When you travel abroad it doesn’t mean you have to rack up a lot of carbon emissions. Part of reducing what you can, offsetting what you can’t is planning ahead. If you’re thinking of a trip to Western Europe in the coming months, be sure to check out Dorian Yates’ Green Earth Guides. Already Dorian has written guides for France, Spain and just recently Switzerland. You can make your trip a more authentic experience and more eco-friendly if you experience local foods and flavor. Biking around the country can also help you see the sights better. Dorian’s books are also now available for Amazon’s e-book reader Kindle. When you’re booking your trip or back from it, please consider offsetting your emissions in support of Carbonfund.org’s third-party validated carbon reduction projects here.
