JetBlue Airways announced its tenth annual “One Thing That’s Green” initiative.

The New York-based airline said it plans to beautify the area in Long Island City where its New York City support center is located with the help of customers and employees. Customers may cast a vote for the city to be the recipient of a new greenspace. The choices include Fort Lauderdale, San Francisco, San Juan, and Washington, D.C.

Last year Austin was selected and JetBlue customers and employees built a new greenspace at the Zilker Botanical Garden. In the past, Long Beach, California, and Hartford, Connecticut, have also won.

The carrier is partnering with Keep America Beautiful in a recycling campaign and is donating space and presenting a recycling-focused public service announcement on all of its flights for three months.

Since beginning the “One Thing That’s Green” initiative ten years ago, the airline and its customers and employees have planted over 3,500 trees and cleared almost three tons of trash in multiple cities.
