While I don't think I've ever been served food on a train, every time I get a meal on a plane I get a little annoyed thinking about all the waste. Everything is a single-use item, from the serving dishes to the plastic cups and utensils.
But Deutsche Bahn, Germany's main railway operator, said enough is enough. They're ditching the single-use items for high-quality porcelain and/or glass dishes, cups, and bowls for no additional fee.
Coffee tastes better in a porcelain mug anyways, and this way you can dine on a train in a more sustainable way.
