Travelling affects the climate and the environment that we live in and depend on. To protect our climate, we need to try to alleviate the effects of travelling by plane, car, boat, train, etc. Not an easy task in today's world!
The Global Forest Fund has been established by the Foundation for Environmental Education to offset CO2 emissions from travel. This non-profit fund is managed by the International LEAF Director. The fund invests 90% of its income directly into tree planting and other CO2 compensation efforts that are combined with environmental education activities.
