Amenity kit provider Albea Travel Designer has turned its focus to new sustainable developments and opportunities for airlines which want to create a more eco-conscious passenger experience.
These include up-cycling previously used products, such as using SALPA bonded leather fibre material made from leather splits to manufacture new pouches, and prioritising eco friendly materials including bio-sourced plastics.
The company has also begun using Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified paper, with material sourced from sustainable managed forests and post-consumer recycled wood fibre.
Albea recently joined up with the American brand Cotarde to create an eco-friendly amenity kit. This includes a number of products such as DayDream Mousse Cream and Face with a View Concentrated Cream, both in 5 to 15ml biodegradable tubes.
