"From today, there will be no more plastic bottles sold in a TGV"

, explained to AFP the director of Voyages SNCF, Alain Krakovitch.

"It was a real paradox that we put millions (of euros) to have TGVs that are 97% recyclable and that we sell plastic bottles there,"

he noted.

Plastic bottles will be replaced by cardboard packaging for still water and aluminum cans for sparkling water, both sold under the name "L'Eau Neuve" and from the Pyrenees.

SNCF sells 2 million per year in the bars of its trains, water being the second product sold after coffee.

A series of initiatives

As in fast food restaurants, the company intends to install interactive terminals on trains next year to order before going to collect your order at the bar.

The menu, revisited, gives more organic and French products, and offers a vegetarian option.

"We are in the process of setting up coffee dispensers"

operating with pods, also remarked Alain Krakovitch.

SNCF, which aims to be an example of an ecological means of transport, also promises

"the implementation of innovative logistics schemes to promote the recycling of costs in stations and reduce food waste"

.

Selective sorting will gradually be generalized on board.
