Green Your Thanksgiving: Get There Responsibly
Tip #3: Travel green.
Thanksgiving is one of the year’s biggest travel events, so if you’re flying to see family or friends, consider offsetting your flight: TerraPass and Carbonfund are good services by which to do so. If you’re planning a long-distance drive to your gathering of choice, do what you can to carpool: Find shared rides at Zimride or on Craigslist, but use common sense in regard to safety. Look into public transit too: Amtrak or another train service could be going right where you are — and you can read or work during the journey. If you’re close enough to bike or walk there and back, those human-powered options are best of all. Bonus: You’ll burn off some of that massive feast you’ve consumed.
