4 Tips for Greener Air Travel

This time of year, many of us will jet to a far-off destination to visit family and friends. Or for some, a much-needed holiday get-away is just the ticket. But here’s an interesting fact to be aware of before you reserve your flight: Airplanes produce more carbon dioxide during take-off and landing than they do while they’re in-flight. That’s why, environmentally speaking, you should always try to book a direct route when you travel by air. Plus there’s less chance of lost luggage!

Want to learn more about how to make your next flight more environmentally friendly? Check out “4 Tips for Greener Air Travel,” a blog we presented a few years ago with more tips for reducing your environmental “wingprint” during the holidays and beyond!

We have opted to drive to our in laws this year, instead of flying. The decision had more to do with traveling with three small children than aiming for an eco-friendly approach.. but for future travels I’ll keep this post in mind! <3

While flying is so convenient, I can’t think of a quicker way to travel overseas. Driving is usually my go-to and I find the sights one sees while travelling in a vehicle outweighs flying, to be sure.
