Booked a domestic flight and after it was all done I saw a little thing saying 'offset your carbon emissions'. $5 on my credit card and I received this::
Thank you for joining with us at Virgin Blue, and with many other concerned people around the world, to help make a positive difference to the level of greenhouse gas emissions on our planet.

Your tax invoice will be emailed to the nominated email address. You can download your tax invoice clicking here.

What happens with my $5? Does it really make a difference? How big is my footprint?
