Hey there! Welcome to a new week at AT: Green Home. You might have already noticed that this month, across all the AT blogs, the theme is Escapes.
We'll actually be escaping quite a bit this month, which, unfortunately, can be far from green. We've got plane tickets, hotel reservations, we'll be driving here and there, and we're trying to figure out the best and most green way to do it all.
Sure, there's carbon offsetting ... but, honestly, we're new to it, and want to be educated consumers before making that investment.
We're also looking into car rental companies, like Avis, that rent hybrids. We'll be traveling with our own coffee mug and reusable water bottle (because, if pressed, we could survive on coffee and water alone).
In the spirit of this month's theme: How do you green your escapes? Or, what tips/suggestions do you have that might help us green ours?
Do you carbon offset? What company do you use? What has your experience been like? We'd love to hear.
