As the name already suggests: Mastodon.green is a green mastodon instance:

- According to our file storage provider, Amazon AWS, our CO2 emissions are 0,0 tonne CO2e
Mastodon.green is a membership based server
This means fair funding for everyone. Membership fees covers the cost of the server and climate action. You get peace of mind and the a good feeling knowing that you’re a club member, not a target for advertising. Our memberships come in three flavours:

- Booster: includes 2 free guest accounts and is available on Patreon and SteadyHQ for 3 € per month
- Supporter: includes 4 free guest accounts and is available on Patreon and SteadyHQ for 5,99 € per month
Prices excluding applicable local VAT or sales tax. Steady is a German membership platform that offers payment with card, PayPal, bank transfer or Apple Pay. No commitments, you can cancel any time.
Mastodon.green is worldwide and regional
The original Mastodon.green server was intended as a European instance. However, with the massive influx of users in November 2022 it became clear that the interest to join our tree planting mission wasn’t limited to Europe – and we’ve opened it up globally. Shortly thereafter we opened up a regional Mastodon server for people in the EU: eu.mastodon.green.
Remember that you can be on any Mastodon.green server and interact with friends on any other Mastodon server, unless it’s listed as a blocked server on our instance’s about page. The benefit of being on a regional server is that the local timeline and trending posts are more likely to reflect what’s happening within that region. It’s basically a smaller community of like-minded people.
