How to Offset Environmental Debt Created by Your Short-Term Rental Investment
Reducing Tension Between Making Money & Making a Difference
Life is a tradeoff.
You ❤️ making money with your Airbnb or other short term rental, but you also want to ensure your grandkids have access to a clean future where they can hike the Pyrenees, surf off Portugal, or hunt in Alaska.
While an environmental debt is usually created by ✈️ travellers enjoying your short term rental or airbnb, it's possible to mitigate some of the carbon load and work towards a valid middle ground solution.
It's not an option to eliminate all travel in order to fight climate change and preserve the outdoors for future generations.
Solution: Self Imposed Carbon Tax for Short Term Rental Investors.
For ☮︎ peace of mind consider a portion of your profits to be donated to portfolio of non-profits working to solve climate change at the legislative, technological, or community levels.
And as a profit bonus: you can measurably market your short term rental as "green" with integrity! List the sustainability non-profit organization you invest in on your website. Showcase the good work they are doing and that you support.
The appetite for "green" vacations in growing -- and you can fill that gap as a business entity, individual, or syndicate.
