Nature regeneration

Flying is polluting. It emits CO₂ and accelerates global warming. With temperatures on the rise, biodiversity and ecosystems are declining rapidly. While nature regeneration won’t make our flights any greener, it’s a way to help damaged ecosystems. That’s why we support 3 nature regeneration projects. Discover what these projects are, where to find them, and how they support local communities.

What is nature regeneration?

Forests act as the world's lungs by absorbing CO2 and releasing clean oxygen. That’s why it's crucial to protect them. Flying is polluting, and nature regeneration cannot reduce the environmental impact of our flights; it’s a way to help ecosystems recover from harmful human activity.

Nature regeneration projects address multiple issues, such as:

  • Soil infertility
  • Biodiversity loss
  • Food insecurity

What is CO₂?

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a gas that plants use to grow. But when there is too much CO2 in the atmosphere, heat is trapped around the earth. This is what leads to global warming.

How nature regeneration works

How nature regeneration helps a damaged ecosystem varies per project. Sometimes, it's as simple as planting trees; other times, local communities are engaged as stewards of the regenerated areas. This enables them to earn an income through sustainable farming activities.

The regeneration of nature only becomes meaningful when we make lasting improvements. Hence, it’s crucial to consider the local ecology and economy. For example, planting the wrong trees in the wrong place can lower biodiversity and weaken ecosystems rather than make them stronger. That’s why we’re careful in choosing our projects.

How you can contribute

You too can contribute to nature regeneration. After booking your flight, you can add this option to your booking via MyTrip. We do not profit from the funds collected for nature regeneration.
