Marriott International, which owns more than 7,000 hotels in 131 countries, will stop offering small plastic bottles of shampoo, conditioner and bath gel by December 2020. According to NJ.com, the hotel chain will instead offer larger bottles or wall-mounted dispensers, depending on the hotel.
Many companies, including IHG (which owns Holiday Inn), Soneva Resorts, and Walt Disney Co. have made similar announcements in the last year.
