Only Water carton packed water travels the world with Plus Ultra
The Spanish airline Plus Ultra Lineas Aereas has begun to distribute Only Water’s carton packed water format on its different routes. A change that has allowed the airline to go one step further in terms of sustainability, reducing the plastic in water containers on its flights.
For the water in cardboard from Plus Ultra, Only Water has created a personalized design that will be available from this year 2020 for all its passengers, both Executive and Economic, on all its routes.
The format chosen by Plus Ultra has been Tetra Prisma® Aseptic, in two sizes: 330ml and 1L. This packaging is mainly composed of cardboard from responsibly managed forests and other controlled sources, as certified by the FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) seal, an organization that internationally promotes the appropriate, sustainable and renewable management of forests in the world.
“Plus Ultra Green”
With the introduction of these more sustainable containers, Plus Ultra continues to advance its “Plus Ultra Green” project, through which the company has set out to eliminate most of the disposable plastic from its aircraft. In addition to the water containers, the company will dispense with the plastic of its cutlery and disposable cups.
“From Plus Ultra Airlines we are very aware of the need for a serious commitment to the environment and sustainability. For this reason, we have a corporate action plan geared towards the care and preservation of the planet, starting with the launch of our Plus Ultra Green brand, which will focus on practices that include the substitution of some materials used on board, such as in this case, water bottles for recyclable products. Now, thanks to Only Water and its packaging, we are taking another step towards reducing single-use plastics, moving towards a more sustainable path that is respectful of our environment, “said Gibson Preziuso, commercial director of the company.
For his part, the CEO of Only Water has stated that “We are delighted to support these types of initiatives that drive companies towards sustainable development. From Only Water, in addition to having a more sustainable container, we offer top quality water with 0% impurities and one of the lowest dry residues on the market.”
