1000 Flowers for the Planet - #630 Travel With Your Own Headphones
Single use plastic items are everywhere. When you travel you’ll find them even more evident. When flying to and from your destination, it’s always nice to be able to pop the headphones in to listen to music or watch a movie. Whilst it may be easier for the airline to provide the headphones for your listening pleasure, it is also easier for them to be thrown ‘away’ (read: ‘into landfill’) than to recycle them, due to health reasons. The headphones also usually come wrapped in plastic packaging. Avoid all this pointless waste by taking your own headphones. As many airlines charge for the supply of headphones, you’ll save money too.
