Where hotel guests plant trees
The Hotels for Trees Foundation contributes directly to a greener hotel world. A hotel world in which one new tree is planted each time a guest chooses to skip the daily room cleaning.
The impact of this green choice can already be seen on the Hotels for Trees website the very next day and directly contributes to (re-)forestation projects across the globe.
The financials behind this concept are no secret. Hotels that participate pay Hotels for Trees a set fee for each room that is not cleaned. In Europe this is 5 euro, in Australia 6,50 AUD and the US 4 USD.
About Hotels for Trees
Hotels for Trees is a non profit foundation established in May 2021. It started in the Netherlands and has rapidly expanded in Europe since 2022. Further expansion to Australia and the US is currently underway.
Hotels for Trees has a Dutch ANBI status (special charity trademark including tax benefits for people from Europe who donate). Similarly, for Australian and US partners, the donations are tax-deductible.
The foundation is headed by a board of three and overseen by a Supervisory Board. All donations are spent on (re-)forestation projects and used for running and growing Hotels for Trees.
