Hotel Amenity Bottles On Their Way Out

Posted by Ray Szydzik on

You’ve all seen them and probably used them. The convenient little plastic bottles of shampoo, rinse, lotion and moisturizer in the hotel rooms you’ve stayed in. Well, they’re on their way out to help reduce the amount of plastic waste in the world and its oceans. For example, recent California legislation is underway to ban hotels from providing toiletries in single-use plastic bottles and is being followed by New York.

California Near Ban of Hotel Amenity Bottles  From: CleanLink

To give you an idea how many plastic bottles would be saved from entering the land fill: Marriott hotel suggests it could save 23,000 plastic bottles a year for each 140-room hotel. Hyatt hotels are removing mini shampoo bottles in over 219,000 hotels rooms. Intercontinental Hotels is removing shampoo bottles to cut plastic waste from nearly 843,000 guest rooms. Some hotels are switching to bulk-size bathroom amenities to cut waste. sells bulk quantities of lotion and antibacterial soap and a variety of manual and sensor-operated dispensers. Plus, the Sloan soap refill containers for ESD-217, ESD-232 and ESD-231 and ESD-233 are identified #2 - HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene). HDPE is the most recycled plastic and is considered one of the safest forms of plastic. It is a relatively simple and cost-effective process to recycle HDPE plastic for secondary use.

The current national crisis is beyond our control and to help combat it, washing hands responsibly is of national and worldwide concern. We can control the amount of plastic in the world’s oceans, which left uncontrolled could be more plastic bottles than fish by 2050, by shopping wisely and implementing legislation.

The change is on its way across the country and perhaps the world.
