eola's green initiatives launched

by Joanna Mills

Becoming a sustainable company working to preserve the environment and look after the planet is central to our goals at eola. As a young company we are committed to working to support causes and actions which have a positive impact on the world around us. 

We are thrilled to announce several environmental initiatives, taking our next steps on the journey to becoming a fully green and sustainable business.

eola beach cleans

Clean waterways and coastlines are crucial for many of our partners. Last year we took part in our first beach clean whilst on a company wide trip to Cornwall, where we worked our way along Fistral Beach collecting bags of abandoned rubbish, from container lids, to beer bottles and plastic wrappers. We collected several bags on our walk, having lots of fun along the way.

Our first tree-planting initiative

We have announced a partnership with the Future Forest Company to create the eola forest, an initial step in a long journey to become a carbon positive company. 

In December 2021, we planted a tree for every booking made through the eola marketplace.

The Future Forest Company’s goal is to plant 50 million trees by 2025 whilst investing in carbon sequestration technologies like biochar and enhanced weathering.

Adopting animals from the Wildlife Trust

The Wildlife Trust does incredible work maintaining ecosystems by protecting animals across the country. This is why last year we adopted 50 animals from various trusts around the UK. Ranging from seahorses to dolphins, we have gifted these wonderful creatures to our partners. The money contributed will go towards the Trust’s conservation work, from managing nature reserves to creating new habitats. We hope to adopt a lot more animals going forward and keep contributing this great cause.

As we continue to grow, our initiatives will grow too, and will lead us towards becoming the company we have always wanted to be - one that works consistently towards creating a better world with our partners and keeping sustainability and the wellbeing of the planet at its core.
