As human beings, by simply existing on planet earth, we leave behind an unavoidable carbon footprint. Balancing our desire to preserve the beauty of the land we get to live on with our hunger to explore more of it is challenging. Flying by plane is detrimental to the environment, yet when local communities benefit from tourism, they become partners in saving the planet. At International Yoga, we believe that world travel and yoga have the power to transform. As a travel company, we also understand our responsibility to sustain and protect the beautiful places we get to visit and enjoy.
We are committed to traveling in a way that is respectful of local people, their culture, and the environment. That's why we've decided to partner with Carbonfund.org to offset our unavoidable energy expenditures. Carbon offsetting is a practical and effective way to address climate change by contributing to projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and support a more sustainable future. A carbon offset is a reduction in emissions of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases made in order to compensate for emissions made elsewhere. If you are taking a flight from San Francisco to Thailand, for example, you can purchase a carbon offset to account for that specific environmental impact. That money supports a project that reduces greenhouse gas emissions and your carbon footprint!
We invite you to join us in reducing our carbon footprint and contributing to a more sustainable future. Head to International Yoga’s Carbonfree® partner page to calculate and purchase offsets for your flights. With your participation, we can help conserve the areas that we have the privilege of visiting. We thank you for your contribution and look forward to traveling with you soon!
