The USA based Alaska airline has made a change to its inflight water service. The airline eliminated plastic water bottles, instead offering boxed water. Specifically, Alaska Airlines is partnering up with the Boxed Water’s 100pc pure water goes through a proprietary multi-step purification process, which includes reverse osmosis, carbon filtration, UV light and ozonation. The water is also pH neutral and free from additives.
This change saves an estimated 1.8 million pounds of single-use plastics from flights over the next year – equivalent to the weight of 18 Boeing 737s.
The inflight water service for Alaska Airlines is a major cause of plastic waste. The move should eliminate 22 million plastic cups and 32 million plastic bottles per year from Alaska flights.
