Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold along with the Travel Corporations’ the TreadRight Foundation have launched a global volunteer day to celebrate Earth Month.

Insight and Luxury Gold regional teams recently participated in a tree-planting day, together with the brands’ existing partner, One Tree Planted, a leading not-for-profit organisation focused on global reforestation.

Fifteen of the Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold team in Australia completed tree planting and bush regeneration in April, working together to plant 330 trees in parkland, while others engaged in Earth Month activities including picking up litter and cleaning up shorelines.

As part of The Travel Corporation’s (TTC) family of brands, Insight Cares and Luxury Gold Cares are founding members of the TreadRight Foundation.

The brands are aligned with TreadRight’s three key pillars of conserving and protecting the planet, the wildlife and the people of the local communities visited through their immersive journeys.

Along with One Tree Planted, Insight and Luxury Gold have committed to planting one tree in Tasmania for every Australian guest who chooses to receive their travel documents electronically (Via e-Documents).

“Prior to our Global Volunteer Day initiative, which marked Insight’s 41st anniversary, more than 40 acres of trees had been planted on behalf of Insight Vacations, Luxury Gold and our valued clients,”

Ulla Hefel Böhler, Global CEO of Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold.

“Thanks to the sustainable choices made by our guests every day and the Global Volunteer Day efforts by our team members worldwide, an additional 10-plus acres of trees will be planted through the first quarter of 2019 alone.”

“The Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold teams have once again shown how we can all work to make travel matter for people, wildlife and the planet,” says Shannon Guihan, Program Director, The TreadRight Foundation.

“Thanks to TTC’s commitment to providing team members two paid volunteer days every year and their partnership with One Tree Planted, we are all able to create positive impacts for our communities. A huge thank you goes out to all the volunteers and our partners at One Tree Planted for their inspiring work.”
