MySequester Project with St Francis Xavier’s Primary
CoastXP is committed to the communities and environment in which we operate, which is why in 2019 we partnered with local carbon offset company MySequester offering passengers a carbon offset alternative on every one of our tours.
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 and CoastXP recently visited St Francis Xavier’s Primary School in Belmont to conduct our first tree planting day with some of the year six students. On the day, the students were eager to get into planning the trees that Seth Williams from MySequester had brought to plant. Before we dived right into it, Seth and Dom spoke to the students about the importance of our living ecosystem and the steps we must take to maintain it for future generations.
The students were provided with instructions on how to correctly plant a tree, and how to look after it for the best chance of survival. Following a brief demonstration, the students got into pairs, gathered their equipment and began planting. The trees that were provided on the day were primarily native bush tucker trees, further enhancing the school’s terrific bush tucker garden.
The project was a great opportunity for CoastXP to give back to the local community by providing something valuable to both the environment and the students of St Francis Xavier’s Belmont. The students are now proud custodians of the trees they have planted and will take great pride in caring for them as they grow.
