Ryanair announced on Wednesday that it would be eliminating plastics over the course of five years and would install a carbon offset scheme for their customers. This goes along with other new features that would be implemented in a new “Always Getting Better” plan.
The airline’s new environmental plan aims to remove all non-recyclable plastics from their daily operation by 2023. What does this look like in practice? For example, they'll switch plastic in-flight products to biodegradable coffee cups and disposable wooden eating utensils. Customers will even have the chance to bring their own cups on board!
