In a world first, blankets made from 100% recycled plastic bottles will be provided to airline passengers. Buzz invested two years R&D into developing ecoTHREAD™ blankets, to deliver a sustainable product that is comfortable, functional and durable. Buzz challenged itself to develop a product for airlines to help lessen their environmental impact, and still deliver all the luxury and comfort that passengers demand. ecoTHREAD™ material is made from plastic bottles which are recycled into plastic chips and transformed into yarn, creating the polar fleece material. ecoTHREAD™ launched onboard Jetstar in March 2015. Each ecoTHREAD™ blanket for Jetstar is made from an equivalent of 19 recycled plastic 400ml bottles.
