Offset Your Carbon Footprint for Free

We're always looking for new ways to reduce the impact that our events have on the planet we share. That's why we're proud to announce a new partnership with TripZero that addresses 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 Emerald Cup. Many will create over two tons!

Here's How It Works

Book one of great hotel deals that you'll find below.  Be sure to use the links and codes below for access to these special discounts.

Click the big orange button below.  TripZero will calculate your trip's carbon footprint and erase it with certified carbon offsets.

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 Support: Patagonia Sur

Your trip helps fund 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.
