New York Joins California To Curb Plastic Waste In Hotels!
In 2019, The State of California became the first state in the U.S. to legislate the ban on single-use toiletry bottles! Commencing January 1st, 2023, hotels with more than 50 rooms will be banned from using small plastic toiletry bottles. In 2024, this ban will extend to smaller establishments.
The Golden State is renowned for its progressive stance towards reducing plastic waste. In 2014, it was the first state to ban single-use plastic bags, and in 2018, it became the first to ban plastic straws at dine-in restaurants!
It’s expected that more states in the U.S. will follow suit and enforce similar bans on single-use hotel plastics.
