When you get a loan, we plant a tree.
It started as a way to celebrate our virtually paperless loan process. It's grown into an eco-friendly movement, as we've planted hundreds of thousands of trees on behalf of LightStream customers. We partner with American Forests, an organization that has been protecting and restoring forests for more than 140 years, one tree at a time, one acre at a time, one forest at a time.
Each tree represents a dream come true.We know it's not about the loan, it's about you having the funds to make a dream come true. And your loan also enables us to do something good for the planet on your behalf.Together, we make a positive impact.Our commitment — besides using way less paper — is to plant a tree with every loan. With your help, we are reforesting wilderness and urban areas across the United States.Less paper, more trees. Our tree-planting partner, American Forests, is the oldest conservation organization in the U.S.
The trees they plant have a positive impact on the sustainability of wildlife, the watershed, and the global climate.
More about our support of American Forests
Trees in the U.S. absorb 17.4 million tons of air pollutants, preventing 670,000 cases of acute respiratory symptoms annually.
Over its lifetime, one tree can capture the equivalent of the carbon emissions from one car driving from Philadelphia to Dallas.
