If you do this action, you could earn another 1 point [add to points]

If you wanna save a little CO2, use the airport lavatory before you board the plane, not the one on the plane, since the fuel used for every mile-high flush could run a car for 6 miles. Each lavatory visit emits 5.6 lbs of CO2 due to energy used flushing the toilet (airplanes use powered vacuums, not gravity like toilets at home).
