If you are someone who is concerned about the environment, it can be difficult to justify traveling in a plane because it is so harmful to the earth. But, sometimes you just have to fly somewhere and there’s no other solution. Even though you have to fly, it doesn’t mean you can’t offset your carbon dioxide emissions! Here are some easy things you can do to help.
Although it is nice to get a flight where you have the whole row to yourself, it is actually better for the environment if the airplane is packed. This is because if more people are being transported it is more efficient to use the same amount of fuel. You can do this by taking a cheaper airline as more people will probably gravitate to the cheaper price.
Plant a Tree
A lot of airlines or other companies give you the option to plant trees in order to offset your carbon emissions. This is helpful because trees clean the air for us, and with so much deforestation happening, we need more trees now more than ever.
If you are on a plane, say no to single-use types of plastic, such as the cups and food ware that you might get offered.
