FOUNDER'S MESSAGE

Thanks for visiting StayVerde!

 

I'm a professor at Minerva University, where students travel around the world as part of their education. Like a lot of my students, I'm addicted to travel but I'm worried about its impact on climate change. I created StayVerde so any traveler can use their hotel bookings to support climate causes. I chose Booking.com as StayVerde's partner because millions of travelers trust them, they have low prices, and you can filter for hotels that use sustainable practices. StayVerde sends the sales commission to causes at the forefront of the fight against climate change, like Clean Air Task Force.

Some people argue that we should stop traveling because of the climate crisis, but I disagree. It's true that global tourism accounts for ~10% of greenhouse gas emissions, but tourism supports ~10% of the world's jobs, and in many countries the tourism industry is one of the most accessible paths out of poverty. For travelers, exploring the world is one of the most life-changing and transformative activities. I see it in my students and I experienced it myself. Without travel I would be less confident, I would have a different job, and I would not have met my wife. My life would be totally different!

With StayVerde, travelers can easily take action to minimize the damage of travel while experiencing the benefits. The sales commission from each booking may be modest (usually around $5-10 per night), but together we can truly make a difference in the fight against climate change. I hope you join me!
