As part of the national Keep Australia Beautiful – Sustainable Cities awards, Amy (daughter 21) and I are travelling up to Canada Bay in Sydney on Monday, as part of the Melton Shire delegation representing Victoria.
We are only up there for the day, flying up and back in the same day. When our council invited me, I stipulated that all the flights were to be carbon offset or I would be catching the train. As it turns out, they did pay for the offsets, so we are travelling in style I suppose.
It has been a long time since I last flew. I don’t normally due to my personal values regarding a low carbon footprint, because a single medium haul flight can double your carbon emissions for the year.
Anyway, wish us luck, it should be a great day and I will post photos soon. I hope we win!
