Air New Zealand has begun serving coffee in vanilla-flavoured edible cups in an attempt to eliminate the waste generated by the eight million disposable cups the flag carrier uses each year. “It not only retains its warmth but I can also eat this when I’m finished with my coffee,” the airlines’ head of customer experience, Katie Holmetier, said in a promotional video. Holmetier hoped that the initiative would enable passengers and New Zealanders “to rethink the way we interact with anything that goes in the rubbish”, reports Efe news. The airline, which already serves coffee in biodegradable containers, partnered with domestic company Twiice to produce these edible products.
