Sustainable Travel International
February 12, 2010

Today my middle school aged children can explain carbon offsets but whenI started hearing about offsetting greenhouse gasses, in the pre-Inconvenient Truth days five or six years ago, I didn't understand why climate change had the scientific community so concerned. That is when I first became aware of STI. I heard STI's founders explain the science behind climate change and learned that it was something that I could not only understand but something that I could find some ways to address in my own life. I have been a great admirer of their work ever since then.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Making the community of people who are market travel products more aware of the environmental impacts of their work. STI inspires and enables people to consume natural, cultural and business resources more efficiently.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find the resources I needed to add more staff. they are stretched way to thinly.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

They make complex issues addressable.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

These folks are following their vocations.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Be ruined.

Ways to make it better...

STI had more sufficient resources to keep people up to speed on progress and setbacks impacting the health of communities that share our planet.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Funding.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Time is wasting. Many of the world's most unique places are facing environmental and cultural threats that could destroy the cultural inheritance that has been built up by local peoples over thousands of years. Organizations like STI defend us all.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

MY ROLE:
General Member of the Public & I have purchased carbon offsets through STI but perhaps more importantly, I have made lots of small changes in my day to day life to reduce my own carbon footprint.
