Flight shame no more, hemp carbon offset is real
Flight shame or flygskam is an anti-flying social movement, with the aim of reducing the environmental impact of aviation. It started in 2018 in Sweden and gained traction the following year throughout northern Europe. Flygskam is a Swedish word that literally means “flight shame”. The movement discourages people from flying to lower carbon emissions to thwart climate change.Source: Wikipedia, link below
Air travel is responsible for 2% of the world’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, with carbon dioxide (CO2) gas the main constituent. Aircraft emissions also have additional, negative effects because the waste gases are released directly into the upper atmosphere. Planes typically fly at 35,000 feet (over 6 miles/10 km up) and the type of aircraft, the kind of flight, and the load factor (how many passengers are on board compared to capacity) have a big impact on the emission profile. So, a full, long-haul flight has a reduced impact on the atmosphere per passenger, compared with a half-full, short-haul flight.
Enjoy truly carbon neutral flights in 2022 with hemp carbon offsets
Many airlines now offer forestry carbon offsets to passengers, or fund offsets themselves. An issue with forestry is that it can take 30-40 years to show a net CO2 benefit. Do you really want to be offsetting the flight you took today in 2062? If not, try hemp for air travel carbon offset in near real-time.
