If You Are Flying to or Importing Food From New Zealand

You are committing a double act of eco-terrorism!

On a return flight from the United States to New Zealand, each visitor produces about 7.4 metric tons of CO2 pollution; a UK visitor produces about 17.64 metric tons of CO2 [Note: Driving an average passenger car in the US over a year, traveling 12,500 miles (20,112 km), which burns about 581 gallons (2,200 liters) of gasoline, produces about 11,450 pounds (5.2 metric tons) of carbon dioxide. A couple on a return flight from the US to NZ produce as much CO2 as driving their car for about THREE years! A European/UK couple on a return flight to NZ produce more CO2 than in EIGHT years of driving.]
