Insight Vacations last month broke ground in Jericho, Tasmania, as part of its paperless documentation initiative – having now planted the first 600 trees for guests who have chosen paperless documents.
In celebration of National Tree Day on 28 July, the breaking of the soil signifies the start of a healthy planting season in Tasmania and allows every Australian guest to help make a positive environmental impact in their own country when choosing to receive their Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold travel documents electronically.
Alex O’Connor, Managing Director of Insight Vacations said: “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. 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.”
Since the launch of the partnership with One Tree Planted just one year ago, Insight Vacations guests have assisted in reforesting 20 hectares 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.
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.
*Choosing paper documents or paperless docs is at the discretion of the traveller and Insight Vacations will continue to provide both options.
