posted by Hannity Staff - 10.10.19

The State of California unveiled a set of new rules regulating their hospitality industry this week; banning the use of small, disposable plastic bottles commonly distributed to guests at nationwide chains and hotels.

“California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) announced Wednesday that he signed legislation into law banning hotels from distributing small plastic bottles to guests filled with personal products like shampoo, conditioner or soap,” reports The Hill.

The new rules take effect on January 1, 2023 and apply to hotels with more than 50 rooms or suites. The regulation will apply to all hotels in 2024.

“Thank you Governor @GavinNewsom for signing #ab1162 to ban single use toiletry bottles in the hotel industry! This bill moves us one step closer to phasing out single use plastic in our society. Thank you to California Hotel & Lodging Association for the support,” posted the Assembly member behind the law.
