easyJet is rolling out a new uniform for its cabin crew and pilots made from approximately 45 recycled plastic bottles each.
It is estimated that the new uniform will save around half a million plastic bottles going to waste each year. The innovative high-tech material was developed using renewable energy sources and has a 75% lower carbon footprint than traditional polyester.
The airline has also taken several steps to reduce plastic onboard and since 2000 says it has reduced the carbon emissions for each kilometre flown by over a third. It’s inspiring to see a commercial airline embracing innovative sustainable practices, responding to customer demands and Earth’s needs.
