Once your account’s open, we’ll plant a tree through Trillion Trees!
Trillion Trees is a joint venture between BirdLife International, Wildlife Conservation Society and WWF that is focused on protecting and restoring the world’s forests.
Starling Bank will make a donation to WWF-UK, a registered charity with charity registration number 1081247 in England and Wales and SC039593 in Scotland, of £3 for each bank account, which is successfully opened with Starling Bank as a result of a referral under this scheme.
