Welcome to Travel4Green (T4G) Papua New Guinea (PNG) official website. T4G PNG is about advocacy for responsible traveling. Everyone is a traveler, whether to another country far away from home or just within the country geographically, we all travel.
Whether it’s learning a new language or learning about a new culture and way of life, travel allows us to learn so many different things. We become educated in the diverse cultures and ways of life. We learn about how our lives are intertwined and how we can impact one another. We travel to absorb all that we can in the world.
So in the decades ago people have been enjoying travelling, exploring new things and places. No single person wants to stop travelling.
Whether we take a flight or board a seat on a vessel or bus, we are thrilled to travel.
Over the years, evidence has indicated that flying takes a lot of energy, which means releasing a lot of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Burning jet fuel releases greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide into Earth’s atmosphere and oceans. Each person travelling by air accounts for a larger amount of the whole plane’s pollution.
We inevitably emit carbon throughout our trips to contribute to the global warming that is causing the climate pattern variations and rising sea levels from ice melting from the poles.
There is no question that the planet Earth has been threatened by our flights and trips. Everything humans have need to survive, and thrive, was provided by the natural world around us: food, water, medicine, materials for shelter, and even natural cycles such as climate and nutrients.
What must we do to correct our emissions? Well, we start by doing small things such as replacing one regular light bulb with a compact fluorescent light bulb that will save 150 pounds of carbon dioxide a year.
Drive less and spend more time walk or bike. In your home, you might like to use less hot water or rather avoid products with a lot of packaging. And off courser plant a tree. Engage in community work as volunteers for cleanups in your community and educate others.
If you cannot find something convincing at your end and wanted to support other projects and programs, this is a place where you can count on as an option.
At T4G PNG, travelers from around the globe donate to help save our planet Earth and we help indigenous communities in PNG to conserve the standing forests and planting more trees.
PNG is the third largest rainforest nation in the world and has rich biodiversity. Before it is too late, we must protect them. Donate now to save the world’s last remaining lungs.
