SPIRIANT Enables Conscious Travel
Leisure & Smart
Since sustainability has been and remains a relevant topic in the airline industry and is also close to our hearts here at SPIRIANT, we have decided to talk about our sustainable products and projects in a series of communication pieces right now.
Our mission is clear: Enabling conscious travel, for customers, for passengers and for ourselves. With inflight products and solutions that help airlines to minimize their footprint and make travelers feel they’re contributing to a global movement towards a more sustainable future.
There are many ways to make an impact, but let’s start with a topic that’s currently gaining increasing awareness on a global level…
Phasing Out Single-Use Plastics
With companies already making moves to reduce their plastic consumption and the EU’s directive proposal to ban throwaway plastics by 2021, sustainability is increasingly important to both consumers and businesses. The ban will cover all single-use plastic cutlery, straws and stirrers. The good news? There’s already a broad portfolio of sustainable alternatives available. Let’s look at three examples:
Eco-Conscious Cutlery, Save the World Stirrers & Sea-Friendly Straws
Cutlery and stirrers made from high-quality birchwood are sourced from replanted trees in farmed forests, 100% biodegradable and have zero artificial substances that would harm the atmosphere when burned.
For a more premium look and feel, you can also opt for cutlery made from fast-growing bamboo material. And for straws, it’s paper that convinces as a renewable raw material that’s 100% recyclable.
Small Changes, Big Impact
Consider this: An A380 on a long-haul flight has over 6000 plastic items on board. Imagine the impact a small change to a product could have on the overall plastic contribution.
