In landfill, these plastic cups can leak contaminants and micro-plastics, which eventually find their way into marine life and water supplies.
If they are incinerated - a common practice - they emit carcinogens, contribute to greenhouse gases and add to air pollution in cities all around the world.
InfiniteLives is promoting the Green Bag Advantage to put an end to this senseless practice.
Easily distinguished InfiniteLives-branded Green Bags are paraded in the cabin as an icon of sustainability.
Crew collect all plastic glasses using the Green Bags. Customers can be encouraged to join the initiative by dropping their plastic glasses into the Green Bags.
On the ground InfiniteLives will collect the Green Bags from each flight and take the contents away for sterilization and repurposing to new, valuable onboard service items.
Simple actions connecting everyone to sustainability.
