Day 1 – Carbon Offsets

Given that I just posted a lengthy piece about my new “green resolution” challenge, this first actual resolution post will be quite brief.  The first change I propose to make was inspired by the reason for starting the blog – awareness of my increased carbon footprint.  My recent flights to and from California were prime examples of this, so I will be purchasing carbon offsets.  And I vow to purchase carbon offsets for any further flights I make in the next  year.  I considered resolving not to fly for a year, but with family in Florida and Newfoundland, that’s not realistic.  I’d rather cough up the dough than strap my toddler in a car seat for 14-24 hours.

I’m open to any suggestions on good places for buying carbon offsets.  I’m going to start with the David Suzuki guide I found:   http://www.davidsuzuki.org/publications/resources/2009/purchasing-carbon-offsets/
