We at Origin Travels acknowledge that tourism-related emissions are a real issue. To help reduce the impact of our own carbon footprint, we have partnered with OneTreePlanted to aid global reforestation efforts.
We know that our tree-hugger travellers would want to help out too, so for every retreat you take, 5 trees will be planted in your name.
Our tree planting contribution is going to OneTreePlanted.
According to INPE, more than 1½ soccer fields of Amazon rainforest are being destroyed every minute of every day.
Environmental activists and organizations like the World Wildlife Fund warn that if the Amazon reaches a point of no return, the rainforest could become a dry savannah, no longer habitable for much of its wildlife. If this happens, instead of being a source of oxygen, it could start emitting carbon -- the major driver of climate change. - www.express.co.uk
To date, Origin Travels has planted 50 trees to help with reforestation efforts.
