If you have to make a longer way to be with your loved ones at Christmas, plant trees to compensate your CO2 emissions.
Just calculate your emissions and plant 5 trees per ton of CO2.
Car: 139 grams per passenger kilometre
Long-distance bus: 32 grams per passenger kilometre
Public bus: 75 grams per passenger kilometre
Train (long-distance): 36 grams per passenger-kilometre
Train (local transport): 60 grams per passenger-kilometre
Tram/U-Bahn: 64 grams per passenger-kilometre
Plane: 201 grams per passenger kilometre
So if you travel 1,000 kilometres to your family by plane, you have to calculate: 1,000*201 grams = 201,000 grams = 201 kilograms of CO2 per person. To compensate this, at least one tree must be planted. Or better two, because the emissions from your onward journey from the airport to your destination will also be added.
By the way, planting trees is very easy, we will be happy to handle this for you: for every donated Euro, we plant one tree.
How about vegetarian - or even better - vegan food on Christmas holidays? Online you'll find lots of great recipes that will make Christmas special this year. And best of all, you can save a lot of CO2.
For comparison: the production of one kilogram beef causes 300 kilograms CO2. By avoiding meat at Christmas (and of course also during the rest of the year) you can save a lot of CO2.
