Korean Air has released a range of amenity kits crafted from retired cabin life vests.

The upcycled pouches have been produced in collaboration with Korean beauty brand 107 and will feature six skincare products: facial cleanser, face mist, moisturiser, soap, shampoo and a mask pack.

Sustainability was also considered during the manufacturing process. The pouches were made at a factory using solar power and eco-friendly, biodegradable detergents were used to wash the life vests.

The airline has produced a limited number of 4,000 amenity kits which will be available for purchase on its e-Skyshop for KRW 125,000 (£79). Proceeds from the cosmetic pouches will be donated to a global environmental organisation, according to Korean Air.

The airline has carried out a number of other upcycling projects, including creating name tags from retired aircraft scraps and donating hot water bottle covers made from inflight blankets to those in need.

Last week the airline announced plans to introduce Korean-style vegan meals to its passengers from next month:
