Deicing airplane wings creates millions of gallons of wastewater each year around the globe

As ignorant and negligent we tend to be in general when it comes to environmental awareness, before we plan for our next business trip or vacation, it would be nice to enlighten ourselves a littlebit about the consequences of daily airplane flights around the globe on the environment. So my question to you is this: Did you know that Deicing airplane wings creates more than 200 million gallons of wastewater each year around the globe?

If not, then a little study done by the American Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) might be useful to you. I’m pretty sure the next time you’ll think twice before flying to another country or city, you might feel some source of responsibility towards the environment.
