Norwegian Cruise Line has eliminated all single-use plastic bottles across its fleet, fulfilling a pledge the line made last year.

The cruise line has removed more than six million single-use bottles that were used by its 17 ships every year. As part of the line’s partnership with consumer goods company JUST Goods, the bottles have been replaced with a plant-based carton, which is made of 82% renewable materials. The new carton is both refillable and recyclable.

“This is a very special and very proud moment for us,” said Harry Sommer, president and CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line. “As a leading cruise line, we are thrilled to make such an impact by eliminating single-use beverage bottles across our fleet. It's just one of the ways we are working to preserve our oceans and the destinations we visit. We will continue to strive towards making environmentally conscious decisions to benefit our earth.”
