Wait! What? Don’t fly? But why? Well, hold on right there! we don’t mean to create a fuss for you but we’re just suggesting you avoid a plane trip when you can travel by train, by road, or even on foot. After all, the easiest way to reduce carbon emissions is to avoid flying. But if you do have to fly, we recommend you avoid short distances or multiple stays. Out of all the modes of aviation, the short distances cause the most pollution per kilometer. Of course, a short flight is better than a long one but it causes more damage. instead, we recommend you to travel by train or by road if your travel destination is a few hours drive.

You’ve probably must have heard that traveling in economy class is much better than traveling in business class. After all, flying in business class is like carrying a lot of carbon footprint than any other option. First of all, business class consumes a lot of space In the plane, while the economy will carry more people but it will have a lesser impact on the environment. Secondly, you need to think about what entails to set up the airport lounges for the business class passengers. The amount of water being used and wasted has an impact on how you travel. and we recommend you to pack light since a lot of load takes a big toll on the airline more than anything In the world.

For example, if your flights are carbon-free, you can even earn a commission from the airline. Bear in mind, that this is seldom heard of, so you can rest assured about what you are doing. And you will also get to become a part of the solar panel project being run by that airline. But first, you need to make up your mind.

First of all, eat less and don’t eat meat, unfortunately, most the airlines will serve lots of chicken and meat to the passengers. But the more you eat beef, the more you will be vulnerable to fart, thus leaving a strong impact on the environment. So when you’re traveling, you need to eat fewer animal products. And of course, you will have holidays when you go home and munch on your favorite supper. But for now, we recommend you cut down on meat consumption and see how it will have a positive experience in your life.
