IHG is going to be switching all 5,600 of its hotels from miniature bathroom amenities to bulk-size ones in order to reduce waste and environmental impact. IHG’s properties include nearly 843,000 guest rooms worldwide, and IHG’s guests have become increasingly interested in reducing the environmental impact of their stays. Several of IHG’s hotel brands, including Six Senses, voco, EVEN, and avid properties, have already made the switch, as have 1,000 Holiday Inn Express hotels. IHG already banished plastic straws from its hotels for environmental reasons.
- By 2021, all 843,000 of IHG’s hotel rooms will have made the transition to bulk-sized items, making it the first global hospitality company to do so.
- Several individual IHG brands have already had success with bulk items, including Six Senses, voco, EVEN, and Kimpton.
- IHG owns 5,600 hotels worldwide, to include over a thousand Holiday Inn Express hotels.
“IHG currently has an average of 200 million bathroom miniatures in use across its entire hotel estate every year.”
