Trafalgar is continuing to spread the word about its passion for the planet by encouraging agents and their clients to do their bit for International Day of Forests on March 21.
The global guided holiday brand is reminding agents the importance of e-Documentation and confirms that for each booking it will plant a tree on behalf of every client, via its partner One Tree Planted, a non-profit organization focused on global reforestation.
Forests cover one third of the earth’s land mass and 1.6 billion people – including more than 2,000 indigenous cultures – depend on forests for their livelihoods, medicines, fuel, food and shelter. Believing in the power of tourism for good, JoinTrafalgar, in partnership with its not-for-profit TreadRight Foundation, is committed to making a difference, with e-Documentation being just one of the measures in place to help travellers on the path to being a better global citizen.
With the aim of reforesting 100 acres of barren and devastated land across Tanzania and Northern California in 2018 alone, the simple initiative shows how every little bit helps when it comes to preserving our precious planet. Destinations were chosen because of Trafalgar’s close connections to California, with the USA team being based in the state that recently endured fierce fires that destroyed over a million acres of forest; plus, Tanzania because of Trafalgar CEO Gavin Tollman’s passion for reforestation in his Africa, his homeland.
