For all Airstreams made in 2021, we will plant enough trees to neutralize the estimated carbon emitted from driving your Airstream during the first year of ownership.1 This also includes the estimated carbon emitted during the manufacturing process as well as the transportation of Airstreams to our North American dealer network.
Introducing the Caravan to Carbon Neutral: A partnership between Airstream and the National Forest Foundation to reduce the environmental impact of Airstream travel. Join Airstreamers everywhere on the Caravan to Carbon Neutral. Purchase carbon reduction kits, neutralize your carbon impact, and make the world a more beautiful place to travel.
Your First Year Covered
Tax-Deductible and Direct Support
Carbon Reduction Kits are available for purchase through Airstream Supply Company via the The National Forest Foundation – meaning 100 percent of your tax-deductible purchase directly supports the NFF’s tree-planting program.
Display Your Dedication
Decals, flags, virtual badges, and plenty of pride come with your purchase of Carbon Reduction Kits. Find a good spot on your Airstream, and be sure to leave room for new decals every year. And keep a lookout on the road for others who’ve joined the Caravan to Carbon Neutral.

1Carbon sequestration is facilitated through the National Forest Foundation’s (NFF’s) existing tree planting program. NFF has committed to use best efforts, along with the United States Forest Service to complete tree planting within twelve (12) months of receipt of funds; carbon sequestration estimates through tree planting are calculated using the value of .5 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) sequestered per tree over its estimated lifetime of 100 years. The estimated 118,405 trees required to sequester the targeted carbon was calculated using Airstream sales forecasts for 2021, findings from an internal customer usage study, greenhouse gas equivalency calculators developed by the Environmental Protection Agency, Bureau of Transportation Statistics fuel efficiency estimates for gasoline-powered vehicles, publicly reported estimates from Mercedes-Benz, an Airstream aerodynamics study, and tree carbon sequestration estimates from the United States Department of Agriculture.
