Marriott plans to expand its initiative to replace single-use toiletries in guestrooms with large, pump-topped bottles. Currently, single-use toiletries are removed from approximately 1,000 North American properties and 20 percent of international properties. These include properties under the brands Courtyard by Marriott, SpringHill Suites, Residence Inn, Fairfield by Marriott, TownePlace Suites, Aloft Hotels, Element by Westin, Four Points and Moxy Hotels. Marriott expects all other hotels to follow suit by December 2020.
“This is our second global initiative aimed at reducing single-use plastics in just over a year, which underscores how important we believe it is to continuously find ways to reduce our hotels’ environmental impact. It’s a huge priority for us,” said Arne Sorenson, president and CEO, Marriott International. “Our guests are looking to us to make changes that will create a meaningful difference for the environment while not sacrificing the quality service and experience they expect from our hotels.”
One of Marriott’s large, pump-topped bottles is equivalent to 10 to 12 single-use bottles. Single-use toiletries are not typically recycled.
