The rapper ties other stars like Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert Downey Jr., and Orlando Bloom in investing in Aspiration, but Drake’s connection goes more mysterious than economic support: He will practice Aspiration’s individual and enterprise assistance to observe and cut down his duplicate step, the company’s execs say, to make his intimate life carbon neutral.

Aspiration co-founder Joe Sanberg refused to provide specifics on how much Drake spent. But, on the collaboration aspect, Sanberg says his company is running with Drake — whose environmental trail is higher than the ordinary person’s, given the star’s constant touring and Hollywood lifestyle — to cut down his environmental footstep.

Aspiration allows environmentally-focused economic assistance, placing itself as a sustainable option to different banks and fintech organizations because it doesn’t spend on fossil fuel firms or other non-sustainable tries.

It also supplies its shopper’s devices to trace their carbon footprint and fix some of their spending approaching tree planting and generous contributions.

For instance, Aspiration has a credit card with a choice to turn up every buyers’ purchase to the most proximal dollar to go towards planting trees. Aspiration currently has 5 million users and has planted 15 million trees from its users’ business venture, the organization says.

The Drake deal is the most unconventional in a steady stardom investment cycle, buoyed by experts who have used the preceding year watching to other income streams and marketing possibilities while the traveling company shuttered.

In a report, Drake said he is thrilled to associate with a “company that’s discovered an easy way to allow everyone the capacity to decrease their carbon footprint,” and that “Aspiration’s access to climate variation is inspiring and I hope together we can help to motivate and create awareness.”
