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.
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.
Sustainable Travel International has been helping offset carbon footprints from travel for over 15 years. It supports forestry, energy, and other green projects that reduce the amount of CO₂ in the atmosphere and cut down on new emissions.

By supporting Sustainable Travel International with your cashback, you're making a difference. Protecting the environment is in your hands!
Send any amount from your cashback, and we'll match
your contribution. We're partners, like Batman and Robin or Thelma
and Louise (just with a happy ending).
By supporting Sustainable Travel International with your WayAway Plus cashback, you not only help save forest ecosystems, which absorb an enormous amount of CO₂, but also contribute to maintaining biodiversity and helping local communities develop. Every time you send some money, you'll get an email confirming that you've offset your carbon footprint.
A carbon credit represents one ton of CO₂ emissions that have been offset or avoided.
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.
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.
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.
Sustainable Travel International has made a formal commitment not to allow the resale of credits that have been purchased for offsetting carbon footprints.
