A Money Coach in Canada

So having tweeted and facebook statussed Copenhagen multiple times daily, I was increasingly uncomfortable with the fact that I’m flying to Vancouver for Christmas.   Emissions, much?  (well, 0.7 tonnes to be precise)

Fortunately my friend and former colleague Lucinda pointed out that I could purchase carbon offsets through Offsetters.ca.

They have a handy calculator and payment system – it took me less than 5 minutes to complete – and to my surprise cost only $20Cdn.   The money will be used to install a Windfarm near Marmara, Turkey.

I dearly hope there comes a day when travelling doesn’t pollute, or at least not nearly so much, but until then, I’m happy to cough up a little more dough to deal with it.
