Insight Vacations, Luxury Gold Launch Global Volunteer Day




On 11APR, sister brands Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold, together with The  TreadRight Foundation, launched Global Volunteer Day to celebrate Insight’s 41 st anniversary and Earth Month. Together with Insight and Luxury Gold’s existing partner,  One Tree Planted, a not-for-profit organization focused on global reforestation,  some regional teams participated in a tree-planting day, while other teams engaged in other Earth Month activities including picking up litter and cleaning up shorelines.

 

In Canada, the Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold teams (pictured above) hosted a volunteer day at the Oak Ridges Trail in partnership with One Tree Planted where team members committed their time to volunteering in a local community in the GTA. While some participants recorded the growth and health of trees planted in the fall of 2018, the rest of the crew got to work extrapolating Buckthorns; an invasive species that threatens the survival of native tree species.

 

“Prior to our Global Volunteer Day initiative, which marked Insight’s 41 st anniversary, more than 40 acres of trees had been planted on behalf of Insight Vacations, Luxury Gold and our valued clients,”  said Ulla Hefel Böhler, global CEO of Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold . "Thanks to the sustainable choices made by our guests every day and the Global Volunteer Day efforts by our team members worldwide, an additional 10-plus acres of trees will be planted through the first quarter of 2019 alone.”
