Looking to lower its environmental impact at sea, MSC Cruises has taken measures to reduce its single use plastics both on its ships and ashore. Plastic straws were the first to go and have been replaced by compostable and biodegradable substitutes. Under its Plastics Reductions Program, MSC is looking to further phase out other plastics by the end of March 2019.

MSC has demonstrated environmental stewardship over the past few years by implementing more effective waste management systems and innovative recycling facilities for its entire fleet. Since its inception, the cruise line has recognized the importance of respecting the environment and the oceans. MSC’s ban of single use plastics is the latest way the cruise line has shown its commitment to global stewardship.
