As we all are becoming more environmentally conscience and realize the effect we have on the environment we also realize that we have a responsibility towards nature and others.
Tourism is responsible for around 8% of the total global CO2 emissions!
The good news is that trees can clean up after us, as long as we plant more of them. Through planting trees, we can offset our carbon emissionsand help lessen the impact of the tourism industry on global warming.
For this reason, TOSCO & ELOOLO teamed up to offer Na- mibian tour operators and their clients the opportunity to offset their carbon emission for their safaris and be more responsible.
The Clean Travel programme is open for all responsible operators and travellers in Namibia.
