I care a lot about the planet, but there are some journeys I cannot practically make without using a car.
Sadly I can't afford to buy a brand new electric car (and keeping my current car is probably better for the environment anyway?)
So, I've just paid to offset my car based carbon using https://www.carbonfootprint.com
It's not perfect, but it's something.
My home electricity is 100% renewable and green thanks to https://octopus.energy
If you cannot replace it, simply keep your car. I am fortunate enough to not need one so a few years ago I decided to no longer own one. But not everyone can make every journey with busses and trains. But electric cars will become cheaper as adoption rates increase, so in a few years you can probably afford one. :)
