Offset your travel

Travel season is upon us. I am sure most of you are going to be flying one place or another in the next 6 months. If you use Travelocity, they make it simple to offset the carbon emissions for your trip. You are able to select an option to “go zero” while you are scheduling your flight. The price for this service ranges from $10 for a weekend trip to $40 for a week long trip. For official instructions on how to do this, visit their page. If you don’t use Travelocity, you can use any of the numerous services that exist to offset emissions that are created through day to day activities. As Laura mentioned in a comment on an earlier post, you can use http://www.carbonfund.org. To calculate the carbon emissions from a flight, click here and scroll down.

    Hi,

    I work for carbonfund.org. Thanks for the mention!

    We various carbon calculators, one of which you mentioned, the flight calculator. We also work with Orbitz. We’re buried in their main site, or you can simply go to eco.orbitz.com.

    Also, we have a blog as well (http://www.carbonfund.blogspot.com/). Please check it out sometime.

    Thanks again!

    Erika
