Norwegian Cruise Line ditches plastic water bottles from its fleet in a bid to protect the environment

One of the world's largest cruise line companies is to ditch plastic water bottles from its fleet and use paper cartons in a bid to protect the environment. Norwegian Cruise Line will replace the five million single-use plastic bottles it gets through each year with a paper alternative by 2021. The cartons, from Just Water, are made almost completely from paper with a sugar cane cap. The travel industry, in particular, is of great concern to tourists, with so-called flight-shaming now rife and an expectation on those who can afford to do so, to offset their carbon footprint. 'We've established a goal to eliminate single-use plastics across the fleet, which is a substantial undertaking,' Andy Stuart, CEO of Norwegian said.
