In recognition of the impacts climate change will have on our oceans and coastline—the playground for surf therapy—AWOW offset the carbon footprint of the entire event. AWOW provided their waste diversion data and attendee travel along with staff and volunteer travel to STOKE to calculate their emissions. When it was all said and done, the event’s footprint was fairly minimal thanks to their recycling efforts and Goal Zero renewable power. AWOW purchased 18 tons with CoolEffect.org to offset all staff, volunteer, and attendee emissions and they hope to reduce their average event footprint through better coordinated carpooling among athletes to and from the events.
