Green Edventures focus on the three “E” values: education, environment, and empowerment to inspire people to become active environmental citizens. Each of our adventure programs give participants hands-on field experience in conservation whether it be fish counts in Baja or invasive plant species removal in Kenai Fjords National Park in Alaska.
Our programs are carbon-neutral, leave-no-trace, and directly support local people by hiring them as guides and other services. In 2010 we are providing scholarships and/or providing the opportunity for indigenous kids in Alaska and Mexico to participate in local environmental education programs.
I needed a carbon-offset organization that matched our mission which is to inspire people to make a positive difference for the environment. Choosing to work with Carbonfund.org was the obvious choice because they are clearly the leaders in carbon offset programs. In addition to a quality product, I will continue to partner with Carbonfund.org for the 5-star customer service I always receive.
