In an ideal world airplanes would be powered by renewable energy. We aren’t there yet. Until we are, we can offset our emissions from travel using a carbon calculator and then supporting carbon-reducing measures that are roughly equal to the carbon we emit.

Follow three simple steps:

  1. Use the below calculator to determine how many metric tons of carbon you will emit in your travels.
  2. Then multiply that number by 8 to get a rough estimate of the cost of that carbon.
  3. Donate this amount to The Climate Center to offset your trip (use the donate button to the right).
