Warning: Twavel can be addictive and lead to environmentally friendly behaviour!
“Twavel plays two important roles.
First, it allows users to easily calculate the CO2 emissions that are associated with their travel choices.
Second, it allows friends and colleagues to compare their CO2 travel footprints, enhancing motivation to find less polluting travel choices.

Twavel makes it fun for you to make green travel choices and shows how even the little differences you make soon add up to a significant benefit to our environment. Track your travel choices and see how much C02 you can reduce!
At its heart is a powerful carbon calculator that is easy to use because it allows you to quickly record your travel by distance or time, and mode. A dynamic baseline allows Twavel to track your rate of carbon emissions and show your trending day by day. You can compare how you are doing to other Twavel users around the world and be a part of the cumulative CO2 reduction of all Twavel users.
Your carbon footprint is displayed as a unique Twibble character that changes between 5 different looks based on the choices you make in the ways you get around. Your Twibble will become a wheezing, machine-beast, or a clean-air loving friend, it’s up to you!
Twavel offers a fun way to enable a dialogue about climate change with your family and friends and employs proven community-based social marketing techniques to motivate positive behaviour change. Let your kids add your daily trips in Twavel so they can learn about reducing carbon emissions while caring for their Twibble. Share tips on low-emission living with like-minded people through Twavel’s built-in social networking, all the while earning points that you can use to buy your Twibble cool accessories, such as: a pirate hat, a bow tie, or a crown.
