Nice post @stephenrand :D

There was so much bad press about this!

Seems that carbon offsetting has really been hitting the headlines this summer...
@Jon1's also been chatting about this in All About Renewables 🆙

It can all seem a bit doom and gloom but I think with the increased coverage, there's going to be more and more options and info on how to carbon offset.

In the meantime there's some info on this thread 😮

Actually I think the blog is sort of right. This Celebrity offsetting malarky is as bad as the conspicuous charity giving that some celebs also seem to do.

Surely we should be using less resources and those that we do use we use as efficiently as possible?

Why not just plant a tree and expect nothing in return?

Just the thoughts of a grumpy old man. 🤷*♂️
