Plant Trees with Internet Bandwidth

With a 1000 participants we can buy between 20.000 and 500.000 trees per year!

Examples of Raspberry Pi’s

By connecting one of our Raspberry Pi’s to your modem you can share bandwidth that you don’t normally use anyway. Foresteer is able to exchange this unused bandwidth for funds to buy trees.

First Target: 100 participants

How does a Raspberry Pi help to Green the World?

By placing only 100 Pi’s in different households, we can buy an estimate of 5.000 trees in the first year and 13.00 in the second year! Now you might be wondering how. It works like this: by sharing your unused bandwidth through a Raspberry Pi, Foresteer is able to exchange this for funds to buy new trees. We exchange the bandwidth at the following providers. If you’d like more information, please visit their websites.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Raspberry Pi

The little box we connect to your modem is a “Raspberry Pi”, a mini computer. With this computer we use a tiny bit of your bandwidth.

With a Raspberry Pi a secure VPN connection is made with one of our highly secured servers in our data center in Eden. This way you can share your bandwidth.

A Raspberry Pi is an incredibly small computer
(approx. 2.5 x 7 x 9.5 cm)

Connecting the Raspberry Pi to your modem and its subsequent use does not cost money. You do share a little bit of bandwidth and power (around 2.5 watts). You won’t notice anything about this.

We invest and pay for the Raspberry Pi. We hope that participants help to buy  and donatie a Pi for this activity. So we can have more funds available for buying trees.

The power consumption is very low. A USB power adapter of no more than 5 watts is used. The average 2.5 watts.


No nothing at all. We do not make any adjustments to your home network.

Yes, our Raspberry Pi’s are secure. A secure VPN connection is made to a server in our high-quality data center in Eden. Users of this do not have access to your local network.

No, we only have access to bandwidth. Our clients cannot access your network or devices. This is blocked both in our data center and on the Pi.

Yes, we install the Pi only for bandwidth sharing only. We do not have access to your personal information.

Yes, you can stop at any time. 

You can turn off the Raspberry Pi at any time by simply unplugging the electrical power. There is no on/off switch.

Please send the Raspberry Pi back to us so we can re-use it to buy & plant trees.
