At Maple Overland, we care about our community, and our planet. That’s why we’ve partnered with One Tree Planted. This way, we take our environmental outreach efforts even further and help protect the nature of B.C. In this blog post, we’ll give you a short introduction to One Tree Planted and our partnership, so you can learn how you’re helping us to plant trees when you book your adventure with Maple Overland.
What is ‘One Tree Planted’?
One Tree Planted is a nonprofit organization with a mission to help improve the environment. Founded in 2014 by Matt Hill, One Tree Planted has made a large impact around the world through its reforestation efforts.
One Tree Planted partners with reforestation organizations to plant trees in North America, Latin America, Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Pacific. Each year, One Tree Planted has increased the number of trees they planted. So far, the organization has planted over 11 million trees.
One of their goals is to make it easier for individuals and businesses to help improve the environment. When you or a company donates to One Tree Planted, the money is used to plant trees. You can select the project you want to support, making your donation even more personal.
Maple Overland & One Tree Planted
We know how important it is to take steps now in order to leave a healthier planet for following generations. And we are also aware of the CO2 emissions we cause with our own business. That’s why we decided to partner with One Tree Planted. When you book a trip with Maple Overland, we make a donation to One Tree Planted, so they can plant trees and help us offset our carbon footprints. Specifically that means that for every booking we receive, 10 trees will be planted through One Tree Planted.
Sustainability roadmap of Maple Overland
We created our own sustainability roadmap for our future. In 5 years, we want to have at least 1 electric 4×4 in our fleet to reduce our carbon emissions. By 2030, at least 50% of the fleet will consist of electric vehicles. By 2035, all our 4×4 vehicles will be electric and all our suppliers and partners will be chosen based on their own sustainability program.
