PEOPLE who choose to receive travel documents electronically are providing a tree bonus for Tasmania.
Insight Vacations used National Tree Day on July 28 to break ground on its paperless documentation initiative. The result was 600 trees planted in the town of Jericho.
"Earth needs a healthy productive landscape to help our nature's ecosystem thrive and we're working with our partners on the ground to help enhance the environment's biodiversity," said Insight Vacations managing director Alex O'Connor.
"With over half our guests choosing paperless documentation we know our travellers share our passion for sustaining the planet, an so we're very excited to have officially broken ground in Tasmania, planting the first trees for our guests in our own backyard."
Since the launch of the partnership with One Tree Planted 12 months ago, Insight Vacations travellers have helped in reforesting 20 hectares of trees in devastated land throughout Northern California and Vietnam.
Choosing paper or paperless documents is at the discretion of the traveller.
