Travel Abroad

College is the perfect time to travel or study abroad, be it for the summer, a semester, or the entire school year. Of course, families travel too! Experience a new culture and natural surroundings, get out of your comfort zone, and learn from others. Catch the travel bug and see where you end up!

Purchase Carbon Offsets

There are several ways your company and your home can compensate for carbon emissions and energy use. Carbon offsets represent a reduction in emissions, through investment in renewable energy or reforestation. Many organizations and companies such as Carbon Fund and the Nature Conservancy offer carbon offsets.
