We're aiming to plant one million trees between now and 2018, to show how adventure can be used as a powerful source for good.
We're doing this in four main ways:
- By enabling 200 adventurers to set off on their own fundraising adventurers each year (we call this the #Begin initiative)
- Through a global series of Adventure Stories evenings, designed to spread inspiration and raise money
- Online donations and other partnerships
- Origin25: a series of 25 x 100+ mile journeys by Origin inflatable paddleboards
The result of our tree-planting objectives differs depending on the project and the place, but employment and training for 1000's, benefits to local communities, increased trade, access to medicines, larger wildlife habitats, stronger soils and more carbon storage are just a few of the reasons to do this.
Plus, I really love sleeping in hammocks, and it'd be cool to pop a couple of trees in the ground and a few years later go and have a kip between them :)
So, thanks once again for visiting. Please spread the word, perhaps consider taking on your own adventure, and if you can spare the cash, please do donate a tree or two on this page.
