At airports and on airlines, green is in and getting “inner.”
Airports are installing solar farms and wind turbines and getting serious about recycling food waste and other materials generated inside the terminals.
Airlines are rolling out in-flight recycling programs and having flight attendants separate the trash they collect as they go up and down the aisles.
Delta Air Lines gives its old seat covers to Tierra Ideas, which turns them into cool bags.
And now Air France is collecting old uniforms from ground staff and crew uniforms at Paris-Orly and Paris-Charles de Gaulle airports so that the clothing can be recycled as car insulation at a specialized recycling plant.
