Carbon Offset Program
The $20 Climate Conscious option neutralizes the emissions of your Reunion attendance through the Colgate University Reunion Carbon Offset Program. In partnership with Patagonia Sur, Colgate will plant and maintain four native-species trees on your behalf. Classwide participation among spring reunions would result in the creation of a 15-acre Colgate University Forest in Patagonia, Chile. Collectively, the forest’s 7,600 trees would absorb more than 5.8 million pounds of CO2.
Want to participate? Complete the Carbon Offset Program portion of the form while registering for Reunion 2015.
