Earlier this year Tentree pledged to translate likes into planting new trees. At a time when environment protection is at an all-time high, it comes as no surprise to see this post amongst the top five most liked photos.

After receiving five million likes the company pledged to plant 500,000 trees in Indonesia, but the good news doesn’t stop there. With more post likes came more good news, as a result of surpassing 20 million likes the company pledged to plant a further one million trees. The company is hoping to bypass the egg by unlocking a new level of sustainability when it passes 50 million and 100 million likes.
