I love to travel overseas at least once a year, as well as occasionally taking shorter flights to domestic destinations. However, air travel is a major contributor to pollution and the overall toll it's taking on our environment. So now I reduce my carbon footprint by making a donation to one of the 17 tree-planting organizations listed on http://www.americanforests.org/ prior to every flight I take. Donations as small as $10 are accepted, and every dollar donated plants one tree. Imagine that -- $1 plants new life that will combat pollution.
