A Green Way
to Travel

From the moment we buy a ticket online to our plane journey home, we leave behind a carbon footprint that spells trouble for the environment.

One way is to buy
carbon credits

Each carbon credit represents one ton of CO₂ emissions that have been offset or avoided. 

Buying carbon credits is an effective, environmentally friendly way to help the planet without giving up the things you love, like traveling.

carbon credits is to support

FAQ

What is a carbon credit?

A carbon credit represents one ton of CO₂ emissions that have been offset or avoided.

How can I calculate my carbon footprint?

To calculate your carbon footprint from air travel, use the Sustainable Travel International calculator or the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) calculator. You can calculate your overall carbon footprint using the UN calculator.

Where is the forest that is offsetting my carbon footprint?

At the moment, we buy carbon credits from the Envira Amazonia Project, a certified project of Sustainable Travel International. This project is protecting over 500,000 acres (200,000 hectares) of tropical rainforest near Feijó in the state of Acre, Brazil. As well as absorbing harmful emissions and combating climate change, the project contributes to conserving the habitats of many endemic species of birds and disappearing types of trees.

If the trees have already been planted what will my money be spent on?

In exchange for money from your cashback, the owners of land in the Amazon forgo planned deforestation activities. Your contribution also funds sustainable-agriculture education in the area, other community projects, and the planting of new trees.

How can I be sure the carbon credits I buy won't be resold to someone else?

Sustainable Travel International has made a formal commitment not to allow the resale of credits that have been purchased for offsetting carbon footprints. You can find detailed information about the green projects supported by Sustainable Travel International, as well as their goals and quality standards, here.
