Jackson Hole Eco Tour Adventures Reaches Tenth Anniversary as Carbonfree® Partner
Thursday, 15 June 2017
This year, Jackson Hole Eco Tour Adventures celebrates a milestone – a decade as a Carbonfree® Business Partner. In those ten years, Jackson Hole Eco Tour Adventures has neutralized the impact of over one million pounds of greenhouse gases through its donations to Carbonfund.org. Jackson Hole Eco Tour Adventures follows well-established guidelines for environmentally responsible tourism and maintains carbon neutral operations for the transportation and energy consumption they cannot eliminate by supporting Carbonfund.org’s clean air and carbon reduction projects around the world.
“It’s so important to do what we can to leave the smallest impact possible here on planet earth. This is why we partner with the Carbonfund.org,” states Taylor Phillips, Owner and Lead Guide for Jackson Hole Eco Tour Adventures.
Jackson Hole Eco Tour Adventures Commitment to Conservation is centered around support for the conservation organizations which help protect Wyoming’s wild places. The tour company has donated over $50,000 to local organizations such as the Teton Raptor Center, Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation, Northern Rockies Conservation Cooperative, and Jackson Hole Conservation Alliances, contributing 2.5% of its profits annually, and engaging its tour guides and employees in active volunteer opportunities with these organizations as well.
Jackson Hole Eco Tour Adventures was created with the idea of helping people connect with and gain a deeper appreciation for the natural world through wildlife observation and natural history interpretation. Their premise is that their tour guests develop a stronger bond with the natural world and will make more environmentally sound choices in their daily lives. TripAdvisor recently named Jackson Hole Eco Tour Adventures as one of ten great wildlife tours. Carbonfund.org is proud to partner with Eco Tour Adventures in their carbon emissions mitigation efforts, helping their organization serve as a positive role model for its tour guests and for other eco-tourism businesses.
