Greener Flying

A three part article from Treehugger:

Greening of Delta Airlines

Feeling guilty about flying somewhere for a library conference?  Delta has some green options.

In late spring, Delta announced the options for those flying to donate $5.50 for domestic roundtrip flights and $11 for international roundtrip flights to help offset the carbon dioxide emissions of their flight through the The Conservation Fund to plant trees throughout the U.S. and abroad. Recently they annouced another green effort – a comprehensive on-board recycling program which includes not only aluminum but also newspapers, snack containers, soda cans and water bottles. Proceeds go to benefit Habitat for Humanity. Delta states that in the first two weeks of the program, they recycled approximately five tons of material.
