Green Your Trip (Additional Support)
Tourism anywhere in the world impacts both communities and nature. As with any human activity, no matter how much we try to be a sustainable traveler, when we travel we generate carbon dioxide. The “Green Your Trip Program” allows you to enjoy your vacation in Costa Rica and support global environmental conservation by reducing your carbon footprint. How does it work? It’s actually very simple:
- Purchase a “Green Your Trip” Certificate for only $20 USD.
- A native tree species will be planted on your behalf in Costa Rica.
- New trees will fixate carbon emissions generated by your vacation.
- You will receive a Certificate for your donation.
Your contribution will be used to plant native tree species, which will reduce approximately the carbon footprint of a two week vacation in Costa Rica. The trees will be assigned a distinctive code, which will allow you and other sustainable travelers who buy a Green Your Trip Certificate to verify the location of your trees via an internet platform.
The Green Your Trip Program is jointly administrated by the Climate Change Alliance Program and the Corcovado Foundation. Top Travel Costa Rica is proud to support this great effort to create a more sustainable tourism industry. Please ask us about the program and consider purchasing a Green Your Trip Certificate through us on your next vacation to Costa Rica.
