Travel and Carbon Emissions
Húnaklúbburinn will be traveling to Spain this year to meet with a youth group to learn about gardening and culture. Although traveling produces much of the global emissions, here are a few tips in reducing your "footprint."
The largest part of your personal footprint is dominated by your transport; long haul flights and car and bus rides. Here’s how you can reduce the emissions:
The best thing is to stay with friends or relatives. But, if you are going someplace new, stay at hostels that try to reduce electricity usages. They help you to meet other travelers too. Take short showers, turn off the lights when you’re not using them, bring your own shampoo and soap, and reuse towels. This all helps reduce electricity usage thus reducing emissions
