What does "Fly Green" mean?
Traveling by plane can have an environmental impact from the carbon dioxide emissions released during the flight. Carbon dioxide, the most prevalent of greenhouse gases, directly contributes to global warming. StudentUniverse is now offering the option to all customers to help balance the impact of the carbon emissions released during your flight. You can go out and see the world while helping protect it at the same time.
When you purchase carbon credits, StudentUniverse will allocate enough Verified Emission Reductions (VERs) to balance the carbon dioxide emissions created during your flight. The VERs purchased by StudentUniverse are sourced from high-quality renewable energy, methane capture, and conservation-based forestry projects located in the US and China. StudentUniverse estimates the GHG emissions from all our travel booked based on national statistics for average flight distance per ticket (footnote), and we purchase carbon offsets in this amount.
