Engage

A Community Focused Tour Company in Newcastle

Around 70% of the earth’s surface is covered by water. Our small startup on the Hunter Coast aims to showcase what makes our portion amazing, but it’s about more than us.

This is why CoastXP supports a range of local community groups, not-for-profits and social ventures; the reason being is we believe every business has the ability to do good, so by participating in CoastXP experiences you are doing your part to help our community.

Elasmo

Elasmo is a Newcastle-based social apparel brand with the key mission of protecting, educating and conserving the marine environment and the animals which inhabit it.

Elasmo is committed to making a difference through their beach clean-ups, local school-based education programs and events. Their shared love for the ocean is what drives these ocean warriors to do good and create awesome threads.

25% of all elasmos (Elasmobranchii) – sharks and rays are endangered.

At CoastXP, we believe the ocean has done so much for us, it’s time to give back. This is why 100% of the profits from the sale of our baleen t-shirts go to supporting Elasmo and their mission.

Sustainable and organic ‘Baleen t-shirts’ can be purchased when booking a tour, or via the Elasmo website.

MySequester

MySequester is a carbon offset marketplace connecting individuals to landholders. The marketplace acts as a small scale carbon offset system letting individuals directly offset their carbon footprint for the activities they participate in.

MySequester was founded by Seth Williams after a trip to India whereby Seth witnessed first hand the devastating effects of environmental destruction and how critical tree planting and reforestation projects can be to a community’s overall sustainability. Hence MySequester’s mission is to encourage business, groups and individuals to calculate their carbon footprint in order to help fund a public incentive pool which directly offsets carbon emission through self-directed reforestation projects.

At CoastXP we do everything we can to minimise our environmental footprint, which is why we have partnered with MySequester and are delighted to offer passengers a carbon offset alternative on every one of our tours.

MySequester aims to change the lack of transparency and community connection within the carbon offsetting process, by keeping projects local. This is why our partnership commits to only planting trees along the Hunter Coastline.
