Air Travel

People are usually surprised to find out how much pollution comes from commercial air flights. Large jets burn about a gallon of fuel per second. On a cross-country flight, every single passenger is responsible for about 100 gallons of fuel use.

The easiest way and also the most cost-effective way to cut down on these emissions is simply not to fly. Particularly if you're a business traveler, you can cut down on the number of trips you take by combining trips or conducting meetings by telephone.

If you have to fly, look for direct flights and book economy class tickets, both more environmentally friendly options. Finally, consider offsetting the greenhouse gas emissions from your flights by funding clean energy projects online.
