Avoid short-haul flights

Avoid short-haul flights

Learn how to avoid short-haul flights and reduce your carbon footprint. This guide shows you how to travel consciously and protect the environment.

🌍 Understanding why short-haul flights are problematic

The first step to change is understanding. Short-haul flights are particularly harmful to the environment because takeoff and landing are the phases with the highest fuel consumption. A flight from Berlin to Munich produces about 175 kg of CO2 per passenger, while rail travel only emits about 17 kg.

🚆 Discover train travel as an alternative

Trains are an excellent alternative to air travel, especially for short distances. Not only are they more environmentally friendly, but they also give you the opportunity to enjoy the scenery and travel in a more relaxed way. Also, night trains are a good option for longer trips, as you save travel time and hotel costs.

🚗 Use carpooling and carsharing

If the train is not an option, you can consider carpooling or carsharing. There are many platforms that offer these services. This way, you not only save money, but also share the CO2 emissions among several people.

🚲 Covering short distances by bike

For short distances in the city, the bicycle is often the fastest and most environmentally friendly option. It keeps you fit, you save money and it's good for the environment. If you don't have your own bike, you can rent one in many cities.

🏖 Plan a vacation closer to home

There are many beautiful places to discover that are closer than you think. A vacation in your own region or in a neighboring country can be just as relaxing and exciting as a trip far away. In addition, you get to know your home better and appreciate it more.

🛍 Supporting local products and services

By supporting local products and services, you reduce transportation and CO2 emissions. Buy food from the farmers' market, use local craftsmen and support small businesses in your city.

🌱 Create awareness for the topic

Share your knowledge and experiences with others. Everyone can make a contribution to reduce the carbon footprint. Through conversations and discussions, we can inspire others and make a difference together.
