Hey Earth, Looking Good with 9800 Tons of Waste NOT in Landfills!

Adventurer A
Happy Earth Day!  You read that headline right—with the help of our green-conscious Customers and Employees, Southwest diverted more than 9,800 tons of material from our landfills and into recycling facilities since our co-mingled recycling program began in 2008.  That’s the weight of about 232 of our red-bellied Boeing 737-700s! 

This milestone wouldn’t be possible without our Employees operating with a green filter, so thank YOU to them and thank you to our Customers for encouraging us and letting us know that caring for our Planet is important to you.

Earth Day Stats

The next time you hear your Flight Attendant ask for your recyclables toward the end of the flight, thanks for helping to reduce the impact on the environment by passing them along.  Together, we can protect our Planet for many years to come!
