Encouraging Exploration and Conservation.

We are the pioneers of sustainable travel. Through operating global reforestation projects, we are proud to state we aim to offer worlds first 100% Carbon Neutral Travel Platform.

 


What's it all about?

Sustainable Travel.

More than half of worldwide greenhouse gas emissions are related to the travel and accommodation industry. By booking your trip through our trip planner, we offer the unique opportunity to offset all carbon released into the atmosphere as a result of your trip.

The Carbon Calculator.

Working with a dedicated team of environmental scientists, we calculate exactly how much carbon will be released into the atmosphere as a result of your trip. Your trees are then planted during our yearly reforestation project.

Carbon Sequestration.

Trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, used for photosynthesis and stored in the trees trunk, crown and roots. 

The CO2 stored in the tree is called a ‘carbon sink’. This means that CO2 can be stored during the trees life in the form of a tree and afterwards in the form of timber products.

Trees for life and Trees for living.

We plant a variety of different species: Softwoods for Re-Stock and Hardwoods for A-Forestation. 


What kind of land do we work with?

A-Forestation.

This is planting on land which has been untouched. 

Here we are actively enhancing areas of pristine wilderness, creating habitats for animals and improving ecosystems. These trees are for life.

Re-Stock.

This is land which has been subject to deforestation.

Here we are repairing and replacing trees that have been felled as part of the timber industry, creating valuable carbon storage. These trees are for creating new life.
