Reduce air travel

Take a 'stay-cation' around your city or area. Stay-cations, also known as a vacation where you stay within your local area, are a great way to explore places and things you see every day but don't have the time to enjoy. A plane, such as a Boeing 747, uses approximately 4 liters of fuel (which consists of oil) every second. Over the course of a 10-hour flight, it might burn 150,000 liters of fuel. If you are 1 person traveling from Montreal to Vancouver and back, you are producing 1.22 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. You can calculate how many tonnes of CO2 (and oil) your next family vacation will save by vacationing closer to home by using this online calculator
