    In the process of searching for new challenges!
    Transport Purchase a Carbon Offset
    A round-trip flight from New York City to Los Angeles emits just over 1 ton of CO2. Imagine a giant balloon with a diameter of 10 yards. If this balloon were filled with CO2, it would weigh about 1 ton. This flight would fill just about one of these balloons. What can you do to reduce the number of flights you take per year?

    I am flying United and the carbon offset button is a bit hard to find on the bottom of your itinerary page. For round trip flight to Boston from San Francisco, the carbon offset was only $8.68, well worth the money considering how big of a footprint this leaves.

      Hey Neal, the flight was $650 roundtrip. I believe the price of the offset has more to do with the # of miles flown and the plane utilized for the flight.

      That's good to know, Kevin. May I ask the approximate cost of the flight? This would help with messaging:  Pay only around $9 on a _____ flight to offset your carbon footprint.
