It is now widely accepted that the CO2 released in to the atmosphere by human activity is contributing to climate change. CO2 is a greenhouse gas that is released when fossil fuels such as oil, gas and coal are burnt.
Each time we turn on the TV, switch on the cooker, or drive the car, CO2 is added into the atmosphere. Travel is no exception - and possibly the single most environmentally harmful impact of travel is the CO2 emissions from the flights we take.
Visit the ClimateCare website using the link below, and you too can offset the CO2 emissions from your flights by entering the relevant details into the emissions calculator and buying your offsets from ClimateCare. Alternatively On the Go Tours can do so on your behalf when you book a tour with us.
Offsetting means paying someone to reduce CO2 in the atmosphere by the same amount as your activities add. People often think that offsetting is simply a case of planting trees. However, ClimateCare do much more than that!
ClimateCare are working all over the world to reduce emissions and improve lives in India, Africa, China, and South America. Reducing CO2 emissions can be done in a number of ways. ClimateCare projects include:
ClimateCare’s projects are sustainable – On the Go Tours chose to work with them specifically because their projects not only reduce carbon but improve people’s lives.
