Conscious of the potential impact of long-haul travel, we launched our own carbon-offsetting initiative in 2020 with our nominated charity partner, One Tree Planted. For every client travelling with Mahlatini, we will fund the planting of one tree in reforestation projects across Kenya and Rwanda. The focus is on rebuilding animal habitats, restoring soil and critical watersheds, all while improving the lives of the communities who rely most heavily on the forests. These reforestation projects also work to educate farmers on the benefits of improved forestry practices, providing communities with sustainable sources of food, wood, and income.
The team at Mahlatini frequently revisit our favourite African destinations. To balance out our own carbon footprint, we will naturally also plant a tree for every staff flight through our One Tree Planted partnership. A small step in the right direction to limit climate change impacts.
