We understand that changing your life for the good of the environment can seem challenging. It doesn't have to be. If we all offset or pledge to do One Thing That's Green to reduce our carbon footprint, together we'll make a big difference.
Your carbon footprint is a measure of the greenhouse gas emissions produced from your daily activities, including the energy used to heat your home, make your clothes and food, and fuel your car and air travel.
The average American is responsible for more than 50,000 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions each year. That's about 140 pounds a day!
Here are two ways you can reduce your carbon footprint.
1. Offset your lifestyle today
Through our partner Carbonfund.org, you can calculate your carbon footprint and offset it by contributing to greenhouse gas reduction projects.
JetBlue and Carbonfund.org are making it easy for you to help in the fight against climate change by balancing out the emissions created by your flight. You can help by supporting carbon reducing projects, such as a reforestation project in Louisiana and a wind farm in Texas.
