Our choice of vehicle and our driving behavior is responsible for about one-fifth of all carbon emissions. When emissions rise, the planet heats up.
Get the free app and tackle your car’s climate impact.
Caremiles app lets you measure and mitigate your climate impact by connecting to your car
The app calculates your vehicle’s impact by using heavily researched and widely used EPA standards, but we don’t want to show off our science skills here. Instead, we show that impact in terms of trees.
See how many trees you saved just by driving your Electric Vehicle around or how many trees you may consider planting to compensate for that awesome gas car.
But there’s more to tree planting than just planting trees.
We work with partners such as Trees.org to plant Garden Forests with farmers.
When you plant trees with farmers you aren’t just helping the planet. You’re immediately impacting lives of families in need.Go to trees.org
Just in case you are wondering, no we don't track your phone or require any additional hardware to be installed in your car.
In fact, for most makes and models the app connects with the vehicle's manufacturer for verified odometer data. The app works with all Electric Vehicles (EV) and ICE (Gas) passenger cars.Read FAQ

The app is free to use. No hidden fees.
In fact, you earn trees when you make eco-friendly choices and engage within the app to drive real change. This is supported by generous donations by our Impact Partners.
The app currently supports passenger cars only; sorry no bikes, buses or commercial trucks yet. To keep things simple, we only consider plug in electric vehicles as electric vehicles or EVs. All other cars are considered Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) or Gas vehicles.
Yes. By simply sharing your views and stories with friends, you can spread the word so they too can start tracking their environmental impact.
By burning gasoline and diesel fuels, a gasoline car releases toxic pollutants. A typical gasoline car that travels about 10,000 miles per year produces so much carbon that we will need about 700 trees to neutralize its impact on the environment.
The caremiles mobile app makes it super easy to check, monitor and track the environmental impact from using your car. See how much gas your car uses and how many trees would it take to offset those emissions.
Switching to an electric car is as good as planting those 700 trees. But it’s a lot more than that. Owning and operating an electric car can turn out to be a lot cheaper than a gasoline powered one. In fact, there are several incentives that you can avail from the government and private sectors if you do so. Owning an electric car is much more within reach than most people realize.
'Car Account' is the log in you have with your car maker. You use it on their app or website. EVs, can not be enrolled on the app without a car account.
Setup your car account on the car makers website or mobile app. You may be asked for VIN and purchase date. Think of a 'Car Account' as registration of your vehicle with it's manufacturer after your purchase.
We recognize this can be tricky at times. Simply tap the (?) icon on the app, get in touch on email, our team is on stand by to assist you.
Working with our partner smartcar; we read your car's data in an anonymous and secure manner. Smartcar is a trusted leader in the connected car space and SOC 2 compliant.
Unbeknownst to most drivers 1 in 3 vehicles on the road relay diagnostic data back to car makers as required by government regulation. This number is improving year on year.
While most EVs support verified diagnostic data. Not all ICE (Gas) cars are capable of transmitting this data. In case your ICE (Gas) car is not compatible or if we have trouble getting your car data. The app will fall back to manual odometer entry.
Further automation is on our roadmap. We truly believe technology should just work.
The app has seperate embedded smartcar screens which handle 'Car Account' sign in and consent process within the app. Our systems rely on smart car to handle 'Car Account' log in. Smartcar is a trusted leader in the connected car space and SOC 2 compliant.
Upon user consent smartcar provides us with verified data points such as VIN, odometer, fuel tank etc so we can calculate your climate impact accurately.
For EVs, additional data points such as as battery level and location are needed to determine kWHs and source of electricity used in charging the car.
You can plant earned trees in the app for free or buy more to offset your climate impact. Each tree costs 50 cents (US $0.50) inclusive of all fees and taxes.
Your contribution holistically supports Trees.org's mission to end hunger, poverty and deforestation. Funds collected are used diligently right to the last cent.
We extensively researched forestation groups before picking our first partner. Trees.org was an easy choice not only because of their track record in planting 200 million trees but also due to their focus on agroforestry and support for farmers.
Trees.org is a top-rated, award-winning organization. They are regularly reviewed and rated by the world’s leading charity watchdog groups.
Trees.org plants trees working with farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa. These trees can efficaciously offset carbon emissions produced in North America.
