DISPOSE OF YOUR WASTE PROPERLY: Leave a beautiful place for others to enjoy.
Recycle where possible, and always dispose of your waste with care.
Think reusable when you drink. Always travel with a reusable water bottle and seek out water refill centers around campus. In the Northwest corner of Kittredge Field, a free filtered water refill station is available to the public. All trashcans are accompanied by a recycling bin, but in the rare case that a recycling bin is not near by or full, take it in your own hands to collect the materials and find the nearest recycling bin or recycling center.

PROTECT YOUR NATURAL ENVIRONMENT: Be mindful of the plants, animals, and ecosystems that you impact. Avoid feeding wildlife; stay on designated trails, and strictly follow all fire restrictions.
Chautauqua Park and the Boulder Creek Path are beautiful recreational areas for visitors to enjoy the outdoors. When visiting Chautauqua Park and the Boulder Creek Path, we ask that you please pick up after yourself, respect others, and use passing signals on the multiple trails.
MAKE YOUR TRAVEL ZERO EMISSIONS: As an additional step, consider the option of purchasing carbon credits to fully offset your travel’s impact on climate change.
In order to be an effective, competitive Club Sport, you must be able to travel. Last year, the Club Sports of University of Colorado, Boulder had over ____ teams visit Boulder. When traveling, please continue traveling sustainably and responsibly. Whenever your team is flying, please purchase an offset if available, or take the initiative to find an organization that can do this for you. Typically when you make a contribution to an organization, your money will support a project of the organization’s choice. These projects are typically associated with protecting standing forests, improving forest management, and/or planting trees. All organizations and projects are different. Many organizations allow you to choose which project your offset is contributed to. Research each project offered and choose which one where you believe your contribution will matter most.
BRING YOUR EXPERIENCES HOME: Continue practicing your sustainable habits at home, and encourage friends and family to travel with the same care.
Club Sports nationally have a duty to be role models and set standards for others on campus as well as the community that surrounds them. The Travel Care Code is a set of guidelines to make traveling sustainable and enjoyable. When traveling to Boulder, by dining at independent restaurants and lodging at sustainable establishments, you are significantly improving the lifestyle of the Boulder community and environment. Continue your team’s environmental responsibility at home by supporting local businesses; recycle, use water wisely, and turn off all electronics and lights as you leave a room.
This Pledge to Travel Green Travel Care Code manual was developed by Meaghan Stertzer, Club Sports athlete and team captain at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Funding for her research position was provided by the Center for Sustainability: Tourism, Natural Resources, and the Built Environment at East Carolina University, and is a joint effort of the Center and the CU Campus Recreation Center. The University of Colorado at Boulder and East Carolina University are the first two collegiate club sports programs in the nation to adopt the Pledge to Travel Green effort.
The Club Sports Pledge to Travel Green program is a research and programmatic effort of the Center for Sustainability: Tourism, Natural Resources, and the Built Environment, through its Travel Care Code Initiative (www.travelcarecode.org).
