traveling green(er) with terrapass


Though I moved 2300 miles away last year, I still work remotely for the same company. That means up to six plane trips per year for work and at least one additional trip for pleasure. I’m a reluctant member of the jet set! At least Terrapass makes me feel better about all that jet fuel. For about $18, I purchased enough “carbon offsets” — a contribution to clean energy research and related projects — to “balance out” my last trip (and I was able to automatically add it to my itinerary through Expedia). Terrapass also sent me a rubber (recycled, I hope!) luggage tag to promote the cause to my fellow travelers. I just discovered that Terrapass links to green products, too — I especially like the recycled-plastic hammock. If I’ll ever be home to lie in it. –Mary T.
