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.
We believe that eco-friendly travel is better for all of us (including the planet) and it doesn’t have to cost more than traditional travel.
We believe that sustainable travel should not be an extra cost to you.
That is why, here at Envirotels, we make it easy, fun and more affordable for everyone.
Topping the list are our customers and supporters, who are at the core of Envirotel’s business. We constantly strive to optimize the quality of the service we provide, by offering a variety of communication tools, including email support and live chat, and most importantly, by providing a seamless travel booking experience.
When we say - trees are being planted, we mean it, and prove it. You can track each tree we plant for your travel using a uniquely generated code, provided to you when you book through our site.
We are as transparent as possible, through social media and email newsletters, we keep our customers and supporters informed and engaged in carbon offsetting news, making them an active partner in driving the solution to preserving the planet for us and future generations.
We don’t affiliate ourselves with any political party, movement, or anyone else. Our only bias is towards eco-conscious travel providers (hotels, flight companies, etc.), whom we try to promote over their counterparts. Though climate change is a serious subject, we’re not trying to change anyone’s mind. We only want to provide the highest standard of service while offering a fun and engaging experience.
Envirotels is the first and (so far) only sustainability-focused travel company in the US. In addition to planting trees to offset travel related CO2 emissions, we’re dedicated to bringing you the leaders in sustainability.

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.
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.
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.
The land is located on the Piscicultura Paru farm, in Candeias do Jamari, Brazil. You can visit it here.

Depending on the species, a tree can reach full size from 3 to 15 years
