MagicQuote launched on Earth Day Weekend 2018 as America’s first all-mobile apps designed save consumers time and money on car insurance and offset their vehicle’s carbon footprint. At MagicQuote we believe in the Triple Bottom Line, focusing our efforts on people and the planet.
MagicQuote knows how important trees are to our environment. We are determined to not only help people save money and get the right car insurance, but are also committed to helping the planet fight deforestation.
We take a percentage of our profits and use them to support tree planting efforts across America, helping to offset the negative impact of CO2 emissions from passenger vehicles. We help you save money on your car insurance and you help us save the planet!
Trees have a vital role in our ecosystem. Here are a few facts about trees and what they do for us.
- Trees cool the streets and the city: Trees cool the city up to 10°F, by shading our homes and streets, breaking up urban heat islands and releasing water vapor into the air through their leaves.
- Trees conserve energy: just three trees placed strategically around a single-family home can cut summer air conditioning needs by up to 50 percent! By reducing the energy demand for cooling our houses, we reduce carbon dioxide and other pollution emissions from power plants.
- Trees increase property values: the beauty of a well-planted property and its surrounding street a neighborhood can raise property values by as much as 15 percent.
- Trees combat climate change: excess CO2 is building up in our atmosphere, which contributes to climate change. However, trees absorb CO2, removing and storing the carbon while releasing oxygen back into the air.In one year, an acre of mature trees absorbs the same amount of CO2 produced when you drive your car!
We are committed to doing our part to fight climate change. One tree will offset one ton of CO2 over its lifetime. MagicQuote users will save time, save money, and help save the planet.
We were thrilled to plant some of our first trees at Belle Isle in Richmond, VA with the Friends of the James River. Join us in our mission to make saving money on car insurance simple while we help save the planet!
