Forests trap carbon dioxide in their bark, wood and roots.
EcoStay aggregate contributions from our member hotels, and invest directly in local conservation projects that plant trees and protect mature-growth forests to offset global CO2 emissions. This collective exchange adds up to a sizable flow of investment to meaningful restoration and conservation of native woodlands that would otherwise be lost to logging or commercial development.
Forests capture and store carbon dioxide and are recognized as a leading solution in the fight against rising CO2 levels worldwide. Our projects support local wildlife and forestry conservation in two essential ways; new planting as well as preservation of existing old growth forests. New trees take years to develop their carbon-absorbing powers; mature forests are already doing the job. Existing forests are also home to a diversity of plants and animals, some of which are endangered. Sadly, logging and development are depleting our forests at an alarming rate and projects like these seek to slow and prevent this loss.
All EcoStay projects are validated by third-party auditors and tracked on public registries, ensuring each and every contribution is making a world of difference.
