|Doga Tip: Hydrate Well|
In a few weeks I'll be traveling by air to watch my son receive his MBA. It's kind of a bummer that this will occur on the same weekend that Blogpaws convenes, but family is first for this green gal. And while I'm flying--burning all that jet fuel--I am heading to William and Mary in the knowledge that I have done my part to support the carbon offset projects created by Terra Pass, fighting climate change and reducing my carbon footprint.
You're probably thinking this was an expensive offset to purchase, right? The surprise was on both of us. While purchasing my tickets from Expedia.com, I was offered the opportunity to buy these offsets for each of the passengers--family members. I jumped at the chance to try it and was thrilled to find that the cost was lower than I ever imagined. For well under $10 per person, I was able to course correct for the the damage our flights cause to our air quality and the environment as a whole. So we're all traveling with a Terra Pass certificate and feeling really green--even Oliver! Give it a try when you book your next trip.
What's more, you don't even have to be traveling to do your part. You can purchase a year's worth of carbon footprint correction for your kitchen emissions here, or you can give the gift of a cleaner environment by purchasing an offset as a gift. Who knew?!!!
While learning more about Terra Pass online, I discovered a Conference Carbon Footprint Calculator on their site. I'll bet Blogpaws or Global Pet Expo would find this very interesting. Fascinating stuff for travelers who want to know how their journey affects the environment, and more importantly, what they can do about it.
So Oliver and I are off soon to enjoy family graduations--more than one actually. Shortly after my son earns his MBA as Valedictorian of his class, my daughter-in-law will make us equally proud as she earns her Juris Doctor in preparation for a career as an Attorney and Guardian ad Litem. I'm beaming with pride as I think of them all. Let's celebrate!
