Disney Channel Star Jenna Ortega, returns with the latest Disney Cruise Line Behind the Waves video focused on the DCL’s commitment to recycling. In this video, we get an inside look at the behind the scenes recycling process which begins with passengers and crew using the appropriate recycling receptacles on deck and in the staterooms. Below deck, crew members carefully double check to make sure the materials are properly separated. So, don’t worry if you accidentally toss a plastic water bottle into the can bin – just don’t make it a habit as it is extra work. Once the recyclables are separated they are compressed for easy storage and taken offshore to complete the recycling process. Disney estimates they eliminate 325 tons of trash each year through there recycling program.
In addition to recycling traditional materials, the used cooking oil is offloaded in Nassau to power a fleet of Bahamas Waste Management vehicles.
Jenna is also the voice of Princess Isabel from Elena of Avalor and played the Vice President’s daughter in Iron Man 3. You can learn more about other Disney Cruise Line environmental efforts via DCL’s Environmental Fact Sheet.
