Are You Carbon Neutral?

The Globe and Mail has an interesting article on the growing trend of being carbon neutral. The article profiles a handful of companies that are providing this 'service.' It's interesting to note that Green My Flight is the only such programme that is certified by Environment Canada's Environmental Choice Programme.

I bought some 'credits' for Jeannette for her last birthday, having just found out about it a week before. She would often drive up from Massachusetts to visit me, and i often felt a little guilty. I still sort of see this whole trend as just a way to assuage guilt, but i have to admit it's pretty effective! Even though i read through every bit of the website, it still didn't make very much sense. All i knew was that i was somehow funding a wind energy project.

I still have about 14 and 1/2 miles left, I think.

Oh wait, I drove to Starbucks eight times yesterday. Make that 7.83 miles.
