For me, it is important to do what I can for the climate. For the future and in the present.
I choose not to fly as it affects our world negatively. I do not need to fly abroad ,and within Sweden I travel in other ways. The times I have flown during my life can be counted on one hand and most trips have been made for work. There are so many things to see and do in the immediate area and in our beautiful country and I think that goes a long way.
My family and I have also chosen not to own a car, but rent one when needed. We use our bikes very often and travel as much by public transport as possible. When we travel by train, for example, the journey becomes part of the experience and it is more fun to travel that way with the children. It is good for the environment and good for the wallet.
