What is offsetting?

The engines that move us burn fuel and release climate-destroying carbon, whether it’s our cars or the planes we fly in, and planes release a LOT of carbon.

While there’s nothing we can do about that (yet), we can do things to restore the balance by keeping climate-destroying gases out of the atmosphere. When you buy a carbon offset from The Good Traveler to go with your plane ticket, you are funding the work of people all over the country who are restoring the climate balance.

Some projects are growing living things that capture carbon and others are preventing climate-wrecking gases from escaping in the first place, by doing things like producing clean wind energy instead of coal-fired energy, or capturing the methane from landfills. But all of our projects are certified by authorities like those that certify organic food, so you can be sure you are supporting good work.
