Whether it be a jumper plane to a neighboring state or a flight halfway across the world, air travel is a main contributor to individual's carbon footprint. With about 20,000 planes active around the world, the jet fuel emitted into the atmosphere accounts for 11% of the transportation emissions in the United States alone. A roundtrip across the United States is equivalent to 1/18th of a person’s carbon footprint for an entire year. Sustainable Travel International offers a few options for individuals to offset their carbon emission contributions such as donating money to a wind farm or to a forest conservation program to help mitigate the carbon emissions. Since 2011, airlines have mixed biofuels and petroleum fuels to decrease aviation emissions. There are multiple carbon calculators, such as CoolCalifornia or Nature Conservancy, that determine which transportation alternative is most eco-friendly for the distance traveled. As the average American continues to increase their economic status, we will see an increase in air travelers, and thus a rise in the average carbon footprint. (Source: The New York Times)

THIS WORKOUT IS SO NECESSARY FOR THE NEXT TIME YOU’RE RUNNING TO CATCH A FLIGHT BECAUSE YOU ACTED LIKE A FUCKING COWBOY AND GOT TO THE AIPORT 39 MINUTES BEFORE TAKEOFF AND YOU FEEL LIKE YOU’RE ABOUT TO PHYSICALLY COLLAPSE AND DIE IN FRONT OF A HUDSON NEWS OR AUNTIE ANNE’S PRETZELS 🥨
Swapping the camper for 3 weeks in Asia feels like such a trip. It took us more than 3 weeks to drive home from Portugal but now a couple of 7 hour flights will take us half way across the world 😳 so excited for the reunions, @questfestival and ALL THE FOOD 🍜
Tension & the holidays often go hand in hand. While we can't control the stress of seeing extended family, we can control the tension in our body from travel. Try these simple stretches out as you travel to your holiday destination. And, remember to breathe!
Nose in your armpit: this stretches a muscle between your shoulder blade and neck called your levator scapulae, hand under your rear for extra pull, gently turn away from the hand under your rear, then drop your nose down and into your armpit. Avoid: bringing that shoulder up, sliding forward, straining.
Ear to shoulder: this stretches another muscle between your shoulder blade and neck called your upper trapezius, hand under your rear for extra pull, gently tilt your ear to the opposite shoulder. Avoid: bringing that shoulder up, bending, sliding forward, straining, turning - think about your head sandwiched between two boards and you have to gently sink down toward your shoulder.
Chin tuck: stack your neck back up in a supported position and stretch your suboccipital and paraspinal muscles, gently draw your head back to make a double or triple chin 😜 hold and breathe. Avoid: looking down, straining, nose should be forward and eyes should be looking at nose level.
