In 2009, travelers forced the U.S. airline industry to throw away enough aluminum cans each year to build almost 58 Boeing 747s. They trashed enough paper to fill a hole the size of a 230 feet deep football field. This equates to 4,250 tons of aluminum

Your signature has been recorded. - One of the best new industries is that of recycling steel, aluminum and other metal products. Unlike the steel mill of past these are clean processing plants that do not use the same dirty processes as before. Give them your soda can, pet food cans, anything that is made can be recycled - we just have to make it a priority.

employees who work for these companies are probably aware of recycling. why don't they say something or do something about it?

I thought they'd already been doing it. It takes a petition to get them to do the right thing? They haven't been listening to what's going on in the world? Haha - now I bet they will say that if they have to start recycling, they will have to raise how much it costs to fly.... there are ways to recycle cost effectively, I hope they don't pull that one.

Alaska Air and Horizon do recycle (maybe because so many of plans land in Seattle which has a good recycling program)
