Carbon Offset Program
If you are traveling this summer, you should consider contributing to The Nature Conservancy’s carbon offset program. I contribute whenever I fly or if someone comes to visit me.
When you offset your carbon footprint you help to reduce climate change and restore critical wildlife habitat. Your contribution to The Nature Conservancy’s carbon offset program will help fund projects that produce measurable reductions in greenhouse gasses.
With the rise in awareness and concern about the effects of climate change, voluntary carbon offset programs have begun to proliferate in the United States and around the world. Such programs vary greatly in terms of their methodologies and offerings.
Contributing to the offset program isn’t going to be a substitute for your lifestyle changes. If you must travel by plane and are concerned about your carbon footprint, then offsetting is one way to help the planet.
