TRAVEL OFFSET PROJECT
HELPING FAMILIES BREATHE EASIER

Reduce the environmental impact of your travel to Austin by supporting the Social Responsibilities Special Interest Section (SR-SIS) travel offset project. By making a tax-deductible donation to the Cool Effects Cook Stove Program, you'll be offsetting carbon dioxide pollution and helping to provide efficient, clean cook stoves to families in Uganda. By replacing unhealthy and heavily polluting cooking methods, these stoves lower dangerous greenhouse gas emissions and significantly improve the respiratory health of these families. A $6 donation offsets a ton of carbon dioxide (CO2)--the emissions for an average trip to/from Austin, Texas. Find more information on the donation page or contact David Selden, chair of the SR-SIS Task Force on Environmental Sustainability. 

We can't wait to see you in Austin!
