and feeling good?
There is an ambiguous relationship
between travel and nature: on the one hand we want to visit and
enjoy the beautiful natural places of our planet, but on the
other hand these trips put nature under pressure. This is
largely due to the greenhouse gases emitted when we fly. The
Trees for All foundation takes care of plantations and
regeneration of woodland and invests in sustainable energy to
reduce the damaging effects of your journey. Trees absorb CO2
and sustainable energy prevents the emission of CO2.
These projects also contribute to the social-economic
development of the local population, reduce erosion, increase
biodiversity and improve the water quality. With your donation
of € 3,00 (1 tree) through Ecologico Tours some of the damaging
effects of your journey will be compensated by the project in
the Philippines, on Mali or Borneo (so we can continue to enjoy the beautiful
places on Earth).
For every donation, Ecologico Tours will also donate 1 tree.

Through their work woods have already
been planted, cultivated and protected in Malaysia, Mali, the
Philippines and Bolivia. The local populations enjoy the
benefits of the recovery of the natural environment, woodland
produce and the resulting employment. Nature has more space for
animal and plant species at risk of extinction.
