Estimate the CO2 emissions your flight back home will generate

For all of you who are concerned about your carbon footprint, here is a link to help you determine the environemnt ‘cost’ of your trip back home! My round trip will have generated 1,483.93 Kg of CO2…….yikes!

 The ICAO Carbon Emissions Calculator allows passengers to estimate the emissions attributed to their air travel. It is simple to use and requires only a limited amount of information from the user.
