I’m becoming ever more aware of the impact my actions have on the environment – particularly through travel.
I’m “on the road” for the next four weeks and travelling to three different countries by air, using rail where possible and driving where necessary too.
The total mileage flown is 1,414 Miles
The resulting emissions are: 0.26 Tonnes of CO2
The cost to offset this CO2 will be £1.93
I am surprised so see that the cost of offsetting is so low – particularly as a percentage of the ticket price. The site makes it easy to contribute to a number of carbon offsetting schemes.
Personally I think it’s better not to emit the carbon in the first place however as I travel for my work and choose to do so socially then offsetting seems like a start at least. I use the train where I can and drive a hybrid vehicle which again is a start though I am concerned about my impact on the environment and will continue to think about how to reduce it.
