THE TRAVEL YOGI
Tomorrow's Air & The Travel Yogi
The climate crisis is real. As conscious travelers, it’s important to note and mitigate our impact. While travel is important for our wellness and communities, traditional carbon offsetting is just not enough. The Travel Yogi has partnered with Tomorrow’s Air to put our travelers’ dollars to work through the super cool science of carbon removal. Want to know more? Learn about Tomorrow’s Air, how carbon removal from the atmosphere works, our commitment, and what more you can do.
What Is Tomorrow's Air?
Tomorrow’s Air is a conduit for conscious climate change. Launched in partnership with revolutionary carbon capture technology provider Climeworks, Tomorrow’s Air brings consciously-connected and sustainability-focused travel companies to the carbon removal table. Carbon removal Education and Action are the two principles that propel Tomorrow’s Air, their corporate travel partners and involved independent travelers.
How Does Carbon Removal From the Atmosphere Work?
With direct air capture, machines capture carbon dioxide from ambient air. Air is drawn into the collector with a fan and adheres to a filter within the collector. Once the filter is saturated, the collector is closed, and the temperature is increased, releasing pure CO2 which can then be mineralized or used in other products. That’s the super quick I-don’t-have-a-science-PhD version. if you want to geek out (highly recommended) on more specific/scientific info, you can head over to Climeworks for more good stuff.
Cool, right? The world’s largest direct air storage plant, Orca, will be rolling into operation in rural Iceland in September 2021.
Why Carbon Removal Technology?
Trees, the ocean and soil all absorb and store carbon dioxide. However, natural systems can take many years to absorb carbon dioxide. While we need to protect and conserve nature, we also need carbon removal technologies, like direct air capture, to help remove carbon dioxide—fast.
There’s nothing better than a gorgeous, verdant vista. Who doesn’t love looking out on a carpet of green trees? Unfortunately we’re at a point (past it, really) where Mother Nature needs a helping hand. We’re putting the carbon dioxide out there when we travel (along with a host of other activities), so let’s be the ones to help take it out too.
When we reduce the concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide, regardless of where reduction occurs, the entire atmosphere and all the living beings on Earth benefit.
