EasyJet's new plane coating initiative is just one more example of how the businesses succeeding in innovation today are those that realize that cutting down on their carbon footprint is not synonymous with cutting down on their profits; in fact, it can often mean just the opposite.

By using an ultra-thin military-grade aircraft paint that is 1/100th the width of a human hair. EasyJet's new plane coating drastically reduces an aircraft's drag by smoothing out its surface. This translates to dramatic decreases in the amount of fuel the plane needs to burn in order to cover the same distance, which has the dual advantage of not only helping the environment but also EasyJet's coffers as well.
