Kimkim Trips 100% Climate Neutral Starting Earth Day 2019

April 20, 2019 OTA News No Comments Email Email

Starting on Earth Day (April 22), all trips booked through kimkim will be 100% climate neutral (including international flights, and not just carbon offset).

In a collaboration between kimkim, our travelers, and our local specialists we will support 3 projects: forest protection in Zimbabwe, biodiversity support in Peru, and clean air cookstoves for families in India. Beyond offsetting the environmental impact of our travelers’ trips, each project has a meaningful impact on the local community as well. We expect at least 10,000 travelers will be a part of this initiative during the first year.

You can find more details here: Kimkim Climate Neutrality Initiative.

Examples of the Impact
– For a family of 4 traveling from the US to Asia, kimkim will fund approximately 2 improved cookstoves for local families in India, which reduce smoke and toxic emissions by 80%.
– A couple traveling to South America will help protect around 3 acres from deforestation in the Peruvian Amazon and invest in sustainable nut farming practices.
– In Zimbabwe, travelers will support training and education for local communities in the Lake Kariba area, in addition to forest preservation projects.

Mandatory, Shared Responsibility
The contribution is shared between kimkim, our travelers, and our local specialists, and is not optional. In addition to offsetting the full climate impact of each trip, the initiative supports sustainable development by investing in local skills, training & education, local infrastructure, and microfinancing opportunities.

Given the urgency of climate change and the reluctance of many governments and corporations to take action, we would love for you to lend your credibility and reach to share this important message with your readers and help amplify its impact.
