Use carbon offsets for air travel for the aggregated thousands of miles traveled to the conference. 

Explore public transportation and shuttles running on alternative fuel in Atlanta.

martaOTHER GREEN TIPS:

·     Take public transportation around town for easy access to the Hyatt Regency. If necessary, Lyft has carbon offsets. 

·     Bring your own reusable bottles and cups. Starbucks in the Hyatt Regency has a reusable coffee cup for sale for 2.00.

·     Avoid plastic bags/drink tops/coffee stirrers/drinking straws wherever possible. These cause untold agony to many aquatic creatures. 

·     Turn the air conditioning off in the hotel rooms during the hours you are away. 

·     Take shorter showers (even though many Californians are used to conserving water, it may not be obvious to those from areas where there have been heavy rains or snow storms).

·     Request NO daily towel change be made for your hotel bathroom.

·     Use Ecosia search engine and support other organizations, that plant trees in fragile areas.­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­
