Purchase Carbon Offsets

By purchasing carbon offsets before you travel, you can learn what your carbon footprint would be on a set of flights, for example. This helps defray the carbon emissions.

Leave No Trace

If you are going somewhere “off-the-beaten-path” then please remember to leave no trace behind. Dispose of trash properly, don’t desecrate native flora and fauna. Keep places pristine.
