PORTLAND, Ore., July 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Last year, the Team at Envirotels started developing a new kind of travel-booking platform: one that focuses on environmentally responsible travel and accommodations. In 2020, the company has taken its mission even further with the announcement that all of its bookings will be carbon neutral. Each booking through Envirotels will now include the planting of enough trees to offset the carbon emissions associated with the booking made. Each time a customer makes a booking, Envirotels plants trees that offset the carbon emissions generated from the related travel booking. Each tree can capture more than 200 pounds of CO2 in its lifetime. "Carbon neutrality was always an integral part of our business plan," notes Founder, William Rademacher. "And like everything else we do, we took the time to get it right. We could have left the actual planting to a third party and left it at that, but instead we've chosen a more direct approach that reflects our customers' investment in sustainable travel." Currently, Envirotels works directly with landowners in Candeias do Jamari, Brazil, a location in the western Amazon, to plant trees that capture carbon emissions while contributing sustainably to the local economy.
