Lighten your travel footprint with the One Planet Life Travel Lite Eco-Journey!
One Planet Life has created six unique journeys, each with an assigned set of actions or “Joyful Changes,” to help you achieve the goal of reducing one ton of carbon emissions each year. Changing lifestyle habits can be challenging, but if you start by focusing on a targeted area where you feel you have more control, making those changes can be easier and more rewarding. Get to know our six eco-journeys and pick the one that is best for you.
The Travel Life Eco-Journey has an assigned set of Joyful Changes that specifically target your carbon impact while on the go.
Commuting to work, taking kids to school, grocery shopping, and vacationing with family and friends are all essential parts of life. Traveling may be an unavoidable necessity, but thinking about alternate ways to get to your destination can lessen your impact. The Travel Lite Eco-Journey encourages you to seek sustainable travel alternatives when you can. Using public transportation, ride-sharing, and working remotely once or twice a week makes a huge difference over time.
Vacations are an excellent way to recharge and experience new perspectives. Become an eco-tourist by using sustainable methods of travel, following the eco-guidelines of your lodging, supporting local artisans and restaurants, and avoiding single-use plastic on-the-go. Create memorable experiences while leaving as little trace as possible.
Reducing your carbon footprint while traveling is easier when you follow the Travel Lite Eco-Journey.
If you make Joyful Changes and track your actions in the One Planet Life app for 12 months, you can reduce a total of 1 ton and 492 pounds of CO2 – exceeding your goal to reduce 1 ton of carbon emissions. That’s huge!
The Travel Lite Eco-Journey includes the following Joyful Changes:
- Work From Home
- Go on a Bike Ride
- Bring Reusable Containers
- Use Public Transportation
- Vacation Closer to Home
At One Planet Life, we understand that everyone’s journey is unique.
The journeys in the One Planet Life app are 100% customizable, so if one of the pre-loaded Joyful Changes for your selected journey isn’t applicable to you, you can swap it out with a different Joyful Change that better fits your lifestyle and still works towards your goal of reducing 1 ton of carbon emissions. We believe that everyone’s sustainability journey looks different, but all actions to help our planet are important.
Here is an easy way to jumpstart your carbon emissions reduction on the go.
