go on vacation, or buy a new camera.
  6. Satisfaction and rewards, not financial incentives. Green Our Planet offers donors the satisfaction of becoming directly involved in helping to find and fund new green solutions from around the world, projects that improve our planet. Project recipients will offer both updates on their projects and also "rewards" – copies of their work, limited editions, interesting experiences, photos, etc. Offering financial incentives, such as ownership, financial returns (for example, a share of profits), or repayment (loans) is prohibited.
