Q: We like to think of ourselves as green travellers. Should we be buying carbon offsets?

If you have a good eco-conscience, offsets are worth considering, especially if you fly often. Since 1990, carbon dioxide emissions from international air travel have jumped by 83 percent. Book with airlines that have carbon offset programs or purchase carbon offsets on your own through sites like Offsetters. Always buy Gold Standard offsets to ensure that your money goes to legitimate programs, as the offset market is largely unregulated.
