Responsible Tourism

 

Offset your carbon footprint:

Most people who travel by air are unaware of just how much carbon their journeys produce. To put this in perspective, consider the fact that a flight from London to Madrid uses a quarter of a person’s entire sustainable carbon year (in other words, the amount of fossil fuel a person can use in every aspect of their lifestyle over 12 months without contributing to global climate change). A flight from London to Sydney uses two and a half times this ration.

 

However, travelers can “pay back the planet” for the carbon footprint produced by their journeys by making a donation to one of the many projects run by www.climatecare.org.

 

One person’s return flight from London to Lima, for example, produces 2.56 tons of carbon dioxide, which can be offset with a donation of less than $60 to one of the projects run by Climate Care throughout the world.

 

To make a donation to offset your carbon footprint and also to help people in developing countries, visit www.climatecare.org and calculate the carbon footprint produced by your international flight.
