A small airline sets the pace on renewable fuels.

The sixth-largest airline in the U.S. can’t help but use enormous quantities of fuel, water, and metals. But by relying more on eco-friendly fuel and recycling all sorts of waste, from crew uniforms to plane parts to food, JetBlue is reducing its impact on the planet. The airline last year agreed to buy over 330 million gallons of renewable fuel over the next decade, one of the largest such deals yet.
