For many of us, traveling around the world has helped us connect with nature and understand the importance of protecting it. Unfortunately, we often have to take long, carbon-intensive flights to have these experiences.
Air travel accounts for about 2.5% of global CO2 emissions. To better understand the impact of air travel, let’s say you are traveling from New York to Los Angeles and back—an economy class passenger on a return flight from JFK to LAX accounts for about 1450 pounds of carbon emissions!
By offsetting your flight, you can show appreciation for the planet and help defend it. With this offset, you will reduce 250 pounds of CO2 for each hour of flight time.
This offset supports projects that have been vetted by the American Carbon Registry, Verified Carbon Standard, and the Climate Action Reserve.
