Australia’s leading eco-friendly packaging company BioPak has teamed up with Qantas to launch the world’s first “zero waste flight”.
A flight leaving early this morning from Sydney towards Adelaide is part of the most ambitious environmental push by any airline.
BioPaks certified compostable packaging will be commercially composted in Adelaide and replace a range of single-use plastics and disposable food packaging items on the flight.
“We are delighted to team up with Qantas Group in what is an unprecedented step forward in fighting the war on waste,” says Gary Smith, CEO BioPak.
“This is the most ambitious waste reduction target of any major airline globally, and we are truly excited to be at the forefront in providing state-of-the-art, eco-friendly products that solve the impending issue of single-use plastics.
“We want to give customers the same level of service they currently enjoy, but without the amount of waste that comes with it,” says, Andrew David, CEO Qantas Domestic.
BioPak packaging is made from plants, using a range of renewable materials that are responsibly sourced.
Their sustainable, innovative and certified compostable packaging solutions are designed for a circular economy where there is no waste.
