Earthbound Expeditions Celebrates Tenth Anniversary Carbonfree® Partnership with New Carbon Offsets Commitment
Friday, 12 July 2019
Washington State-based Earthbound Expeditions offers customized overseas adventures for individual travelers, universities, museums, garden clubs, and numerous public radio stations. Earthbound Expeditions is committed to supporting environmental education, local small businesses and providing guests with a one-of-a-kind, authentic travel experience.
Through Earthbound Expedition’s proud partnership with the Carbonfund.org, Earthbound Expeditions makes annual donations to help offset each guest’s carbon footprint. Beginning this year, and in honor of its tenth year in partnership with Carbonfund.org, for every guest who signs up on an Earthbound Expedition, $50 will be donated back to the Carbonfund.org. This donation will be used to purchase and retire high-quality third-party validated and verified voluntary carbon offset projects supporting forest preservation and restoration around the globe.
Over the past ten years, Earthbound Expeditions has neutralized almost 4500 metric tonnes (almost 10 million pounds!) of greenhouse gases emissions, achieving the same positive environmental impact as planting approximately 75,000 tree seedlings, then allowing those trees to grow, mature and sequester carbon dioxide through their natural processes.
“The Carbonfund.org motto, ‘Reduce what you can; offset what you can’t™’ fits perfectly with Earthbound Expeditions’ long established philosophy of supporting locally-owned businesses, promoting education and embracing the concept of ‘slow’ travel,” states Matthew Brumley, Co-Founder of Earthbound Expeditions. “Why take a tour, when you can join us on a remarkable culturally rich adventure?”
Whenever possible, Earthbound Expeditions reserves locally-owned hotels, utilizes the talents of local lecturers, and dines in family-owned establishments. Earthbound Expeditions also supports projects like the Children’s Eternal Rain Forest of Monteverde, Costa Rica, the Soweto Youth and Development Project of South Africa, the Mama Rosie Orphanage in Cape Town and is assisting families and projects in Cambodia and the USA.
