To fly or not to fly?

Well, from an environmental perspective, Not to Fly obviously!

But if you've only got limited holiday time it's so much quicker to get anywhere! We were talking about how to encourage staff to take the train or car-share on their climbing holidays whenever possible and this was one of the biggest concerns (the other being price of course). Whilst we're not really in a position to offer cash for holidays (and if you book a train in advance it can be cheaper and much more convenient) we decided that any staff member who approached the management team about going on holiday and taking a slower, less carbon intensive route could be granted a couple of extra days holiday for travel.

Great for me becasue I hate flying and not just for environmental reasons!
