Ready, Offset, Go! - JetBlue Offsets All Customers’ Travel for the Month of April

Apr 30, 2015 9:30 AM ET

JetBlue Airways recently announced its eighth annual “One Thing That’s Green” initiative. To celebrate Earth Month, the airline partnered with Foundation, a leading environmental non-profit organization, to offset the carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases (CO2e) for all scheduled flights from April 1 to April 30, 2015. Since 2008, JetBlue has partnered with Foundation, allowing travelers to offset part of the carbon footprint from their flights by making a donation to support carbon reduction projects. To date, JetBlue has purchased offsets totaling more than 350 million pounds (158,000 metric tons) of COand CO2e emissions.  

If you didn’t have a chance to travel in April, you can still purchase offsets for future travel. JetBlue is purchasing offsets for scheduled flights for the month of April to help raise awareness and is encouraging customers and TrueBlue members to purchase offsets for their own future travel. To help encourage this effort, the city whose TrueBlue members donate the most TrueBlue points to via during the month of May will receive a new greenspace, such as a park or garden, to help breathe new life into their local community. The winning BlueCity will be announced in June 2015.
