How and Why You Can Offset Your Flights

We are living in a far more eco-conscious world with many of us wanting to do the best we can for the future of our planet and all those that live on it. There are a wide range of steps we can take to make positive changes each day but when it comes to travel this is far more tricky and most will significantly increase your carbon footprint. You’ll probably be pleased to hear that car, coach and train travel are all much better for the environment so you do have those options to weigh up when it comes to making your holiday plans but I am sure you will already be very aware that both cruise liner and plane travel will have a much larger negative impact.

Now, I am not about to ever dictate to anybody how they should be travelling, it isn’t my place (or anybody’s for that matter) but what I can do is share some knowledge and my experience of offsetting our flight this year.

Eco-Friendly Items You Can Take On Holiday

*Affiliate Links

As a family, we love going on varied holidays and trips. It is so important to us that we can explore the UK and beyond, give the children lots of new experiences and of course, make some amazing memories. Being eco-conscious, it can be tricky to always get that sustainability balance right – travel will always come with waste, a carbon footprint, things we cannot change (hello real life!) but that’s not to say that we cannot continue to try our best as we do daily at home. On every holiday we have had since starting on our lower waste journey (with cloth nappies), we have taken our favourite eco-friendly items with us and so I thought I would share with you how much that has accumulated to over the years and how we make it work.

Travel is the only thing you can buy that makes you richer.” It’s an old quote but it’s a good one, the benefits of travelling and experiencing new places are almost endless. Whether you’re relaxing on a beach or exploring new cities, a break from the routine helps us refresh and reset. No matter how fulfilling our lives are, doing something different every so often is vital to prevent fatigue setting in. Experiencing new cultures and new ways of living helps us learn not just about the world, but about ourselves. Stepping through historic streets or immersing ourselves in modern wonders helps bring life to the stories we’re told about them.
