In honor of Earth Day, Virgin America partnered with Method, the eco-friendly company that produces the hand soap used on the airline’s flights, to help fund California State Parks Foundation restoration projects.
Both companies pledged $3 for every person who flew on Virgin America yesterday. Passengers also received a reusable tote that included the company’s cleaning surface wipes.
Method makes a full line of eco-friendly cleaning and personal-care products, including:
- Triple-concentrated laundry detergent
- Granite and marble polish
- Tub and tile cleaner
- Dishwashing liquid
- Stainless steel cleaner
- Foaming hand wash
The company has also published a cleaning guide that will be a hit with organic consumers: Squeaky Green: The Method Guide to Detoxing Your Home.
Virgin America prides itself on employing environmentally sustainable practices and looking at all areas of operations to reduce its environmental impact. The airline’s new fleet is more fuel-efficient, and Virgin’s share of company profits is invested in renewable-fuels research.
