Trees4Travel, Baxter Media Unveil Ground-Breaking Partnership

Trees4Travel has announced that its first North American media partnership will be with Canada’s largest travel industry publisher, Baxter Media.

The ground-breaking partnership will enable Baxter Media to rebalance its carbon footprint by planting trees through Trees4Travel.

Moving forward, Baxter Media will work with Trees4Travel to reduce its carbon footprint at its industry events and for business travel and will encourage others in the industry to find their impact levels in order to make their own positive impact in the fight against climate change.

As well, Trees4Travel and Baxter Media have committed to working together to educate the travel industry on the benefits of sustainable travel through editorial content and webinars, including the Responsible Travel & Tourism virtual forum taking place on April 7, 2022.

That event will bring together several industry experts for a virtual session that will help travel industry members understand how to promote more sustainable travel.

Trees4Travel has committed to planting a tree on behalf of every attendee of the April 7th webinar with an overall goal of 250 trees planted.

Baxter Media’s annual Agent Choice Awards Gala, taking place June 23, 2022 in Toronto, will be sponsored in part by Trees4Travel.
