Budget airline Ryanair has announced it will get rid of plastics by 2023 as part of its plan to be the 'greenest airline'.
In its 2018 'Always Getting Better' initiative, Ryanair included a pledge to 'eliminate all non-recyclable plastics from our operations over the next five years'.
"For customers on board, this will mean initiatives such as a switch to wooden cutlery, biodegradable coffee cups, and the removal of plastics from our range of in-flight products," says Ryanair Chief Marketing Officer, Kenny Jacobs.
The environmental section of its 'customer experience improvement' plan also includes a carbon offset scheme, whereby passengers have the option of making a donation to a climate charity online.
The company says it will have 129 million people on its flights just this year.
