Help Offset Your Carbon Footprint

Travel Justly is dedicated to greening the Reform movement, from our institutions to our congregations to our daily lives.

When we travel, we fly and drive long distances, stay in hotels, and eat out more often – all activities that emit significant amounts of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions, the leading cause of climate change.

But the work of tikkun olam, repairing our world, does not just happen at home. We can help build a more just, more sustainable world by offsetting these carbon-intensive activities associated with our travel.

One hundred percent of funds collected through Travel Justly are allocated to greening and sustainability projects in Reform congregations, camps, kibbutzim, offices, and local communities. Last year, Travel Justly collected and allocated more than $10,000 to projects that reduce our carbon impact!

Installing solar panels on a congregation’s roof or breaking ground on a local vegetable garden at camp are just a few examples of how we can collectively reduce our Movement’s impact on the environment - helping to offset those times when we produce more.

Labor-Friendly Travel

"You must not oppress your neighbor." (Leviticus 19:13)

Each time we travel, we interact with myriad people and communities, seen & unseen. Countless livelihoods rely on these interactions. We can take steps to ensure that our travels have a positive impact on all people, including hotel and transportation workers.
