We all travel for different reasons - to experience something different, meet new people, search for the next adventure, to relax and sometimes as part of our 9 - 5.
It is no secret that traveling by car and plane can substantially add to your carbon footprint. Often times, taking an airplane is unavoidable.
This fundraiser is all about creating awareness around travel related carbon emissions and to create an easy platform from where you can offset your impacts. I hope to raise funds for GreenPop to aid them in the amazing tree planting and environmental education work they do.
So, first things first: what is your travel footprint? Check out this useful CO2 calculator to determine how many trees are needed to offset your travels. It's as easy as entering the distance you drive or hours per flight.
All donations (R120 / tree) can be made via this givengain page which goes straight to GreenPop for tree planting and environmental education.
Happy donating, happy responsible traveling!
