I care a lot about the planet, but there are some journeys I cannot practically make without using a car.
Sadly I can't afford to buy a brand new electric car (and keeping my current car is probably better for the environment anyway?)
So, I've just paid to offset my car based carbon using https://www.carbonfootprint.com
It's not perfect, but it's something.
My home electricity is 100% renewable and green thanks to https://octopus.energy
Today I have changed my gas tariff to carbon offset my gas usage too.
@g0lfp the small extra I pay goes to projects that either absorb the carbon my gas usage generates (e.g. Tree planting) or prevention of other carbon emissions, a common way is by providing or improving the efficiency of cooking equipment in developing economies.

I know it's not ideal, but it's better than nothing.
