About The Good Traveler
The Good Traveler was founded in 2015 by San Diego International Airport. The idea was simple: offer travelers a quick and easy way to make their air travel more sustainable. San Diego Airport wanted The Good Traveler to be different from other offset providers: easy to understand, straightforward to use, and, especially, rooted in the local community. San Diego Airport collaborated with local retailers and attractions to offer offsets from The Good Traveler throughout San Diego.
Today, The Good Traveler is expanding. In 2016, The Good Traveler selected the nonprofit Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) to manage operations and offer the program to airports throughout the United States. RMI is working to expand airport and retail partners to bring easy-to-use travel offsets to travelers across the country. In the near future, our offsets will include aviation-based sources.
