At Southwest Airlines, we are committed to environmental sustainability, taking meaningful steps to respect the environment, and mobilizing our People in ways that make a positive impact. In honor of Global Volunteer and Earth Month, our People contributed to our overall impact by learning, serving, and giving. Throughout April Employees across the Company served over 7,100 volunteer hours, sharing their love for our environment and our communities.
Check out some of the fun ways Southwest put its Heart in Action throughout April:
Employees had a ball making seed balls - plant a seed and flowers will grow! The San Antonio Center Team hosted two events, making dozens of seed balls that will be planted to help create pollinator habitats.
On the corporate campus, Employees joined in the pollinator fun making seed balls, while others were digging in and cultivating the Southwest Airlines Community Garden.
Employees in Denver helped beautify classroom gardens at Clayton Early Learning Center. While our Cohearts in Houston came together at Seawolf Park in Galveston, Texas for a beach clean-up.
Team San Jose started the month at Second Harvest Food Bank sorting fruits and veggies for distribution to families in need and topped it off with a clean-up project at the Guadalupe River Park Conservancy.
Not to miss out on the fun, Employees from Los Angeles spent a day in the sun, volunteering alongside LAX Coastal Chamber and other community members at the Earth Day Wetlands Clean Up. And Employees in Hawaii were part of the solution, not pollution during their beach clean-up!
