Ritz comes clean on recycled shampoo
Friday 09 July 2010
The Ritz Hotel in London is decanting surplus toiletries left behind by guests.
Minutes of a housekeeping meeting from March showed the hotel saved nearly £1,500 in February by "recycling guests' toiletries", the London Evening Standard reported. The Ritz's managing director, Simon Boxall, said guests got a full set of toiletries every day but surplus shampoos and body lotion were recycled rather than thrown away.
He said the hotel was cutting waste for environmental and financial reasons.
