VTSU outdoor programs and FlipFuel

Fueling Vermont State University VTSU Outdoor Adventures

FlipFuel helps with efficient fuel management and more for VTSU outdoor programs.

By Kelvyn Abreu, Vermont State University

The outdoor education university program is excited to partner with Flipfuel and utilize their innovative product in our planning phase for our expeditions. Our program is dedicated to providing hands-on, experiential learning opportunities for our students, and the FlipFuel® fuel transfer device will allow us to enhance our planning prior to getting into the field.  

In the outdoor education leadership and tourism program at Vermont State University, students can earn a Bachelors of Science in Adventure Education, Mountain Resort Management, or both! In these programs students are immersed in outdoor environments, learning about leadership, environmental ethics, and outdoor education theory. (Minors and Associates options are also available.)

With Flipfuel's device, our program will have the ability to combine isobutane canisters for our stove fuel, creating a more efficient and sustainable cooking method during our planning phase for expeditions.

We generally use canister stoves twice during our ultra light backpacking trips. Flipfuel allows us to not have to pack a half canister of isobutane into the field.

As an environmentally conscious program, we are committed to reducing our impact on the natural world while still providing meaningful outdoor experiences for our students.

Flipfuel's product aligns with our values and allows us to continue our mission of providing immersive outdoor education experiences. While also minimizing our environmental footprint by combining and properly recycling the used isobutane canisters. We look forward to incorporating Flipfuel's product into our program.
