It becomes a duty and necessity for us to preserve and protect the environment that we are living in
San Jose, Costa Rica (Vocus) October 20, 2008
Today NatureAir, the world's first certified carbon neutral airline, announced the official launch of its Nature Blog. The blog was created to help educate readers on sustainable travel and keep people informed and involved in Costa Rica as an ecotourist destination. Nature Blog provides an educational outlet for people to share and exchange information on ecotourism, global warming, climate change and its impact on the world.
NatureAir as an airline is working to combat the effects of global warming by using carbon credits from every passenger to help conserve Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula, one of the region's most biologically diverse rainforests.
"It becomes a duty and necessity for us to preserve and protect the environment that we are living in," said Alex Khajavi, Founder and CEO of NatureAir. "We are the users of resources and this should motivate us to protect and to give back to the environment."
Nature Air's blogger, Naturally Larry, offers information relating to the efforts of people and institutions that make a difference, helping to create a balance between commerce and conservation amidst the backdrop of some very serious global issues, like climate change, and sustainable travel. In addition, NatureAir's flight captain will be sharing his stories from the sky. This column will give readers an inside perspective on what it means for this pilot to be an integral part of a sustainable airline.
The blog was created to be a social networking educational outlet. Travelers, pilots and professionals in all fields are encouraged to share their stories and thoughts about Central American travel, ecotourism, global warming and climate change.
