Delta removes plastic wrapper from amenity kits

Delta Air Lines is removing plastic wrappers from its TUMI amenity kits in business class, part of an effort by the industry to reduce single-use plastics.

Atlanta-based Delta is launching new amenity kits this month, and said it is removing plastic bags from the TUMI kits to divert 30,951 pounds of plastic from landfills in a year.

The kits still have conventional bottles and tubes for items such as toothpaste, hand cleanser and lip balm.

The new amenity kits in business class and in Sky Clubs include basil-scented Le Labo products.

The airline said it is also introducing new amenity kits for passengers throughout the cabin on long-haul flights.
