California lawmakers want to ban those little shampoo bottles you get in hotels

The toiletry bottles found in hotel bathrooms are often used a few times and then thrown out.


State lawmakers are considering a bill that would ban hotels from providing guests with small plastic bottles for soap, shampoo and conditioner. The proposed law, which would go into effect in 2023, would instead encourage hotels to provide the products in bulk dispensers to reduce plastic waste.
