Norwegian Cruise Line is to phase out all single-use plastic bottles across its fleet by the end of this year.
NCL has signed a deal with water brand Just to replace six million plastic bottles. Just uses plant-based cartons, with paper grown in responsibly managed forests.
The bottle’s cap is made from sugarcane-based plastic. The packaging is refillable and made of 82% renewable materials.
Just claims its bottling facilities in the US and Northern Ireland also mean it can meet demand around the world without shipping water from a single production source.
Andy Stuart, NCL president and chief executive officer said: “While we are aware this is just the beginning of what we and others need to do to be good stewards of our environment, we are committed to our Sail & Sustain initiatives and will continue to innovate for the overall benefit of the planet and its future.”
