Thinking Green for Earth Day

PEACHTREE CITY, USA – Earth Day takes place on April 22, and Aventure would like to reflect on how we can all help safeguard our planet. First celebrated in 1970 to support environmental protection, Earth Day has grown into a wide range of globally coordinated events.

Aventure has prioritized eco-friendly practices throughout many aspects of the company. For example, on-site electric car chargers at Aventure’s Atlanta headquarters have reduced the use of fossil fuels for employees and visitors for six years.

Aventure has sponsored industry-specific innovative green initiatives, like the Solar Impulse 2, the world’s first solar-powered aircraft to circumnavigate the Earth. Aventure also recycles aircraft parts from retired airplanes, which then go through a process to again become airworthy. 

Aventure is working on a new initiative for retired aircraft parts that can no longer be used for aviation-related purposes, by selling them to collectors and aviation enthusiasts.

“We are serious about being eco-friendly,” said Ron Taylo, Aventure’s operations manager for military sales. “We’re always striving to do better, and are excited about the eco-friendly upgrades coming with our new headquarters in 2025.”
