February 26, 2010, Newsletter Issue #19: Request Recycling

Tip of the Week

Donít be shy to ask if your chosen airline has a recycling program. According to Trash Landings, a 2006 Natural Resources Defense Council Report, airlines in the U.S.A. throw out enough aluminum cans each year to build 58 new Boeing 747s. In 2004 alone, they threw out 9000 tons of plastic. First Choice Airways, JetBlue , Singapore, Virgin and SouthWest Airlines are reported to have recycling programs. Some other airlines that were contacted claimed that their passengers cared more about prices than about environmental policies. Here's the bottom line: it's up to us as customers to voice our concerns.
