Holiday Inn owner cracks down on plastic toiletries

InterContinental Hotels has become the first global hotel company to commit to cutting the use of miniature toiletries. The UK-based owner of the Holiday Inn and Crowne Plaza hotels said it would remove the 200m plastic bathroom products used annually throughout its estate of 843,000 rooms by 2021. IHG, which last year committed to stop using plastic straws in its hotels by the end of 2019, said about a third of the estate had already stopped providing miniature bathroom products to guests, with its luxury brands offering bulk bathroom soaps in ceramic containers. Its high end resort brand, Six Senses, which the company bought in February for $300m, has said it will go plastic free throughout its supply chain by 2022. IHG's Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express brand still use plastic plates and cutlery for breakfast service.
