Carbon offset your travel
When the weather starts getting colder, many of us start thinking about jetting off somewhere warm. If you’re planning on going somewhere by plane, consider offsetting the carbon emissions your airplane causes. Although aviation is a relatively small industry, it has a disproportionately large impact on the climate system. It accounts for 4-9% of total climate change impact of human activity.
If you’ve never offset before, Gold Standard is a great organization created by WWF and other NGOs that allows you to offset your carbon footprint based on your activities and allows you to choose what cause your donation supports.
