Happy Earth Day from 5,000 ft ๐ŸŽˆ

The earth + land we float over sure is a beauty, and it's all of our responsibility to keep it that way ๐ŸŒŽ

Making a few small swaps to your lifestyle has a big impact on the environment! Here are a few to get you started, to keep our planet beautiful + sustainable โฌ‡

๐Ÿ› BYOB (bring your own bags) to the grocery store to reduce the need for single use plastic bags

๐ŸŒฑ Offset the carbon dioxide you produce by adding plants to your home, which naturally produce oxygen

๐Ÿฅก Swap out single use items (like to-go food containers) for Tupperware + washable silicone bags

โ™ป Don't forget to recycle! Give items like plastic + glass bottles another life simply by putting them in the recycling can

What sustainable swaps are you making this Earth Day? We'd love to hear them ๐Ÿ™‚

Briefly touching the top of water in-flight doesn't happen often, but it's a fun treat for passengers when it does happen! ๐ŸŽˆ

Up, up and away in my beautiful balloon ๐ŸŽถ

Did you know hot air balloons are powered by propane, the same fuel used in your grill? ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Hot air balloons are able to float because warm air rises, and the burners (powered by propane) reheat the air to keep the balloon rising ๐ŸŽˆ

Utilizing propane means hot air balloons are environmentally clean aircrafts. The propane used to provide the balloonโ€™s lift is completely burned with no residual fumes or exhaust, keeping the desert + skies looking beautiful ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

We say it time + time again, if you are afraid of heights, you will be just fine on a hot air balloonโ—

The sensation of floating in a balloon is similar to looking out the window of an airplane - where things feel almost surreal, and it is hard to distinguish how high up you are. Plus, there's no turbulence in a balloon, as we fly with the wind (not against it), so your ride is peaceful + calm โ˜

Have you flown with us + are afraid of heights? Share your ballooning story in the comments, we'd love to hear it ๐ŸŽˆ
