15-September-2007 : Having An Environmental Impact When Flying
Let's face it, flying is a great to get around, but it is not the most environmentally friendly method of travel. Sure you could opt to get a blimp or take your chances with a hot-air balloon, but more often than not getting on a plane makes the most sense when you have to get from Osaka to Orlando.
To offset the impacts of flying consider purchasing Carbon Offsets. A carbon offset service plants trees and plants to create a more balanced environment. As I am sure you know trees and plants breathe in carbon dioxide and give off oxygen. By planting more trees and plants there is an increased amount of oxygen, thus helping the environment.
Purchasing a tree from a carbon offset company should roughly offset the environmental impact of flying from New York to London or Atlanta to Anchorage.
Think about it helping the environment, it's not as expensive as you think. You can easily act on behalf of the global environment when working in a global market place.
