Getting around our green globe isn’t always a green endeavor. From planes to trains and automobiles–even boats!–virtually any way you want to get around comes with environmental consequences. Purchasing carbon offsets can make your vacation a little greener.
Buying carbon offsets doesn’t have to be an expensive hassle. It’s actually becoming one of the more common ecotourism practices among earth-savvy travelers.
The theory behind carbon offsets is that as you’re contributing to greenhouse gas creation in one area, you can reduce an equal amount of pollution in another area. For individuals, purchasing carbon offsets basically means to support a green initiative or non-profit organization devoted to reducing greenhouse gas. Giving to renewable energy causes is always a popular choice. You can also support forestry projects or the safe destruction of chemical pollutants. Almost any green initiative could qualify for carbon offsets.
To calculate how many carbon offsets you should purchase, you can use an online calculator. There are a number of them out there. Each one may use a slightly different technique to arrive at your carbon footprint estimation, and how many carbon offsets you should spring for. Here are a few good ones:
You can also use a professional service, which allows you to sidestep the guesswork. Organizations like LiveNeutral and Carbonfund.org can help you “reduce what you can, offset what you can’t.” They can help you green up a single trip, or your entire lifestyle.
Working in a green job can also help with carbon offsets. Fields like wind energy and biomass development, and even jobs like planting trees and reforestation work carbon offsets into your lifestyle. That way, when you do some eco-traveling, you won’t have to worry about harming the beautiful places you’re set to visit. You can also make eco-travel affordable.
