Get a Great Hotel Deal,
Offset Your Carbon Footprint For Free

The Outdoor Economy Conference is partnering with TripZero to provide attendee-only hotel deals, and offset the carbon footprint created by travel to the event.

The average attendee will create almost one tonne of CO2 in transit. We'll balance this impact with Certified Carbon Offsets.

Here's How It Works

Your reservation enables us to fund carbon projects like the one below. Please watch the video to learn more.

These offset purchases finance amazing renewable energy, methane reduction and forestry projects that remove CO2 from the atmosphere. In turn, they reduce the impact of your trip and benefit local communities.
