Fun and funny, this story, part of Covering Climate Now, a global collaboration of more than 220 news outlets to strengthen coverage of the climate story is also quite informative. If nothing else, it shows us how carbon offsetting is moving beyond the corporate sphere and into the day to day of many of us average folk. And, it offers the individual a great method for making an impact and a difference. Why limit this idea to weddings? Birthday gift? Anniversary? Mom’s day?
If you want 250 of your nearest and dearest to fly thousands of miles to celebrate with you, offsetting their carbon footprint might be a way to feel less bad about it.
