San Antonio International Airport Partners with The Good Traveler to Support the San Antonio River Foundation

SAN ANTONIO (April 23, 2024)  San Antonio International Airport (SAT) kicked off Earth Day with news of a unique partnership with The Good Traveler program and the San Antonio River Foundation – along with an education fair for travelers. The first-of-its-kind carbon offset program allows travelers to reduce their carbon footprint by donating to a local non-profit organization.

“SAT chose to support the San Antonio River Foundation since the San Antonio River is a focal point for our culture, tourism and community,” said Breana Trevino, Sustainability Special Projects Manager at SAT. “To participate, eco-conscious travelers can visit The Good Traveler website and make a tax-deductible donation that offsets their flight.”

The San Antonio River Foundation shared information about the ongoing efforts to protect the San Antonio River in SAT’s Baggage Claim with travelers. Other attendees included representatives from the City’s Solid Waste Management Department, San Antonio Parks & Recreation Department, Texas Master Gardeners, San Antonio Zoo and Texas Master Naturalist – Alamo Area Chapter.

Frates Seeligson, Director of the San Antonio River Foundation, said the organization is focused on outreach, sustainability and river restoration projects.

“We are so appreciative to SAT and The Good Traveler for sharing our vision of inspiring stewardship of our most precious resource,” he said. “Whether you are a visitor, or you call San Antonio home, the river brings us all together. Through this partnership, we all can make a positive impact on the health and vibrancy of the San Antonio River.”
