Steps towards becoming Carbon Neutral - #3
1st September 2021


One return flight from London to the Middle East uses 3 tonnes of CO2. This is well above the sustainable average of 2.3 tonnes of CO2 a year which we should all be aiming for. By reducing the number of flights we take now, maybe our children and grand-children will still be able to fly to enjoy the world like we have done

As we begin to make plans for when lockdown is lifted, travel is at the top of many peoples list. 

This year has taught us the importance of local. Whether that is connecting more with your neighbours, shopping locally or exploring the parks, woodlands and other open spaces within a walking distance from your house. 

Can we incorporate this while still having the excitement of a holiday abroad? The answer is yes!

“Building back better” – Think about holidaying in the UK:

  • Visit Britain has lots of fab tips on the best places to go in Britain.
  • Walking Holidays UK offer great trips across England Scotland and Wales.
  • Flight Free UK have great resources including a podcast focusing on how people have adapted to a flight free lifestyle and how you can too.
