Crested Butte, Colo., May 15, 2018– Montanya Distillers, a craft rum distillery located in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, takes another step to integrate sustainability into every aspect of its business. The distillery has partnered with terrapass® to offset its carbon emissions from distilling, business travel, outgoing freight and inbound shipping. 

Through the partnership, Montanya is offsetting about 52 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (MtCO2e) this year. The offset will help fund a Forest Management Project, which absorbs and stores about 2,500 more metrics tons of CO2each year than neighboring forests. This project is equivalent to taking about 550 cars off the road each year. The sale of carbon offsets is a critical way the forest is funded since it doesn’t rely on taxpayer money.
