Green sky thinking

bpi.visqueen, part of British Polythene Industries (BPI), has designed a bespoke 100% recycled polythene bag for British Airways (BA) to assist the airline with its on-board recycling programme.
The bags, which are attached to onboard galley carts and used by cabin crew to collect items for recycling, were manufactured by bpi.visqueen’s sister company bpi.recycled products. In order to fit within the confines of the galley area the bags were designed to fit the width of a galley cart and to be secured using integral tie handles.
Gary Meades, manager environment at BA, said: "Working with the team at bpi.visqueen, we were able to design a lightweight but highly durable recycling bag that blends seamlessly into the existing onboard catering infrastructure.”
