Flying is one of the worst offenders when it comes to polluting the atmosphere. But there are a few simple steps you can take to offset the negative impact of your jet trips.
1. First ask yourself: do I really need to get there on a plane? Consider alternative forms of travel first, and fly only when absolutely necessary.
2. If you must fly, at least buy electronic tickets to save energy and paper.
3. Fly on newer aircraft, which are more fuel efficient.
4. Buy credits to offset the environmental impact of your trip.
