Budget Travel’s Carbon Offset Digest

We just devoured the July/August issue of Budget Travel, noting happily Caitlin O’Neil’s story on carbon offset firms. O’Neil’s story points readers toward several different carbon offsetters, going so far as to profile four “recommended” outfits: Atmosfair.de, CarbonCounter.org, ClimateFriendly.com, and NativeEnergy.com.

We liked O’Neil’s digest-like coverage of the issues surrounding carbon offsetting. She provides a very useful background for thinking through how to choose an offsetter best in line with your own values.

There’s really no longer an available excuse to avoid carbon offsetting, now, is there?
