We want to change our world
and we need superheroes like you.
But who are we? What’s all this about Mirlo? Have a look here.


Transform our daily negative environmental footprint into a forest that will guarantee a sustainable future. To achieve this year’s objective — we want to create a
29 hectare / 71 acre forest in La Orotava— there needs to be lots of us...
In fact we need there to be of us!


You can be a superhero too!
You’re here because someone thinks you’re a hero too, just like Mirlo, and that you’re perfectly capable of undertaking this mission. You can make it happen!

It’s time to plant trees at last!
The results of the 2013 Corona Forestal project that we have just closed are as follows:

70 mirlos
457 trees
122 tons of positive CO₂ footprint

Any purchases you make from now on will be dedicated to the 2014 Corona Forestal project.


Transform your own footprint into a positive one - today!
Visit store.mirlo.co and purchase whichever Positive Nature pack you prefer: you decide how much you want to contribute and the aspect of your daily life that you would like to transform.

Go one step farther and be a genuine superhero.
With great power comes great responsibility! Make a personal commitment and join us in creating a great band of mirlos. Choose three friends and convince them to become mirlos and to take part in the campaign and to become another important link in the chain. Call them on the phone, send them an email, write them a message on WhatsApp, buy them a coffee… Whatever method seems best to you will be just great and to make things easier for you we’ve drawn up a template you can use.
In just one round there’ll be three more Mirlos. By round two, we’ll be 13 more; round three, 40 mirlos; round four, 121...! And when we reach the eighth round there’ll be almost 10,000 of us and we’ll have reached the 345,000 Euros we need to plant
29 hectares / 71 acres this year.

What happens if we don’t achieve our objective?
That won’t stop us, we’re going to be planting right from the very first Euro. The agreement we signed with the Tenerife “Cabildo” for the Corona Forestal project allows us to start re-populating the area with whatever amount we manage to raise and until we achieve the objective.

Hi there!

I really want to leave a positive footprint on the planet and that’s why I’ve decided to become a mirlo. I’m taking part in Mirlo Positive Nature’s Corona Forestal project, we’re going to make a forest grow from lots of small contributions from lots of people. But if we are to achieve the objective we’ve set ourselves for this year then we need more heroes like you! Why not do your bit by taking part in this project – your planet needs you!
It’s really easy, all you have to do is follow three simple steps. All the details are in this website: http://mirlo.co/tenthousand

All the best,


Here’s a longer version, if you’d like to be able to explain a bit more about us.

Hi [Name of your friend]!

I really want to leave a positive footprint on the planet and that’s why I’ve decided to become a mirlo. I’m taking part in Mirlo Positive Nature’s “Wanted! 10,000 Mirlos to Save the World” campaign which is going to make a forest grow from lots of small contributions from lots of people.

The company behind this project is called Mirlo Positive Nature. What they do is they finance environmental projects by selling packs which allow you to turn your everyday impact on the environment into a living and growing forest. For example, by donating 21 Euros you can plant three trees which is enough to eliminate the CO2 emissions of a flight from Europe to the Canary Islands. And you can do the same with the petrol your car consumes, the electricity you use in your house…

By becoming a mirlo you can take part in all of this. Mirlo works through crowdfunding and right now they’re searching for the first 10,000 people so that their first project in Tenerife can become a reality. They intend restoring 29 hectares (which is about 71 acres) of native forest on the slopes of the Teide.

And to do that they want to set up an enormous chain of mirlos. They’re asking everybody who decides to become a mirlo to encourage another three people to sign up as well, that way in just 8 rounds it should be easy enough to find the 10,000 people they need.

This struck me as a really interesting idea and I thought that maybe you’d like to be one of my three friends.

It’s really neat, it looks like a superheroes comic!

All the best,
