Whenever I take a road trip and about two additional times a year I offset my personal carbon by planting trees!!
This is the carbon calculator that I use
It looks at your emission sources…
things like electricity and natural gas.
It can look at your annual usage personally or for your entire family
It looks at your household waste
and other things like — are you using lawn equipment?
Finally, it looks at your mobility – are you driving a car, ever ride a train, have plane travel or even if you ride a taxi?
All these activities have a carbon footprint and can be offset simply by planting more trees!
