I love to travel or at least the destination part of it. I believe travel can be an important step in understanding the world and my place in it. But with travel comes a larger carbon footprint. Flying, driving, activities and hotels all create more carbon emissions. How can we be good citizens while traveling? One way is through purchasing carbon offsets. There are a number of organizations that offer carbon offsets. Carbon offsets put money towards sustainable practices that can reduce the impact of our travel footprint. Here are a number of sites where you can purchase credits.
