Green made easy

With bunq Green Card, you:

  • Plant trees as you spend.

  • Make a real difference with zero effort.

Green Card goes metal

With a white, metal surface, the sleek Green Card represents our vision for a cleaner future.

Compared to the standard plastic cards that you find in your wallet, the Green Card is made of 50% stainless steel, which drastically reduces the amount of single-use plastic going into our products.

You may also notice some personalization. The first 1.000 people to get a Green Card will get a unique Founders Number, both displayed on their physical card and digitally in the app.

In true bunq fashion, we never quite miss out on a rainbow! There may just be a surprise waiting for you on the backside of the card. 🌈

Grow your own forest

Making the world a greener place has never been this easy. For every €100 you spend, we plant a tree. Zero effort needed.

Booking train tickets? There’s a tree. Buying groceries? There’s another tree. Going on Holiday? Congratulations, you’ve started a forest!

On top of this, planting a tree is one of the easiest ways to positively impact the environment. A tree produces clean air, reduces carbon and provides a home for wildlife. Through our partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects, we will plant a tree for every €100 you spend. It’s as simple as that. 🌳

By planting only 1 tree you’ll capture 308kg of carbon over its 25-year growth-life. Spend €1,000 a month with your bunq Green Card? In just 5 years, you’ll offset your yearly carbon footprint and be fully carbon neutral! 👣

Not only will you plant a tree in the real world, but you’ll plant one in the bunq app too! You can track your own virtual forest directly in the app to conveniently see how many trees you’ve planted.

What better way to support an even greener world… than by planting double the trees! By getting a Green Card as a Premium, Business or Joint member, for every €100 you spend, we’ll plant two trees instead of one. 🌳🌳
