Very often I feel all my tiny save-the-world efforts are going straight down the pan because of the biggest sin of my life: flying🚽✈ I have a policy of investing in peatland preservation. Per one intercontinental round-trip flight I donate 100 eur (appr 114 USD) to protect Finnish peatlands🌲🌱 I do it via Hiilipörssi (Carbon Market, www.hiiliporssi.fi). It's quite little at the end and it doesn't take away the harm that I have caused but I hope it compensates a bit 🌏💚 In my opinion flying should be taxed heavily and the taxes should be targeted to climate work. Peatland preservation is important since swamps act as major carbon sinks. If they dry huge amounts of carbon dioxide will be released to our already overheated atmosphere. Thus it's super important to take care of these treasures of the nature🌿🌲 . .
