At Outbound, we are fully committed to supporting the global sustainability movement and integrating responsible practices into every aspect of our operations. While we are passionate about providing responsible transportation solutions, we understand that it is only one piece of the larger puzzle. With this, we are proud to announce our partnership with One Tree Planted, a nonprofit organisation dedicated to global reforestation initiatives.
By driving with Outbound, our users have the incredible opportunity to contribute directly to One Tree Planted’s reforestation efforts in Australia. Every time a user books a ride with us, a portion of the trip fee is dedicated to planting trees across the country, where our diverse forests range from ancient Gondwana rainforests and tropical mangroves to vast bushlands with native acacia, melaleuca, and eucalyptus trees. The trees funded by Outbound are strategically planted in areas impacted by natural disasters and also help to expand habitats crucial for native wildlife.
The benefits of reforestation cannot be understated. Beyond restoring nature and preserving biodiversity, reforestation also plays a crucial role in addressing the urgent challenge of climate change by sequestering carbon dioxide. What’s more, it helps to restore wildlife habitats, improves air and water quality, prevents soil erosion, and enhances the overall health and resilience of ecosystems. Scientists consistently recognise reforestation as one of the leading solutions to combat the climate crisis, making this initiative in line with the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
While reforestation is a key focus of their work, One Tree Planted also has a broader mission to raise public awareness about the importance of trees and their impact on the environment, and to provide a range of sustainable solutions for businesses. Through their multifaceted approach, One Tree Planted empowers individuals, organisations, and future generations to take action and contribute to environmental conservation.
The collaboration between Outbound and One Tree Planted demonstrates the immense potential for businesses and nonprofit organisations to work together to address environmental challenges. By supporting tree planting on behalf of their riders, Outbound and One Tree Planted are driving towards a brighter, greener and more sustainable future together, one ride at a time.
