Replanting Trees in the Dolomites with WOWNature
Eco-sustainability and environmental protection are innate values of the people living in the Alta Badia region of the Dolomites. WOWNature is a reforestation project in the Alta Badia, aiming to restore the century-old forests that incurred significant damage following Storm Vaia in 2018. The Slow Fund has committed funding over three years of $3,000 per annum.
This ongoing reforestation project with WOWNature aims to visit Alta Badia for tree planting days to create a “food forest,” where visitors can forage naturally growing herbs and berries in the area. Continuing to plant new trees and adopt adult trees so they are protected in all phases of life is essential for the preservation of this beautiful area in the Italian Alps. The food forest development will eventually lead chefs from local hotels and restaurants to forage ingredients for their own menus, creating a truly unique kilometre zero approach to the Slow Food movement that the region is famous for.

How Your Trip Makes a Difference
Did you know – every time you travel with B&R it contributes to the Slow Fund?
Each booking contributes $20 to the fund which is then matched by B&R. Every traveller booked means a total of $40 is allocated to projects around the world to directly impact the environment and communities where you travel.
You also have the option to balance your international flights through our partnership with C-Level. For every flight balanced, B&R will donate $10 to the Wild Aligned, Forests without Frontiers project in Romania, connecting remnants of the great Carpathian forests.
