We know that transportation has a large environmental impact, but it can also be very difficult to avoid. Flying is especially bad (although there are ways to fly better) and one way to help compensate for your CO2 emissions is through carbon offsetting.
How to Carbon Offset
- Find an organization/program you like
- Calculate your carbon emissions
- If the program you want to go with doesn’t have a calculator you can use the Climate Care calculator
- Donate to your chosen program
Finally another way to help reduce your flight impact is by choosing greener airlines and airplanes, and of course opt for trains or more sustainable transportation where you can.
