WANT TO SAVE THE WORLD?
As the world slowly opens up we all begin to wonder how we can help save the world? If the past year or so has taught us anything it’s that our beautiful planet and the adventures it holds is not something to take for granted. So how can we become more eco friendly? How can we reduce our carbon footprint? As a travel company with operations all over the world, it's only right we protect it. But what about individually offsetting our staff and business's carbon footprint. That would be pretty sick right?
We put on our thinking caps, cracked open a beer and did some research... and there we found Ecologi
BOOM MIC DROP
Ecologi is the forefront in climate change meaning you can become climate positive & carbon neutral with just the click of a button. Wild right? The best part, they show you exactly what you’re doing to make the change. Down to the species of tree they’re planting and the exact location in the world they’re planting it, so you can really, tru-ly see the difference YOU are making. We're in. Fast forward a few weeks and here we are.
Our first mini forest of trees have been planted in Madagascar and Mozambique and have contributed to providing clean energy through hydropower in Kangugu in Uganda and preserving the ecosystem off of the Caribbean coast of Guatemala. Ecologi really is the future, a pioneering, innovative company, and we’re hella happy to be joining them in this change. Check out our forest here! You can even make your own contribution and add to our wonderful TruForest here! Let's grow together baby!!
So if you know us by now we don’t do average, mediocre or just ok.. So how can we benefit not just our staff, but our customers too? We’ve decided for every booking we take we will continue to plant between 20-60 trees to ensure we are carbon neutral as a company but also help offset our TruFam's carbon footprint as well. To not only inspire but to deliver on our promise. So just by booking your holiday with us, you’re making the world a better place and that makes you kind of a big deal.
Our customers are the reason we’re here today, our TruFamily. So as we promise to be carbon neutral from 2021 onwards, we also promise to help & inspire you to be as well. To make a worldwide difference, to an ongoing problem.
So for every booking from January 2021 onwards, we will be planting between 20-60 trees on your behalf! We will update you on our progress monthly so you can see exactly what booking your holiday has helped plant.
So let’s talk numbers. Here are some stats
Since our tours re-launched in August 2021 and off-setting our employees' carbon footprint since January 2021, we have planted 9,359 trees and offset over 180 tons of carbon. This is equivalent to 138 long haul flights, 540m2 of sea ice saved. 446,853 miles driven in a car. All that in less than half a year... and WE’RE ONLY JUST STARTING!!!
In the words of our environmental, pioneering friends over at Ecologi:
Now is the time to feel empowered, challenged & inspired.
We’re in, are you?
