Mountain Whitewater Descents Celebrates Earth Day!

Offsets are a great way to do your part on Earth Day.

In order to celebrate this wonderful planet and our company’s commitment to environmental sustainability, Mountain Whitewater Descents is participating in the Colorado Carbon Fund’s Earth Week Campaign. The campaign asks individuals and businesses to voluntarily offset their emissions for the week of Earth Day (April 18-24). Mountain Whitewater Descents has contributed to offset 5 metric tons of its carbon emissions, Enough to cover the output from our buses for an entire summer!

Please join us in our sustainability efforts by offsetting your own carbon emissions! It is easy to contribute; all you need to do is contact the Colorado Carbon Fund (CCF) at (303) 866-2264 or email them at For every dollar received by CCF, a dollar will be spent on building clean energy projects in Colorado. This will create jobs, reduce emissions, and bring Colorado’s clean energy future that much closer to reality.

Mountain Whitewater Descents has also been participating in the City of Fort Collins’ Climate Wise program since 2009, and has achieved the title of Gold Level business for 2011 through our commitment to environmental stewardship.

Mountain Whitewater Descents also encourages all of our guests to offset their travel emissions though a local non-profit company called Trees, Water & People. The program is very simple. Find where you live (or where you traveled from) on our Carbon Offset Travel Map. The map will show you the cost to offset the full Carbon impact of your travel with Trees, Water & People (The map prices are based off of national averages for vehicle mileage). Mountain Whitewater Descents can simply add this price of your CO2 offset to the price of your trip or feel free to just leave a donation with our office staff when you check-in. If you do not wish to offset all of your Carbon Footprint from your travels, no problem, any offset donations will be accepted. In fact, Mountain Whitewater Descents believes in sustainable travel so much, that we will match all of our guest offset contributions up to $1000 each season.
