I HATE how people self-described as "eco-friendly" feel the need to visit Costa Rica or some jungle wilderness to express their love for nature. They worry about recycling, drive under 90kmph, bitch about Hummers and then go and take a trip to tramp about in some delicate ecosystem somewhere in Chile The average flight will burn 150,000litres or more of highly processed jet fuel into the upper reaches of our atmosphere. And thats going ONE WAY! I could leave a Hummer running straight for ten years and not burn as much fuel as they use going on their silly trip. Do what you're doing already but travel local and buy local, you will be doing the world a favour and not being hypocritical about it either.
