WHAT IS THE TRAVEL CARE CODE?

The TCC is a list of ten simple action items thoughtfully researched and designed to provide travelers with information on how they can reduce the negative impact of their travel and visitor related activities. It is available online for free use and replication. The Code was developed by graduate students, faculty and staff at the Center for Sustainability at East Carolina University in partnership with Miles Media Inc.

The Travel Care Code consists of 10 action items:

1. Learn about your destination

2. Don’t leave your good habits at home

3. Be a fuel-efficient traveler

4. Make informed decisions

5. Be a good guest

6. Support locals

7. Dispose of your waste properly

8. Protect your natural surroundings

9. Make your travel zero emissions

10. Bring your experiences home

IS THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO, BOULDER CLUB SPORTS ALREADY

GREEN?

The Club Sports program at CU is continuously making conscious efforts to diminish the program’s impact on the environment. Now is an ideal time to take action to protect our environment and make changes in how we travel and how we host those who are traveling to us to participate in games, matches, and retreats. We know little about our greenhouse gas production and its impact on the community around us. We are suggesting you don’t leave your good habits at home when you travel and that you support the Pledge to Travel Green initiative.

The Club Sports Program at the University of Colorado, Boulder consists of 31 teams and 1,500 student athletes. These clubs utilize the Student Recreational Center, Kittredge Field, Franklin Field, Business Field, Williams Village Fields, and the football bubble. Our Club Sports program is already going green by reducing the amount of trash generated from athletic events.

Club Sports Department of Recreation Services Pledge to Travel Green To eliminate cup trash from athletic events hosted on recreational fields, only PowerAde water jugs are provided for home and visiting teams. This allows athletes to access water while encouraging the use of reusable containers. Kittredge Field also has a free filtered water bottle filling station to reinforce this same concept. Throughout the new Student Recreational Center and recreational fields, recycling bins are accompanied by trashcans to allow students and athletes the convenience of recycling. Our Club Sports office’s newest green initiative is the purchase of an electric gator to transport equipment around campus and decrease the use of diesel fuel.

The new Recreational Center goes above and beyond to meet the needs of student athletes while stressing the importance and accessibility to “going green.” The new and beautiful Recreational Center incorporated various items around the facility to target LEED Platinum. This means that CU’s new Rec Center, along with many other buildings on campus, is striving to satisfy the U.S. Green Building Council’s prerequisites and earn enough points to achieve the highest level of certification. Currently, the facility is projecting a 40% water use reduction by improving water efficiency and installed on-site renewable energy, which includes solar thermal and solar panels. Construction utilized renewable materials and materials with low volatile organic compounds, including adhesives, sealants, paints, coatings, and floorings. One of the most impressive installments made by the facility is the heat recovery loop, which uses the heat made to maintain and produce ice to heat all three of the Recreational Center’s pools.





Although Club Sports at CU have taken actions to reduce our environmental impact we must further continue our efforts by following the Travel Care Code and pledging to make more environmentally conscious decisions going forward.

WHY SHOULD YOUR CLUB SPORTS PROGRAMS FOLLOW THE CODE?

Club Sports participants are leaders on their campus’ and must set a standard for others to follow. Along with Eastern Carolina University, we are the first to Pledge to Travel Green and hope to influence all other Club Sports programs within our state as well as nationally. Following the Travel Care Code will encourage environmentally conscious decisions throughout Club Sports as well as everyday life. There are over 1,500 Club Sports athletes at CU who have a direct effect on waste, natural surroundings, emissions, and energy use. Taking these initial steps and becoming more educated you can change a player, a team, or an entire program. Coming together off the field is the start of coming together on the biggest field of all, Earth.

HOW SHOULD CLUB SPORTS GET STARTED?

Club Sports at CU has provided your program with this researched based manual to serve as a guide when making sustainable decisions regarding travel with your independent club sport.

In this manual you will find a list of restaurants, lodging, transportation offerings that are striving to decrease your impact on the environment and reduce your travel footprint. We have provided suggestions for green practices, but there are endless opportunities that you and your team will discover and can incorporate as part of your quest to lessen your travel footprint.

The Ten Travel Care Code Actions LEARN ABOUT YOUR DESTINATION: Enjoy a rewarding experience by learning more about the natural environment, culture, and history that makes every destination unique.

Boulder, Colorado sits at the base of the beautiful Rocky Mountains at an elevation of 5,430 feet. The city of Boulder is known for its beauty, outdoor recreation, and active lifestyle.

Boulder is home to the University of Colorado Buffaloes and supports the needs of students academically and recreationally. Within walking distance of Chautauqua Mountain and the Boulder Creek, Boulder students never find themselves bored. Boulder also prides itself on being an environmentally friendly city, as most trashcans are accompanied by recycling bins and the city’s infrastructure accommodates walkers and bikers. In 2012, Boulder County created the Environmental Sustainability Plan, which addresses air quality, climate, ecological health, energy and buildings, health and wellness, local food and agriculture, transportation, water, and zero waste strategies in Boulder County. Visiting teams are encouraged to take full of advantage of Boulder’s outdoor recreational activities and learn from the sustainable practices the city has to offer.

The Club Sports at the University of Colorado, Boulder tallies over 110 trips per year. On average, CU Club Sports spends over $300,000.00 on travel per year. Two thirds of this travel is regional or national. CU hosts on average of 6-10 home games, per club, per year. Of the 31 club teams, five are 2014 national champions in their individual sport. Our Club Sports program is continuously growing on and off the field and hopes to continue sustainable growth with your help.

DON’T LEAVE YOUR GOOD HABITS AT HOME: While traveling, continue to recycle;

use water wisely, and turn off lights as you would at home.

Did you know if 100 travelers a day turned the TV off when leaving their hotel room this year, the equivalent of five cars’ annual CO2 emissions would be kept from entering the atmosphere? Recycling, using water wisely, and turning off the lights when leaving a room should be practiced during times of travel and at home. Be sure to prepare your home before leaving. This includes practicing the actions listed above, and unplugging electronics, adjusting the thermostat, and turning down your water heater. If you followed the daily recommended water intake of 64 oz. everyday on your week long vacation, you would use over 22 plastic water bottles. By bringing a reusable bottle, you would only need and use one. Eight billion plastic

BE A FUEL-EFFICIENT TRAVELER: Book direct flights, rent smaller cars, and keep you own vehicle operating at maximum efficiency. Once in your destination, walk or bike as much as possible.

Whether a team is traveling to Boulder locally by car, or nationally by air, we ask that you make every attempt to travel green. A single airline passenger on a 2,000 mile trip can reduce their CO2 emissions by 20% by choosing a direct flight instead of one with layovers.

Today, many airlines and rental car companies take on environmental responsibility within their corporation and aircraft fleet. Improved fuel efficiency practices, aircraft and automobile models, recycling programs, and many more initiatives are implemented to reduce the detrimental impact traveling has on the environment. When traveling by air to desired locations, it is essential to review the Travel Care Code to reduce your team’s impact.

As well as airlines, we have listed rental car services that have many sustainable practices within their company. Did you know by renting a small hybrid car instead of an SUV, a family of four can reduce their CO2 emissions by 60% on a 2,000 mile trip. Please make sustainable efforts when traveling and deciding on modes of transportation on trip sand always carpool when possible.

Airlines United Airlines United Airlines is an airline company striving towards sustainability. United Airlines alone has improved fuel efficiency by 33% and reduced fuel consumption by 85% in 2013.

United Airlines has recycled more than 23.5 million pounds of aluminum cans, paper, and plastics in 2006. They have also offered their mileage plus members to redeem their miles for carbon-offsets. United Airlines is committing to pledges throughout their company including fuel efficiency and fuel use reduction, advancing alternative fuels and sustainable products/waste management and working together with their stakeholders.

US Airways In addition to United Airlines, US Airways is another sustainable option for flying. US Airways is the only airline with a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold certified corporate headquarters located in Phoenix, Arizona. They also have LEED certified operations control center located in Pittsburgh. This airline collects and recycles batteries, phones and radios and the money from these materials benefits the US Airways Education Foundation. US Airways save 42.4 million pounds of CO2 and 13.5 million pounds of fuel. In April 2001, all paper products in lavatories were switched to EPA approved recycled products.

US Airways is one of the top airways to successfully switch to consistently making sustainable decisions.

Club Sports Department of Recreation Services Pledge to Travel Green Delta Delta is another suitable choice for sustainable travel. From 2011 to 2012, Delta reduced their aircraft emissions by 868,040 metric tons. The airline achieved these reductions by replacing older planes with more modern ones, strategic flying methods, removing unnecessary weight, improving operations, upgrading aircraft software, adding winglets, and improving fuel procedures. Delta allows passengers to voluntarily offset the carbon emissions produced from their flight. More than 277,000 trees have been planted by Delta since 2007 to combat these carbon emissions. Delta strongly believes in the generation of alternative fuels and has joined the Denver International Airport in their construction of the airport’s solar farm. Delta also joined the Port of Portland and Nike to construct solar panels to power Nike’s retail store in the Portland Airport.

Southwest Airlines Southwest Airlines makes flying with large groups easy as seats are not assigned and passengers can sit wherever they choose depending on their check in time. Southwest also provides lower rates favored by traveling teams while practicing environmental responsibility.

The airline just recently introduced the Southwest Airlines Green Plane, a test plane for environmental friendly in-flight cabin products and materials. To wash and recycle the water used to wash the planes, Southwest uses Pratt & Whitney’s EcoPower to purify the wash water for initial wash and reuse. At each gate, Southwest aircrafts consume electric power compared to jet fuel to reduce emissions when on the ground.
