Firstly, Climate Spectator has reported on the research you may have heard on the news as well. Click here to read the article. Then, Crown Melbourne announced a 'carbon neutral' option for rooms - and it costs so little to offset your stay, at $3.80 extra per day down to just 65c per day for a conference room. This is an 'opt in' system like the airlines.
While these businesses are buying carbon from overseas projects at the moment, once there are Australian Carbon Credit Units available, you might be able to assist an Australian farmer as you sleep!
We will soon be announcing our first Carbon Neutral company - a company which we have assisted to walk through this mine field. A regional business that's leading the way in this area.
A word of warning on these prices - If we are to assist our own farmers to become and maintain sustainable (regenerative) practices, the price of a tonne of carbon cannot be as low as what is offered overseas at the moment. HOWEVER, don't forget you will be assisting an Australian farmer to improve the Australian air!
