The European Commission (EC), after examining the statistics on the use of plastic materials in the hotel industry, has come to the conclusion that it is necessary to ban the use of disposable toiletries delivered to guests as soon as possible.

Hoteliers will be prohibited from offering their clients disposable bottles of hygiene products: shampoos, shower gels, creams.

Large, reusable dispensers have already become an alternative, or tourists will bring everything they need with them. The European Parliament will make the final decision in the near future.

On average, in each European country, plastic waste is approximately 180 kg per year per inhabitant and tourist. And the main component of plastic waste is packaging.

The EC is sure that if no action is taken, the amount of waste will grow every year.

The EC also considers it necessary to reduce the use of paper: for example, abandon paper checks and newspapers, transferring everything exclusively to electronic format.
