Sustainable return for what we use
We know travel has an impact on the environment.
With every geographic movement we make, we have an impact on our environment.
Besides the often unavoidable air travel, using motorised transport at our destination causes carbon emissions.
And just like in our daily lives at home we also have an impact on forestation, animal produce, agriculture and energy production. We use buildings build of wood, use dairy and meat, eat grains and charge our phone.
Together with Untamed Borders, we acknowledge that if we want to continue living on and using our planet in all these ways, we should also find a way of returning that gift to our planet.
To go about doing that, we created a sustainable solution. For every trip Untamed Borders makes, they contribute to a lasting return to the Earth, by funding tree planting. For every traveller on a trip with Untamed Borders, they invest 2% in trees . Even better, these funds are used to grow and maintain forests by locals in the countries that Untamed Borders travels to; by supporting tree planting in the region of Bamyan, Afghanistan.
How we see the future
We hope other companies will follow this example and are already excited to see that companies, like ecosia.org have really started thinking about how they can contribute to this global problem. And, like Untamed Borders, invest in local communities with their activities.
This contributes to our goal at Eastern Ridge – sustainable development starting from the local community, with Western business input for knowledge and funds.
