California Governor Signs Ban on Small Plastic Bottles in Hotels

The law makes California "the first state in the country to accelerate more sustainable alternatives in hotel and lodging industry", said Ash Kalra, the Democratic state assemblyman who wrote the bill.

The ban on plastic bottles holding less than six ounces will go into effect on January 1, 2023 for hotels with more than 50 rooms, and one year after that for hotels with 50 or fewer rooms.

Many hotels have jumped on board with the law's goals.

Disney resorts will also stop using small plastic bottles at its resort and on its cruise ships.

Governor Gavin Newsom has announced that he signed a law, which is banning hotels from providing guests with plastic bottles, shampoos, conditioners as well as soap. This bill moves us one step closer to phasing out single use plastic in our society.

"Little everyday actions, like eliminating small plastic bottles, will have a positive impact on our environment", Kaminsky said in a press release.

Lawmakers in California have passed a series of laws over the last two years in an effort to reduce the amount of plastic waste in the state. The state already bans plastic bags at grocery stores without charging customers a 10 cent fee. In August, San Francisco International Airport banned the sale of plastic water bottles inside the terminal, with officials encouraging passengers to bring their own bottles if they wanted to fill up.
