Hyatt is Eliminating Travel-sized Plastic Toiletries

The changes will affect Hyatt's 900 hotels worldwide

Hyatt is the latest international hotel brand to ditch travel-sized toiletries from its rooms, following Holiday Inn-owner InterContinental Group and Marriott International. Portable tubes of shampoo, conditioner and bath gel will be replaced with bulk-sized toiletries across Hyatt's global chain of 220,000 rooms beginning in June 2021. The changes will affect Hyatt's 900 hotels worldwide, encompassing 20 brands, including Park Hyatt, Hyatt Place and the Andaz.

"Plastic pollution is a global issue, and we hope our efforts will motivate guests, customers and, indeed, ourselves to think more critically about our use of plastic," Mark Hoplamazian, president and CEO of Hyatt, said in a press release.

Hyatt is also placing a greater emphasis on encouraging customers to use reusable water bottles by making bottled water available only by request and increasing the number of fresh water stations in its lobbies.
