The Company

Envirotels is an Online travel platform with a mission – reduce and offset travel-related carbon emissions.

For each booking made on our site, we plant trees in the Amazon rain-forest in order to offset the associated CO2 emissions.

In addition to offering the traditional online booking services, such as hotels and flights, we provide eco-friendly travel information, tips, resources, and best practices for the Eco-conscious traveler.

The kicker - Our custom search tool allows you to filter hotels and other travel activities based on their sustainability practices.

What We Do

  • We’re offering a vast amount of travel services with a focus on sustainable practices and eco-friendly providers.
  • In order to offset travel related carbon emissions, we’re partnering with landowners and farmers in Brazil who plant CO2 capturing and revenue-generating trees in the Amazon rain-forest.
  • We’re sponsoring tree planting activities from our revenues, keeping prices as low, or lower, than those of our competitors.
  • When a booking is made, we calculate how many trees will be required to offset the resulting emissions and plant the appropriate amount of trees in the Amazon.
  • After booking your travel arrangements with Envirotels, you will receive a unique link to the exact location of your trees. This “digital contract” can be used to view and track progress at any given time.

How we offset CO2 emissions

Planting a tree image.

In order to offset travel related CO2 we plant trees in the Amazon rainforest. Trees capture CO2 and we plant them each time a booking is made.When a booking is placed, we assign a token number to the order. The token represents the longitude & latitude coordinates of the plot with the planted trees.

TreeTracker

Our proprietary TreeTracker tool allows anyone to track the tree planting efforts.Our plot in the Amazon rainforest is divided intosections, each square contains a minimum of three trees.Each booking earns you a square, called a Token.Want to visit your trees virtually? Navigate to the TreeTrack page on our site, and search either by first name or by your token number.

The added benefit

  • Employment opportunities for the local community
  • Flora and fauna - rees provide nourishment and act as shelter for local animal and human inhabitants
  • Animals - rainforest animals require lush vegetation, vast terrains and well, a rainforest made out of trees

Trees

Land capacity:
Current section measures 30 to 40 hectares, which allows 30.000 to 40.000 trees to be planted. Once all of the trees in one section are planted, we move on to the next section and the next after that.

How long does it take for trees to reach full size:
Depending on the species, a tree can reach full size from 3 to 15 years

How much carbon does each tree capture:
One tree offsets 150 kg (330 lb) of CO2 during its lifetime
