My carbon footprint per Dopplr.com -- as of September 2007 when I started using Dopplr.
So yeah: I pretty much suck.
What I do to try to reduce my impact when I travel:
- Try to eat no meat (see: Diet for a Small Planet for the rational behind that), although I've been known to make an exception for Roscoe's House of Chicken & Waffles.
- Decline drinks & peanuts off the airplane snack cart -- goodies I don't need in packaging I don't need to waste.
- Rent a Hybrid whenever I can. I guess if I were really on the stick I'd start taking public transportation from the airport rather than cabs.
- Eat in restaurants rather than ordering take out with all that additional packaging.
Gonna get better about bringing my own coffee mug along -- so I'm not using up all those paper cups. Will probably start bringing my SIGG along too for a water bottle -- I average two plastic water bottles per trip because I have to dump it before I go through security.
But yeah: I still suck. Quite a bit.
