CALGARY — Basecamp Resorts has partnered with One Tree Planted, a non-profit organization that focuses on global re-forestation efforts.
Basecamp Resorts will donate a percentage of each guest reservation starting May 1, 2023. For every $1 donated, one tree will be planted in either Alberta or British Columbia, with the goal to plant 75,000 trees annually, to help restore local forests, create habitat for biodiversity and make a positive social impact around the destinations that Basecamp Resorts operate in.
“We recognize the profound impact that the tourism industry can have on the environment. This partnership with One Tree Planted will mark a significant step towards helping to replenish our forests, removing carbon from the atmosphere and further promoting sustainable practices in the hospitality industry. Our properties are located in the heart of some of the most pristine natural landscapes on Earth and with that privilege comes great responsibility,” sways Geoff McLean, co-owner and VP of Marketing, Basecamp Resorts. “By partnering with One Tree Planted, we are making a commitment to take an active role in not only sustaining these lands but also in supporting a global environmental issue that needs immediate attention.”
