Say 'Goodbye' to Single-Use Plastic
Under the guidance of our parent company, The Travel Corporation, we’re setting our sights on a plastic-free future. Single-use plastic water bottles have been removed from our fleet of more than 25 Euro 6 compliant coaches, while we also now recycle all discarded audio headsets. Guests waiting in the passenger lounge at the Evan Evans office are encouraged to refill their water bottles with access to free filtered water, and the use of single-use plastic by Evan Evans staff members is prohibited.
Iraq Al-Amir Women's Cooperative
1993, the Iraq Al-Amir Women’s Cooperative aims to make local women financially independent, raise their standard of living by increasing their income and preserve local heritage.
The cooperative, which is managed and ran by local women, provides training projects for more than 150 women from all villages of Wadi Seer on a variety of handicrafts.
As members of the local community entirely manage it, it has succeeded in creating a number of job opportunities for women of all ages. The cooperative teaches local women how to make a variety of different heritage products, which are then sold in the gift shop and online.
NATIONAL TRUST AT WHITE CLIFFS OF DOVER
In June 2012, the National Trust announced an appeal to 'Save the White Cliffs'. It aimed to raise the £1.2million necessary to purchase the remaining 1.35-kilometre strip of land and thus ensure the protection of this iconic landmark for generations to enjoy.
More than 16,000 people and organisations donated, including The TreadRight Foundation. In November 2012, the National Trust announced that it had raised the full £1.2million, reaching its target in just 133 days - nearly two months earlier than expected.
Through the purchase, the National Trust was able to unite two separated areas of coastline and work towards preserving the natural habitat; the additional land creates more space for animal species to retreat to as the cliffs erode over time. Part of the funds raised was also committed to the long-term maintenance of the site.
