- IHG Hotels and Resorts has signed a deal with British FMCG major Unilever for full-sized bathroom products.
- The Holiday Inn owner will replace miniature products with full-sized ones to minimise single-use plastics in over 4,000 hotels.
Plastic pollution has become a major concern across the world. Companies have been trying new innovations to switch to more environmental-friendly ways to carry out their day-to-day activities. With a similar aim in sight, IHG Hotels & Resorts (LON: IHG), a London-listed company that operates several hotel chains in multiple countries, has joined hands with British consumer goods manufacturer Unilever (LON: ULVR) for the supply of full-sized bathroom products like hand wash, body wash, shampoos, conditioners, and other products.
In a statement, IHG Hotels & Resorts announced that it would replace the bathroom miniatures with bulk amenities in over 4,000 of its hotels. These bulk amenities are basically larger bottles or dispensers with a capacity of at least 250ml. They will not be replaced after each guest's stay, the company said.
