Pornhub environmentally friendly campaign promises to plant new trees, porn site pledges to plant a tree for every 100 video views, tree planting initiative from one of the internet's biggest porn sites, Pornhub wants to give America wood with its tree planting campaign, Pornhub celebrates Arbor Day with a tree planting donation

In celebration of Arbor Day, Pornhub has launched a campaign called “Give American Wood” that will plant a tree for every 100 video watched in their “Big Dick” category. So far, the site has racked up more than 1.4 millions views, which equates to more than 14,000 trees. Today is the last day of the campaign, and even though the site hasn’t found an environmental partner yet, a spokesman says they already have three specific organizations in mind.

Whether the campaign is a serious environmental effort on the part of Pornhub, or just a clever way to ease the guilt of its viewers (if they even have any), is still unclear. The SFW campaign page quips that “While you’re watching some nice pieces of ash, you’ll also be helping to spruce America up!” While some nonprofits might be wary of associating with the site, it’s hard to deny that 14,000 trees make a significant reforestation contribution.

As pointed out by HuffPost, Pornhub has already revealed its charitable side in the past, like when it tried to donate one cent for every 30 views in its “Big Tits” and “Small Tits” categories in support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Their chosen organization, the Susan G. Komen Foundation, wanted nothing to do with the donation, even though they were having a particularly rough time that year.

While this might not be the kind of initiative you can get involved with while you’re at work, the “Give America Wood” campaign is still a great example of unconventional ways to support the environment. It’s unlikely Pornhub has a new permanent green side, but if there were ever to be a long-term partnership between conservation and porn, it would make for some… unique ideas.
