Most airlines are taking simple steps to reduce passenger waste and nudge behavior....but there is a long way to go. Let’s learn a few interesting tidbits about just how much waste there is, here in Part 1.

- Did you know?

There is nearly 6 million tons of waste each year from passenger flights.

When waste lands at an airport, there's a limit to how much can be recycled - due to differing international regulations. In London, nearly 90% (yes, that’s 90%) can’t be recycled in the UK. The waste ends up being burned or sent to a landfill.

- Next time you’re on a flight, perhaps think twice about the waste you’re contributing to.
