With graduation just around the corner, the Spring is an exciting time of year. Whether you are planning to travel outside of Colorado Springs at the end of the academic year, or have family and friends coming to join in year-end celebrations, travel has an environmental cost.

Want to help combat the environmental cost of you or your visitors’ Spring ground or air travel? The Office of Sustainability has a travel offset calculator that allows you to offset the carbon impact of any travel you do. The offsets we purchase go toward landfill gas destruction projects in Colorado, Utah, and Oklahoma, which prevent greenhouse gases from entering the atmosphere and contributing to climate change.

Buying offsets is easy – simply input your start and end points and our calculator does the rest! Do your part to combat climate change by offsetting your travel here: www.coloradocollege.edu/offices/sustainability/resources/travel-offset.html?com
