Wellington. The airline Air New Zealand has banned the first single-use plastic products on its own flights. These include straws, coffee stirrers and eye mask bags. This was announced by those responsible at the "Sustainability Breakfast" in Wellington. The next 14 single-use plastic products are to be banned by 2019 at the latest.
This year, the airline says it has already avoided around 25 million plastic items on its own flights. The goal is to be an environmentally conscious role model for other airlines.
