The allied used gliders in Operation Market Garden (known from the movie - and expression - "A bridge Too Far"). But they where dragged to the destination by powered aircraft - C47 and various bombers. Only the actual landing was completely unpowered. Worked fine to add capacity and capabilities to the powered aircrafts, but I don't think they had any noticable environmental benefits, nor do I I think they would have gone that route if starting from scratch without already having the odd thousand powered aircrafts available.
