Greening Your Travel: Eric Carlson on WAMU Kojo Nnamdi ShowWritten by Paul Burman
Today Carbonfund.org President and Co-founder Eric Carlson was on WAMU-FM's Kojo Nnamdi Show today to discuss green travel for the holidays. Eric was a featured guest in the first half hour along with Nancy Young, Vice President of Environmental Affairs for the Air Transport Association. It is no secret that your carbon footprint is affected by how and where you travel. For many of us this holiday season, we will be taking planes, trains and/or automobiles to be with our family and friends. But will the planet be worse off because of our travels? It's why we encourage everyone to take responsibility for our travel-related emissions. By supporting quality, third-party validated carbon reducing projects, you can mitigate your carbon footprint from traveling. You can learn more about your carbon footprint and carbon offsets, calculate your carbon footprint from travel, and offset your footprint by visiting www.carbonfund.org. For those of you who don't live in the DC area, the Kojo show is a beloved radio talk show on our local NPR station, WAMU.
