When you stay at a HI hostel, Hostelling International and Myclimate offer you the opportunity to offset your CO2 emissions. When you book your stay at www.hihostel.si, all you have to do is select “Customers Offset Their Overnights” as your payment method. Three international projects that create new jobs, boost local growth, and improve health receive all contributions. Since 2012, more than 6,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions have been offset.
Currently, you support one of the three Myclimate projects by compensating for your carbon footprint. The first projects will build energy-efficient stoves with chimneys made of local materials, aiming to improve the lives of the Peruvian community. The house is filled with thick smoke from the old chimneys, which consume a lot of wood that is scarce in the surrounding area.
The smoke is directed outside of the house with the help of these new chimneys, which is good for people’s health and saves wood. The locals are receiving instruction on how to construct and utilize the stoves because the project must be well-received in the community. They’re additionally being shown pretty much every one of the beneficial outcomes.
