Cupffee and Etihad Airways: Soaring to New Heights in Sustainability

A Flight Towards a Greener Future

In a landmark initiative on Earth Day 2019, Cupffee took to the skies with Etihad Airways, marking the launch of the world's first single-use plastic-free flight. This groundbreaking collaboration underscores a shared dedication to sustainability, with Etihad Airways setting an ambitious goal to reduce its single-use plastic usage by 80% before the end of 2022.

Innovative Partnership for Sustainable Skies

Choosing Cupffee as its partner, Etihad Airways became the pioneering airline to offer coffee in edible cups on an ultra-long haul flight from Abu Dhabi to Brisbane. This innovative approach not only enhanced the passenger experience but also made a significant impact on environmental conservation. The use of Cupffee's edible cups on just this single flight prevented over 50 kilograms of plastic waste from entering landfills, marking a significant step towards Etihad Airways' company-wide goal to eliminate 100 tons of single-use plastics from its inflight service.

A Milestone in Environmental Stewardship

The partnership between Cupffee and Etihad Airways exemplifies the transformative potential of collaboration between forward-thinking companies. By integrating Cupffee's unique solution into their inflight service, Etihad Airways demonstrates how the aviation industry can lead by example in the global fight against single-use plastic pollution.
