In 2018, there was a record 45-million airline flights booked worldwide, which equates to roughly 4.5-billion travelers. You can only imagine the plastic waste generated, whether it be meal trays, earphones, amenity kits, beverage bottles, etc., and they contribute to the 5.7-million tons of cabin waste produced commercial flights each year. PriestmanGoode, a design studio specializing in travel, has just the solution.

Hotel Costa Verde, located in Manuel Antonio National Park, Quepos, Costa Rica, has one of the most unique accommodations you probably never knew about. This Boeing 727 didn’t crash land in the jungle, but rather is an old fuselage that was refurbished into a suite of sorts. Should you be lucky enough to stay here, there’s also a restaurant housed in another plane, a “Cockpit Cottage” made from an Aéropostale aircraft, and a railroad car restaurant.
