In celebration of National Tree Day, Insight Vacations have planted the first 600 trees for guests who have chosen paperless documents.
The breaking of the soil signifies the start of a healthy planting season in Tasmania and the positive environmental changes that we can all contribute to.
What are Insight Vacations doing and why?
Insight Vacations are allowing every Australian guest to help make a positive impact in their own country when choosing to receive their Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold travel documents electronically.
We all know our Earth is in dire need of some TLC and responsible tourism is the direction many passionate organisations and travellers are now heading in.
As part of TTC family of brands, Insight Cares and Luxury Gold Cares are founding members of the TreadRight Foundation and aligned with TreadRight’s three key pillars as they share a collective desire to conserve and protect the planet, wildlife and people of the local communities visited through their immersive journeys.
Since the launch of Insight Vacations’ partnership with One Tree Planted a year ago, guests have assisted in reforesting 50 acres of trees in devastated land throughout Northern California and Vietnam. From 2019, Australian guests will help make travel matter in reforesting their own backyard in Tasmania.
What’s happening in Tasmania?
Tasmania was once a biodiversity hotspot, however, due to the rapid rate of climate change, the impacts of climate change are most predominant in Tasmania. Australia has seen an increase in tree decline which is largely due to changing rainfall patterns and dry land and through the dying forestation, landscapes and agricultures are currently threatened in the region.
This is why we are all thrilled to hear about the first 600 newly planted trees for guest in Jericho, Tasmania.
“The Earth needs a healthy productive landscape to help our nature’s ecosystem thrive and we’re working with our partners on the ground to help enhance the environment’s biodiversity.”
Alex O’Connor, Managing Director of Insight Vacations
“With over half of our guests choosing paperless documentation we know our travellers share our passion for sustaining the planet, and so we’re very excited to have officially broken ground in Tasmania, planting the first trees for our guests in our own backyard,” O’Connor added.
What can we do to help?
By choosing e-docs, you will be contributing one new tree to the island of Tasmania.
