  • Reflection Question
    Transportation Choose a Carbon Offset
    A round-trip flight from New York City to Los Angeles emits just over 1.5 tons of CO2—per person. That’s a lot of carbon! What can you do to reduce the number of flights you take per year?

    Most of my family and friends are back in the northeast, so it's hard to give up flying completely, plus there are beautiful places in the world I still want to see. Offsetting my flight emissions at least reduces my guilt. I could commit to one flight home for family and one vacation flight per year.
