    Compostable Security Bags introduced at London Stansted

    London Stansted are set to become one of the first UK based airports to introduce new compostable security bags. Since 2006 the law has required airline passengers to place any aerosols, liquids and gels in see through and resealable bags with hand luggage as long as they are in 100ml containers. But with the approval of the Department for Transport and the Civil Aviation Authority, London Stansted will be trialling new compostable security bags over the course of the Christmas and New Year period.

    Trial Period

    The trial will be done with the help of the staff of Stansted Airport who will be distributing an estimated 50,000 bags to passengers, who will then be encouraged to give feedback on the new product and its usefulness. The bags themselves are considered to be more sustainable and reduce the airports carbon footprint due to the bags themselves being made from natural materials, meaning the product produces no toxic residue when disposed of correctly.
