Sustainable Travel & Tips Chicago
Chicago is a great city to explore sustainably. From biking to public transportation, there are plenty of ways to get around the city and reduce your carbon footprint. Here are some tips for having an eco-friendly experience in Chicago.
Chicago has an extensive public transportation system, making it easy to get around the city without a car. Not only is it more sustainable, but it’s also a great way to see different parts of the city. Plus, you can use the Ventra card, which is a contactless smart card that can be used on all buses, trains, and metro in the city.
Eat locally sourced, vegan food
Chicago is home to many great restaurants that use locally sourced ingredients. Eating locally grown food not only supports the local economy, but it also reduces the carbon footprint of your meal by eliminating the need for transportation of ingredients from faraway places. Plus, it’s a great way to try new and delicious food.
If you choose for a vegan meal, you can also save a lot of emissions. The production of a hamburger emits almost 5 times more emissions than the same weight in tofu (Milieu Centraal).
Offset your carbon emissions
If you do need to fly to get to Chicago, offset your carbon emissions by donating to a carbon offset program. These programs help to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere by supporting projects that reduce emissions elsewhere.
By following these sustainable travel tips for Chicago, you can have a great vacation while reducing your carbon footprint and helping to protect the environment.
