Better Globe is one of the sources that I get passive income from and it’s definitely the one that I am the most proud of. This is about Impact investing – doing good while making money.
This project is something that you should look closer into if you like to help people living in extreme poverty, to get out of poverty. Save the environment, become CO2 neutral and are looking for a great way to grow your money over the long term.
Their system has a proven track record and it works, last year 2016 well over 10000 people got their 15% annual returns, I was one of them. So far, during the first 12 years, Better Globe has made good on all their promises and I feel very confident that they will continue to do so in the future. Some of the smartest investors and entrepreneurs that I know are investing heavily in Better Globe and has done for many years now.
Better Globe has also been endorsed by motivational speaker and Co-author of the book “Chicken soup for the soul” Jack Canfield
We need to plant more trees
According to the WWF over 50% of the worlds forests are lost already and at the moment about 48 football fields of forest is cut down, not every day, not every hour but every single minute!
No wonder the price of tropical wood is going through the roof!
Extreme rising demand and a shrinking stock makes tropical forestry investments low risk with high returns.
Just to be clear now, all the numbers are in Euros (€) because that’s the currency that Better Globe is using. Through Better Globes website it’s possible to invest in trees from anywhere in the world no matter what currency you have in your bank account or credit card. Better Globe has customers in over 80 countries across the world. One Euro (1€) equals about 1.1 US Dollar (US$1.1). The percentage of the returns are the same in all currencies across the world.
Take a look at this 4 minute video to understand the process:
The cool thing is that Better Globe arrange the plantations on useless land, in the semi-desert. This has many benefits:
- It prevents the desert from spreading and taking more fertile land
- It takes away erosion in the ground and makes it fertile again
- It gives people in areas with no jobs, no infrastructure and no water the possibility for all that
- It’s also cheap to lease, since it’s considered useless, and there is a lot of it!
The Better Globe donation package
This package costs 53€ and is designed to fight poverty with full power.
The donation package contains
- 2 trees that will be planted in your name and will bring you passive income
- 2 trees that are given to poor communities in the semi desert areas of Africa which they get fruits and income from
- 500 liters of water or equivalent are given to local communities
- 1,5€ to repair and build new schools
- 1,5€ for micro financing so that poor farmers can take themselves out of poverty by growing their business or investing in the family farm
Here is how it works:
One donation package today cost 53€ but the returns you will get from your trees is over 400€ over the coming 20 year period, so you make money by doing good.
The donation package is designed with all the right ingredients to fight poverty and corruption
The trees are planted on the plantations, which creates jobs, in areas with very few jobs.
With water collecting systems in the poor communities surrounding the plantations the locals don’t have to walk for hours every day just to get water.
Education is very important to eradicate poverty, no country has ever taken its people out of poverty without educating them first. So of course the donation package includes building and renovating schools.
The last ingredient is micro financing, the concept that Muhammad Yunus received the Nobel prize for in 2007. Micro financing gives poor farmers the possibility of taking a loan to invest in the family farm or open up a business. Those loans help the poor to increase their income and get out of poverty. Later on those farmers and businesses need workers, creating more jobs, taking even more people out of poverty.
Not only that but the trees absorb carbon dioxide and if you buy one donation package per month for a full year, you have made you and your family CO2 neutral that year. It is estimated that the emissions of an average family in the west are 22-24 tons of CO2 per year. 12 donation packages will contribute to 48 trees being planted and 48 trees will in a lifetime absorb about 24 tons of CO2.
You will also get a beautiful certificate like showing that you are CO2 neutral 🙂
On top of that you will make money! If you buy just one donation package per month for a year (12 DP) the returns will be just under 5000€ in total.
Here is what the investment process for a tree looks like:
As you can see in the info graphic here above, when you buy a tree, they plant a seedling. That seedling then grows into a tree in four years and in the fifth year we as investors start to get returns from the sold fruits, rubber and nuts.
One part of the trees that are planted is a kind of Mahogany tree called Mukau. Those are the trees that are cut down in the 20th year to make furniture, boat interior, parquet floors etc.
I have made calculations on how sustainable the returns are, it looks really good and I have full trust in Better Globes calculations Learn more here
How does the returns from Better Globe trees look over time?
As mentioned before the returns from the harvest of fruits/rubber etc. every year from year 5 until year 19 is 15% and at the 20th year Better Globe buys back the tree from us for 10 times the initial price.
If you buy one donation package you get 2 trees in your name, and if you buy it every month that will equal 24 trees in a year.
Better Globe have created a “tree calculator”, where you can put in the amount of trees you want to buy every year (or just one single year) and see how the returns will look over time.
Here is a screen dump of the calculator set at buying 120 trees per year (10 trees per month). If you click it you will come to the page with the calculator so that you can put in your own numbers:
How much should I invest in Better Globe?
That is very hard for me to answer because it depends on you portfolio, goals and for what reasons you want to invest. But of course you should not invest all you money in Better Globe, the same goes for every other investment out there.
With that said i think that everyone in the western world could at least buy a monthly donation package to help the underprivileged and our environment. The donation package is designed to eradicate poverty with proven techniques and also gives the donor a return, like an investment.
Up until now my own personal investments and donations in this project reach over 25.000€ and its growing every month. Better globe has done payouts every year on schedule since 2010 and has proven that what they are doing is working.

So now let me ask you, what’s your backup plan?
If you look back at your life, how fast did the past 5 years go? or the past 10 years?
What I’m saying is that time goes really quick and I know that you like everyone else wants to make quick money, I want that too. Unfortunately that doesn’t always happen, so it’s good to have a back up plan.
Owning some trees makes me and tens of thousands of other people sleep good at night because we know that no matter what happens with all the other projects and investments, our trees are still growing and producing income for us.
I Invest about 10% of my income in trees plus I buy donation packages for my “Doing good” money. That way I know that in 20 years when the trees are bought back by Better Globe for 10 times the initial price I will get the same amount of money every year as my income is today. PLUS, I’m making a 15% return every year after 4 years.
I believe in full transparency. I have like many thousands of other people started to get the 15% annual returns. I have been investing and donating through Better Globe since 2012 and since I love the idea of making money while doing good. I decided to become an affiliate for them. If you buy your trees through my link I will get a small commission, that will help to cover the cost of running this blog.
