Dublin Airport has announced it's testing alternatives to their Plane Water bottles.
Over the next few weeks, passengers can pick up a carton of water or buy a 100 percent recyclable and reusable bottle after security screening.
The bottles can be refilled at one of 18 hydration station fountains across the airport.

That's the equivalent of eating a credit card.
That's according to a new study commissioned by the environmental charity WWF International.
It shows the largest source of plastic ingestion was from tap and especially bottled water.
