In honor of Earth Day 2023, we are proud to announce our partnership with One Tree Planted - a non-profit organization that focuses on global reforestation efforts. This partnership will mark a significant step towards replenishing our forests, removing carbon from the atmosphere and promoting sustainable practices in the hospitality industry.

As a company, Basecamp Resorts recognizes the impact that the tourism industry can have on the environment. We’re proud to call Western Canada our home, with each of our properties located in the heart of some of the most pristine natural landscapes on Earth, and with that privilege comes great responsibility. In partnering with One Tree Planted, we’re making a commitment to take an active role in not only sustaining these lands but also in supporting a global environmental issue that needs immediate attention.

As part of this new initiative, Basecamp Resorts will be donating a percentage of each guest's reservation starting May 1st, 2023, and for every $1 donated, 1 tree will be planted in either Alberta or British Columbia. Our goal will be to plant 75,000 trees annually which will go a long way towards helping restore local forests, creating habitat for biodiversity, and making a positive social impact around the destinations that we operate in.  Over the coming weeks, we will introduce a tree planting tracker on our website which will enable our guests to track our progress and witness the collective effort made towards revitalizing our forests. There will also be more information regarding specific tree-planting projects that we will be supporting along with details about our tree-planting events that we will be curating and other ways for the community to get involved.

Since 2014, One Tree Planted has planted over 92 million trees in 80+ countries. By focusing on strategic locations and carefully selecting the right types of trees to plant, One Tree Planted is a prime example of how smart planting can be a highly effective way to tackle the issue of deforestation to promote and grow sustainable forests.

Our commitment to sustainability runs deep and we're proud to have implemented a wide range of eco-friendly best practices across all of our properties. We've taken a proactive step towards reducing food waste by implementing composting. We’re also working hard at eliminating all single-use plastics by providing filtered water stations and have introduced refillable soap dispensers with all natural, locally sourced soaps. Moreover, we're actively promoting environmentally friendly housekeeping practices by providing room cleaning after check-out or as-needed, rather than on a daily basis. With these measures and many more to come, we aim to create a more sustainable future for our guests and the communities that we serve. Many of our properties are also BUILT GREEN®

It is our promise to the community that we continue to strive towards a more eco-friendly approach to hospitality so that future generations can continue to enjoy these mountains that we know and love for years to come.
