Advertiser Disclosure Editorial Disclosure

The Aspiration Zero Credit Card is now live to applicants. The card, from fintech Aspiration, offers cardholders the chance to plant trees and reach carbon neutrality, just for using their credit card. Here’s what you need to know about the Aspiration Zero Mastercard, a first-of-its-kind credit card built to help fight climate change.

Aspiration Launches New Zero Mastercard

The Aspiration Zero Credit Card is the latest card offering from Aspiration, a leading platform to help people and businesses put automated sustainable impact into their hands and integrate it into their daily lives. The card, which joins the Aspiration Debit Card, earns up to 1% cash back on all purchases, should the cardholder reach carbon neutrality each month.

Every purchase with Aspiration Zero plants a tree, with the option for the cardholder to plant a tree as well. Each tree planted brings the cardholder closer to carbon neutrality – which Aspiration sets at 30 purchases each month. Reaching carbon-neutral status entitles the cardholder to 1% cash back on all purchases.

“Millions of Americans Joining the Fight Against Climate Change”

“Aspiration Zero is more than a credit card — it is one of the only products of any kind that will offset the average person’s entire carbon footprint just by using it once a day,” said Andrei Cherny, Aspiration’s CEO and co-founder said in a statement accompanying the launch. “Millions of Americans are joining the fight against the climate crisis in their home, in their car, in the grocery store. Now, for the first time ever, they can bring that fight to their wallet.”

To date, more than five million Americans have signed up as Aspiration members, part of the global Conscious Consumers community. Aspiration’s ecosystem includes a variety of financial services that let members stop their deposits from being used to fund oil and gas projects, track the ecological impact of their purchases, and more.
