Is it possible to fly sustainably?

One of the Sisters recently shared this article about sustainable airline travel - particularly relevant at this time of year when many of us have been, or are planning, trips to visit family and friends.

While truly sustainable air travel isn’t currently possible, there are ways to fly that are less harmful than others. Here are some ideas to make your travel plans more sustainable.

  • Choose airlines that pack their flights
  • Support campaigns and initiatives to make air travel more sustainable and equitable
  • Search for flights using newer aircraft models or planes experimenting with alternative fuels
  • Consider virtual travel
  • Consider carbon offsets

If any of these suggestions catches your eye, you can learn more about each of them here.
