5.7 million tonnes of passenger waste was created during flights across the world last year alone, with an incredibly small amount actually recycled. Worryingly enough, this number is expected to double over the next 15 years.
Thankfully Hi Fly, a Portuguese airline, wants to change this and shortly after Christmas pioneered the first ever plastic-free flight. During the flight single use plastics were replaced with bamboo and compostable alternatives created by recycle material.
