1 Pack Light + Fly
Economy Sure, business class may be swankier than economy class, but the latter actually produces a smaller carbon footprint. How so?

Secondly, business class flights come with more facilities, such as airport lounges and spas – all of which use up lots of water and produces lots of waste.
Also, pack light. Less luggage means the airplane uses up less fuel than if it has to transport heavy suitcases.

Compared to driving or taking a cab, mass transit is a much greener way to travel, because it uses less fuel per passenger. Even better, explore by foot. It’s a great way to experience any place and make new discoveries off the beaten track, and – bonus! – you get to clock those 10,000 daily steps.
