Offset Your Carbon Footprint for Free

At Cali Roots we're always looking for new ways to reduce the impact that our events have on the planet we share.  That's why we partner with TripZero to address our community's biggest impact—the carbon footprint created by travel to the festival.

The average attendee will create 1,200 pounds of C02 traveling to the California Roots Festival.  Many will create over two tons!

Here's How It Works

Step 2.

Here's Why It Works

Your reservation enables us to fund reforestation projects around the globe. As these forests grow, they absorb carbon dioxide—the main greenhouse gas driving climate change—eliminating the pollution created by your trip.

We Love: Patagonia Sur

Check out the largest native-species reforestation campaign in Chile’s history and the first to receive accreditation under the Verified Carbon Standard. The project plants native-species trees in a pattern that replicates the growth of a natural forest in Patagonia, Chile. During its lifetime, each tree will remove over 1,000 pounds of CO2 from the atmosphere.
