Virgin Atlantic have taken big steps in the fight for the use of more sustainable products. As of the 10th of September 2019, Virgin Atlantic have introduced one of the most sustainable amenity kits in the sky. The new amenity ‘Goodie Bag’ will create a saving of 945 tonnes of plastic per year, equal to the weight of more than 6 Airbus A350-1000 aircrafts.
Executive Vice President Corneel Koster, at Virgin Atlantic said: “Virgin Atlantic has always played by its own rules and our new amenities are no exception. Our commitment to sustainability is key to who we are, and we fully understand the importance to our customers. We have developed and selected better quality, innovative, sustainable amenities, which can be enjoyed onboard, and used again at home”.
Virgin Atlantic’s new amenity kit contains many innovative brands that will excite and delight Virgin customers. The ‘Goodie Bags’ will be made from responsibly sourced, FSC certified recyclable kraft paper and filled with sustainable treats. It will be launched across its fleet in both Upper Class and Premium cabins.
The amenity kit will be packed full of essentials, such as REN Clean Skincare products – including lip balm, hand cream and face cream, a full size @Bambuubrush toothbrush, a light blocking satin eyeshade with Velcro fastening to fit all shapes and sizes, contemporary design socks inspired by the destinations they fly to, earplugs in paper packaging, WhiteGlo toothpaste and a Kraft paper pen.
Customers flying in Virgin Atlantic premium cabins will not be disappointed with their ‘Goodie Bag’. They will also have the satisfaction of knowing that they have chosen an airline, that is serious about using sustainable products.
