The Carbon Offset Fund
Be Part of the Solution
Eckerd College is offering the opportunity to offset your carbon emissions by supporting sustainability efforts on campus. The Carbon Offset Fund is a simple and effective way to reduce your overall carbon emissions from school sponsored travel. This carbon offset represents a real reduction in greenhouse gas emissions to balance the emissions you are producing by flying overseas.
Instead of paying money to a third-party company, Eckerd is going to apply the fund directly toward sustainability projects around campus. The money collected from this year's trips will go to a designated project chosen by students. For more information on the Carbon Offset Fund projects, visit Sustainability at Eckerd.
Here is a list of offset amounts for each Winter Term 2015 trip based on calculations from Carbonfund.org.
