Re: Green Travel
I have to admit I haven't been as conscious of this in the past as I should have been; I've never really sought out environmentally friendly hotels or anything like that. I did do a quick search for ecolodges in Morocco before we booked our recent trip there, but didn't find any in the areas we were visiting.
I AM planning on paying to offset the emissions from our flights to and from Morocco once I figure out which of the many carbon offset companies I should use. I'm trying to find one that's reasonably priced and supports projects other than planting trees -- not that I'm against planting trees, but I worry that they might be cut down in a decade or two and not end up actually canceling out my carbon usage, you know? I'm leaning toward Carbonfund.org, but we'll see.
