Think about it: the second you get into a plane, all sorts of single-use plastic items are handed to you. As you get yourself ready for a long haul, you'll be given a set of single-use plastic headphones to watch movies. During meal times, every bit of food will be packaged in plastics seals, and beverages contained in polystyrene cups. Every sip of water will come in a plastic transparent glass that you won't refill but throw away each time you've hydrated - and in planes you hydrate a lot! Flying is already emitting harmful greenhouse gas in our atmosphere, so let's step back and reflect on ways you can say no to oil-based plastic containers whilst being a very stylish traveller. First, you should invest in a reusable water bottle and we particularly like Be Hip for its very flat and fits perfectly in the pocket of the seat in front of you. Then, improve your journey by investing in proper headphones that will make entertainment all the more enjoyable. And think of bringing an eco-conscious coffee cup. Below is a selection of sustainably made products you can bring with you in a plane.
