In Tiny Climate Challenge Episode 11 our Guest Experts, Paul Manasjan and Steve Statler talk about The Good Traveler, a program they co-founded to engage the traveling public to fly carbon neutral through the purchase of carbon offsets.
Their Tiny Climate Challenges for all of us is to purchase carbon offsets as individuals, organizations (private, public and non-profit), to promote sustainable conferences and events and encourage all airports to achieve carbon neutrality.
