"Travel Bingo" Carbon Calculator Tool


Most bingos are a game of chance, but ours is a game of choice. . . 

In wanting to help promote awareness of the environmental impact of our transportation choices, we created this bingo that encourages choosing "aviation alternative" means of travel when possible. Rather than using "fast travel" methods, such as short-haul flights, that prioritize speed and cost over environmental impact, our Travel Bingo highlights mass transportation options and slower travel methods.

The "Slow Travel" movement itself encourages us to think about the means by which we journey to our destination as much as the destination itself. By choosing to travel just a week bit slower and with others, we can soak in more of the culture and place around us and help the environment too.
