As I travelled today from Comox to Vancouver, then Vancouver to Cranbrook I was struck by the number of pilots - in fact all 17 I counted - who were using paper cups from the airport coffee shops. Not a single one had a reusable travel cup and yet lots of travellers did.
Wouldn't it be great if:
(1) every pilot, stewardess, aircrew opted to use a reusable travel
mug or water bottle - think of the millions of coffee cups saved in airports alone
(2) the airlines issued every employee a free, branded travel mug and/or water bottle with the expectation they use it. Additional marketing, aligning with what customers are increasingly doing, and showing that every employee can make an impact.
Now extrapolate that to the accommodation sector and wow, what a difference it would make. And I'll give a shout out to Contigo for hot beverages, and no spillage, no one does it better!
