Zero-waste: French hotel ushers in solid soap and shampoo

Zero-waste: French hotel ushers in solid soap and shampoo

THE WHAT? A hotel in Paris has become France’s first to eliminate single-use plastic from its business according to a report published by Business Traveller.

THE DETAILS The Best Western Opera Liege has reworked all areas to become a champion of zero waste, from key cards made out of wood to bamboo bin liners, its 50 rooms and suites are entirely plastic-packaging free.

Each bathroom has been equipped with a solid three-in-one soap bar, which can be used as soap, shampoo and conditioner, as well as a bamboo toothbrush and tablet-form toothpaste.

THE WHY? The hotel’s bathroom makeover alone will save some 55,000 plastic bottles from landfill, says Business Traveller – a necessary move given France is soon to ban the provision of free plastic bottles.
