I haven’t flown in 21 years, my husband only a few times. We lived/worked abroad for many years, so we figured our carbon footprint was already pretty large.

When my husband and I retired 22 years ago we chose to live in the woods, stewarding 100 year old trees. We’re long time vegans, grow much of our organic food, drive as little as possible and stay put. We have an efficient wood burning stove, recycle ashes and char to the soil. We buy many items second hand. We continue planting trees on these 20 acres.
