Soap bars, small bottled-shampoo and shower gel are the most commonly used amenities in hotels, but few of them can be finished. See The Telegraph report:
Every day millions of bars of soap and half-used bottles of shampoo are discarded in hotel shower trays around the world; abandoned by guests who didn’t stay long enough to use them up.
There are ideas and organizations that recycle soap bars, but there are still huge costs in recycling. Some hotels have found a solution to this problem by using larger foam hand soap, shampoo and conditioner dispensers. This is one example of many the industry is currently implementing to act environmentally conscious.
Some luxury hotels provide boutique toiletries. Many guests cannot refrain from taking them home, but after a while these guests have accumulated an abundance of unused hotel toiletries. Disposing of them then becomes a headache. See Forbes article:
What Should I Do With Those Unused Hotel Toiletries?
Let’s appeal to hotel owners and management:
1) Replace soap bars, small bottled shampoo and shower gel with larger foam hand soap, shampoo and conditioner dispensers.
2) Provide soap bars, small bottled shampoo and shower gel at a reasonable cost
Some good news:
Radisson Hotel Group will implement bulk amenity dispensers across all brands by the beginning of 2022, replacing small bottles for common bathroom products. This action will remove 57 million miniature amenities from circulation, avoiding the use of almost 500 tons of plastic annually.
