The Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA), in partnership with Clear Channel Airports, a division of Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: CCO), has unveiled the new Green Education Kiosk at O’Hare International Airport (ORD). Constructed using sustainable materials and incorporating a biophilic design, or nature-inspired architecture, the Fly Green Chicago exhibit is a one of a kind eco-friendly centralized hub for displaying the CDA’s industry-leading environmentally green airport initiatives.

“On behalf of Mayor Rahm Emanuel, we are proud to feature this new permanent exhibit which showcases our industry-leading sustainability initiatives, past, present and future, at O’Hare and Midway International Airports,” said CDA Commissioner Rosemarie S. Andolino. “The exhibit will help educate O’Hare travelers and employees about the merits of going green by highlighting our efforts at Chicago’s airports to conserve energy, reduce waste, protect natural resources and manage land in a sustainable manner. It also offers a comfortable place at the airport for passengers to relax and recharge their electronic devices in between flights.”

Clear Channel Airports, a leader in airport advertising conceptual displays, used eco-friendly materials to create an aesthetically pleasing environment for sharing all of the CDA’s sustainability accomplishments throughout its airports over the past 10 years. This latest eco-friendly exhibit shares Fly Green Chicago’s evolutionary story in a compelling, engaging and nature-inspired way, welcoming travelers who want to rest, recharge and recycle.

The new Green Education Kiosk features seven information panels and decorative pylon enclosures that were constructed out of rigid board made from discarded wheat stalks; the benches, equipped with free charging outlets, were constructed from reclaimed walnut salvaged from the floor of the Mississippi River; and the upholstery on the bench pads is 60 percent bio-based material from sugar cane, a rapidly renewable resource. Materials used in the construction of the kiosk are low VOC.s, meaning there are virtually no off gassing or emissions from the material.
