Insight Vacations isn’t just saving the trees in Australia; it’s planting them every time a client chooses e-documents over printed documents.

The tour operator confirmed today that it’s pulling up its sleeves and getting its hands dirty to re-fertilise the world with more greenery whenever a client goes digital.

Although Insight Vacations has run the tree-planting initiative throughout 2018 by planting trees on behalf of guests in Northern California and Vietnam, the group’s Managing Director, Lorraine Sharp, confirmed that from now and throughout 2019 the trees would be planted locally in Australia.

Speaking at a special tree-planting event in Sydney, Lorraine said Insight Vacations would work along non-profit organisation, One Tree Planted, to plant over 20 tree species in Tasmania, including Eucalyptus ovata, Eucalyptus rodwayii, Eucalyptus pauciflora, Lepto lanigerum, Acacia dealbata and Acacia verticilata.

These trees have been selected as they’re ones that help feed some of Australia’s most endangered animals such as the Tasmanian Devil, Eastern Bettong, Eastern Quoll and Eastern Barred Bandicoot.

“We look forward to our Travel Agents sharing this news with their clients, as I’m sure they’ll love having a tree planted in their name, in their own backyard.”

One Tree Planted’s Chief Environmental Evangelist, Matt Hill, added that the pair have a joint goal to resort 10 hectares of threatened species habitat in Tasmania throughout 2019 and “ensure the future sustainability of some of Australia’s most unique mammals and birds”.
