If you subscribe to Onboard Hospitality, this month you’ll read a bit about the new eco-friendly production measures adopted by John Horsfall. The magazine investigated innovative airline supply companies who are developing more eco-friendly products.

Positive partners: Eco-friendly products

Product designers and textile engineers are turning their attention to packaging-free and added-value design detail to ensure onboard textiles have a longer life and don’t end up in landfill sites.

While eco-blankets made from recycled plastic bottles may seem a solution, the company highlights the fact that these fleece fabrics,while cosy and serviceable, do shed microfibres into the water supply. Not quite an eco-friendly product, after all.

The team favours woven fabrics with a higher spun yarn that doesn’t shed and can enhance the passenger experience too.

This month’s magazine also features Michael Coupland and James McDonnell, who joined the John Horsfall team earlier this year.
