For those of you who have been keeping up with Meghan’s posts about environmental sustainability and its importance to the airline industry, I’m sad to say that Meghan has gone back to school and is no longer interning at Delta. On the flip side, I am now working as a co-op here in the Environmental Services department at Delta, and I’ve been given the privilege of keeping up with her blogs. My name is Kelly Stiegel, and I’m a 2nd year Earth and Atmospheric Science major at Georgia Tech. I wouldn’t call myself a true tree-hugger, but I do believe that we as individuals can do our part in order to keep our planet healthy for our kids and grandkids. I drive a hybrid SUV and recycle everything that I can, and I try to encourage others to do the same.
Even though I just started my work here at Delta, I’m already amazed at how much we’re doing in order to mitigate our impact on the environment. From employee and in-flight recycling programs to offering carbon offsets to our customers, Delta has taken leaps and bounds in the past few years towards becoming as environmentally friendly as possible.
I’ll be keeping up with Meghan’s blogs, and I’d definitely love to get as much feedback as I can. An integral part of becoming sustainable is hearing ideas from our customers and others in order provide new ways of protecting the environment. Delta has already taken a huge step in terms of sustainability, but we need your help to find the next way to reduce our footprint!
Looking forward to the next post!
