Groupia are proud to announce that we have teamed up with the wonderful folks over at One Tree Planted to do our bit for the planet and help combat climate change.
From now on, for every booking Groupia make, we promise to plant one tree!
We’re taking steps to minimise our carbon footprint and set about redressing the balance.
One Tree Planted are a planet-saving, forest-replenishing, non-profit organisation who are dedicated to improving the environment one tree at a time. Since their inception in 2014, they have gone on to plant nearly 6 million trees, with 4 million being planted in 2019 alone. They work hard to ensure they team up with the best reforestation partners in the business in order to secure an 80-90% tree survival rate.
Often referred to as ‘the lungs of the Earth’ trees breathe in harmful carbon and breathe out lovely, refreshing, life-giving oxygen (you could say they’re ex-tree-mely important... you don’t have to though!). Forests alone absorb roughly 2.6 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide a year and we’ve cracked out the calculators and can confirm that is an awful lot of carbon! So, by planting more, we can help to absorb more!
Not only do they help to control the levels of CO2 being released into our atmosphere, forests also provide a plethora of other brilliant benefits: they help to purify our water, provide a habitat for millions of the Earth’s animals and plants, deliver jobs to over 1.6 billion people around the world, and produce vital ingredients used in 25% of all medicines! Pretty important, ay?!
Since Groupia came into existence, we’ve sent over 500,000 clients off on adventures here, there and everywhere. Whilst we’re keen to keep growing, however, we don’t want our carbon footprint to grow with us. With the world in a climate crisis, we can no longer afford to bury our heads in the sand, which is why we’ve partnered up with this fantastic organisation in an effort to reduce our carbon emissions.
