...and not just for those things, but for every living thing on our planet to survive & thrive.
Here at The Adventure Photographers, every decision we make and job we take is rooted in the question - is it sustainable?
The answer is not always clear cut - but we always ask, every single time.
We all live in a 'developing' system (we don't like to say broken), but if we root our intentions in environmental sustainability, we are doing the very best we can in that system towards a better one.
We are trying, we are learning, and we are always evolving.
Each year we mobilise our team of photographers & friends to do something positive for the environment.
Trees are an incredible resource.
They suck up polluting carbon, stabilise waterways and help cool our warming climate.
They provide homes to a huge amount of life... and are great for climbing too!
We have planted hundreds of native trees in Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park on once farmed land. The 32 acres now host Scots Pine, Oak, Willow and Rowan among others which will encourage wildlife back to the park as well as helping reduce CO2 in our air.
We are working with the John Muir Trust, having brought out our team of photographers to plant birch on the open land of Schiehallion mountain in Perthshire
Each year, instead of participating in Black Friday, we have committed to helping our ocean on Blue Friday.
Our ocean provides every second breath we take
It holds almost 95% of all life
You can surf it
We are working on two not-for-profit film projects that highlight the importance of our natural places as well as adventure in them
We are always looking for inspiration on how else we can help our environment, become more sustainable and eventually leave a better place from which we started. If you have suggestions of volunteering opportunities or cool initiatives you think we could get involved in, please get in touch.
