Air New Zealand trials edible coffee cups to reduce waste

Brian from New Lynn

The airline serves more than eight million cups of coffee each year, and while their current cups are compostable, Air New Zealand senior manager customer experience Niki Chave said the ultimate goal would be to rid them from landfills all together. The twice edible cup trial backs up Air New Zealand’s recent switch to plant-based cups on board all aircraft and in lounges.The plant-based cups are made from paper and corn instead of plastic, which enables the cup to break down in a commercial composter. Switching to plant-based cups is expected to prevent around 15 million cups from going to landfill annually. Air New Zealand also encourages customers to bring their own reusable cups on flights and into its lounges. According to its 2019 sustainability report, Air New Zealand emits around 3.5 million tonnes of carbon dioxide annually, making it one of the country's largest emitters.

Littlejohn st , works to be carried out

Mark from Hillsborough

Is everyone happy about the work to be carried out over the next 6 weeks. One would of thought some consultation, would have been courteous either to our councillors our residents. No mention of traffic calming and exclusion of Heavy goods vehicles, which , incidentally , are travelling at excessive speeds.
Some one needs to take a stand towards AT , and not let them just do what they think.
I await your replies

Ps. I have already witnessed an executive of Downer littering from his car, and had to ask him to take his mess with him. No respect , so I hope his employees are better behaved!!!
