Green in Flight


Flying may not be the most eco-friendly of endeavors (to put it mildly), but here's an opportunity we don't mind advocating, if you must hit the skies. Two San Francisco-based companies have come together to make Earth Day travel a little bit lighter. Our favorite "people against dirty" over at Method Home will be giving away their chic "Plastic Bag Rehab" tote filled with their easy-on-the-planet and easy-on-the-eyes cleaning products to every passenger on Virgin America's flights this Earth Day, April 22nd—since flying Virgin America I am finding it impossible to use any other airline. And for every flier, Virgin and Method will donate $3 to the California Parks Foundation. All the while, sit back and relax in front of a seatback touch-screen that will include viewings of Al Gore's "Climate in Crisis" TED talk  (a must see!) among its green broadcasts. Don’t forget to offset your flight, though! I use or to minimize my carbon footprint. Now, kick back and enjoy the ride.
