Air New Zealand to increase its efforts to rid itself of single-use plastics

Air New Zealand has vouched to further ramp up their campaign to rid single-use plastics from their operations. The airliner announced that it will substitute a further 14 single-use plastic products from its supply chain over the next 12 months. Kicking off the campaign on the 16th Octobor 2018, Air New Zealand committed to replacing 5 single-use plastic items including water cups, café cups and lids and Koru Hour cheese plates and lids domestically, as well as nine types of plastic bags network-wide. The airliner claims that these changes will result in a reduction of 260,000 plastic toothbrushes, 3,000 straws, 7.1 million stirrers and 260,000 eye mask wrappers annually.
