Plastic not fantastic for Eurostar as it plans waste reduction
Eurostar has pledged to half its use of plastic by 2020 as part of new environmental targets and a focus on the benefits of high-speed rail journeys
Eurostar has unveiled a new 10-point plan to cut carbon emissions and reduce waste over the next three years, highlighting the reduced carbon footprint of high-speed rail for short-haul journeys.
Among its pledges are reducing its use of plastics by 50% by 2020 – including the millions of plastic bottles handed out to passengers every year. It will also work with its catering partners to reduce food and other waste, at source, and find alternative materials for packaging, aiming to eventually eliminate paper ticketing with a reduction of 50% by 2020.
