National Tree Day Donation | 27-28 July
Also part of Thredbo’s 2019 Environmental Week, Thredbo has teamed up with Toyota and Greenfleet to make a positive impact on the local community and the environment. Across the weekend of 27 – 28 July 2019, guests can purchase a tree for $4.00 that will offset the emissions of their travel to the snow that is then planted regionally. Thredbo has committed to match all weekend donations dollar for dollar. Since 2014, Thredbo guests have offset nearly 8,000 tonnes of carbon emissions by planting over 30,000 trees.
At Thredbo, we have harnessed the opportunity to lead our industry and our community toward a more sustainable future, today. Together with Red Energy and Snowy Hydro, we’re proud to be powering all our major resort operations with clean and renewable sources of energy, effective 1 July 2019. This is a positive addition to the long list of environmental initiatives that Thredbo takes pride in.
