The fastest and most effective way of reducing your environmental impact is to not fly at all!

It takes 77 gallons of jet fuel for one person to travel from New York to LA on a commercial jet plane.While there are new, more efficient technologies on the way in the airline industry, air travel is not expected to have a lower carbon footprint anytime soon.

So when you can't avoid flying and your trip is absolutely necessary there are a number of things that can help your lower your travel impact. Read on for tips for greener air travel and how to reduce your greenhouse emissions from air travel through carbon offsets.
