Thanksgiving Air Travel Offset
Flying home for Thanksgiving? Or joining the throng of rebels that fly to more exotic destinations for the holiday? Airlines for America estimates that 27.3 million passengers will be flying around the globe on US airlines this Thanksgiving holiday. While the aviation industry is making strides in fuel efficiency and carbon reduction, you can take direct action to offset the impact of your personal travel this Thanksgiving.
By purchasing our Air Travel Offset you can balance your travel carbon footprint while supporting a wide range of innovative carbon reduction projects throughout the U.S.—at our most affordable price. U.S. Carbon Offsets represent projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions across the United States. These projects capture, destroy or reduce harmful greenhouse gases emitted from sources such as animal waste, landfills, fossil fuel use or refrigerants.
One Air Travel Offset balances the carbon footprint of your air travel for distances up to 5,000 miles round trip and represents the reduction of greenhouse gases equivalent to two metric tons (or 4,410 pounds) of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e). Traveling further than 5,000 miles? Purchase multiple Air Travel Offsets to cover additional miles. And if you're not traveling alone, don't forget to offset the travel of your family members, too.
