Give Back While You Travel
As well as creating unforgettable experiences this ethical family business was set up to give back to nature. Customers earn Eco Rewards with every dollar they spend that helps protect some of the most biodiverse places on the planet. Tree Hugger Travel supports the World Land Trust’s “Buy-an-Acre” programme and funds the purchase of 1,000sqm of endangered wildlife habitat every time customers earn 1,000 Eco Reward Points.
Tree Hugger Travel is owned and operated by two passionate travellers, John Whelan and Tina Satchell. The business was founded by John in 2016 after many years travelling and working within the tourism industry. He wanted to start something new, that came from the heart and gave back to the environment. “I started Tree Hugger Travel to be a business for good, to meaningfully give back to nature, and most importantly, to give travellers exactly what they deserve; honesty and epic adventures”, he said.
