Why Inspired Adventures is replanting forests in Western Australia
4 November 2020
As a B Corp company, Inspired Adventures has always been passionate about using the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. This World Tourism Day, we’re more committed than ever to fighting climate change and supporting the health of the planet.
Although COVID-19 has been a challenging time, we have all had an opportunity to reflect during this period on how we travel. For the planet, COVID-19 has offered a chance to rest and recover, and shown us how important it is for tourism to rebuild better and more sustainably. For us, we have been working hard to change the way we operate so that, when we can start travelling again, we are reducing our impact on the planet.
It makes sense that, as a company who delivers inspiring travel adventures supporting charities, we make an effort to support the fight against climate change. We have always taken pride in how we run our trips to ensure that we do the utmost to travel responsibly, however 2020 has really reminded us that we can always do more.
We are committed to fighting climate change and want to preserve a liveable planet for all species. One of our key values is sustainability, and we already partner with several environmental charities in order to offer people adventures that help the environment and fight climate change.
Building on these initiatives, in 2021, we will be partnering with Carbon Neutral to support their Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor Project.
If we are to keep the planet healthy and ensure it is liveable, we need to reduce the amount of carbon emissions in the atmosphere. In order to do this, beginning January 2021, we will be giving $10 from every booking towards Carbon Neutral’s Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor Project.
Over 90% of the northern wheatbelt of Southwest Australia was cleared for agriculture by European settlers, and the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor Project aims to reverse this damage by revegetating key sites over an area of approximately 10,000km. These new trees and shrubs will not only help sequester carbon from the atmosphere, but also provide new habitats for our native species in this area. Our commitment will be to use $10 from each booking to purchase carbon offsets from this project.
