Hampton by Hilton hotels all across Europe are taking a new approach to bathroom amenities with tremendous advantages for both the environment, and Hampton guests. With the addition of Dispensers both in the showers and at the vanity, hotels are eliminating all forms of disposable plastic and partially used bars of soap from their bathrooms. The average 100 room hotel offering five shower products in disposable bottles and bar soap disposes of an estimated 70,000 plastic bottles, 17,000 partially used bars of soap, and 135,000 ounces of wasted liquids every year!
All Hampton by Hilton Dispensers display custom faceplates with the Purity Basics branding. The Purity Basics amenity product line was created exclusively for Hampton by Hilton and has been a hit with the guests. Some guests are even turning to eBay and internet beauty-product forums in an attempt to secure themselves some of the exclusive product to use at home.
Dispensers are being introduced in Hampton properties all over Europe. The idea of eliminating wasteful plastic bottles is rapidly catching on. Recent hotel additions to the Dispenser program include Hampton by Hilton Warsaw Airport, Hampton by Hilton Schiphol, Hampton by Hilton Berlin, and Hampton by Hilton Croydon UK.
The Dispenser Amenities team is proud to be a part of this movement. To become a part of such a fantastic brand which, year after year, has shown commitment to sustainability is a rare opportunity. We are excited to help contribute the elimination of disposable plastic from bath amenities to Hilton’s already impressive sustainability portfolio including eliminating over 80 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions through pro-active power purchasing, investing $1.3 million in financial support of the Global Soap Project on top of the 270,000 pounds of soap donated by Hilton properties, partnering with the Feeding America program which collects surplus food from Hilton locations and has supplied over 17,000 pounds to those in need, partnering with Goods360 to re-purpose worn but usable items from properties to people who need them, and even partnering with USA Today to provide free digital news content to their guests which eliminates a countless amount of paper waste.
