Green Travel

Hat tip to Betmo for her call to action today about the environment.

Betmo says "it's important to note that travel is blamed for more than one quarter of greenhouse gases. before you think- 'my god- she wants to ruin everything- consider this- you can plan eco-friendly vacations. think about purchasing 'carbon credits.' many companies and non profits are sponsoring programs where consumers can use money to offset investments into eco friendly technologies and what not."

She's absolutely right. My-Climate works with Sustainable Travel International to help offset the impact of travel. They offer a presentation to Travel Agents, and I am going to take this to my boss to make our agency a member of this program. It is essential to be a part of the solution.

Thank you to Betmo for making my day a lot brighter!

wonder if it comes with free or discount Ben and Jerry's. Now that would be awesome. Good plan.

I like Mary's idea.

It's really reassuring that everyone is starting to pay attention to this issue and take some positive steps towards solving it.

Bravo, fair Diva!

The lead article in the Sunday NY Times was on the disparity of preparations between the have and have-not nations for global warming.

Sometimes I fuckin' hate money.

Diva,
You are so cool. I am so happy you are doing this. Keep up the good work. You are doing your part.

Sorry I'm late to this party, but I wanted to thank you for posting this (and Betmo too). The Frogette and I are reaching the end of what we can do to reduce our 'carbon footprint'. The one big thing left, the last frontier if you will, is travel. How can we offset airline travel and the other things that go into vacationing.
