Glo-Ed in numbers:
Since our inception in February 2017, we have donated over $15,000 to charities and worthwhile causes around the world. We have planted 1000 trees in 2019 for each passenger carried since we started. We have supported 13 different causes, from the Earth Trust to Water.org and offset nearly 175 tonnes of CO2.
As well as our ad-hoc donations to a variety of different causes each year such as the above, we have ongoing annual commitments to the following organisations:
