Southwest Airlines Community

Ready … Set … GO GREEN!


Happy Earth Day! Every year, Southwest celebrates Earth Day in a variety of ways—recycling cans inflight, participating in clean-up projects in our communities, and planting new spring trees and flowers at home.  This year, in honor of Earth Day, we are teaming up with our national partner, Earth Day Network and contributing to their Billion Acts of Green campaign. From April 22 to May 6, Southwest Employees across the country will engage in a competition to complete as many Acts of Green as possible. An Act of Green can be as simple as using a refillable mug or water bottle, unplugging electronics when not in use or turning off the water when brushing your teeth. Featured in the video above is Southwest’s very own, Bob Montgomery, Vice President of Airport Affairs, with his first Act of Green to kick off the competition. We invite you to join our efforts and engage your family, friends, and neighbors in going green this Earth Day and every day, as our individual Acts and collective effort can make a big impact on our Planet.
