Collectors of Disney Resort miniature shampoo and soap bottles had better stock up on their Disneyland Resort bottles now. Under a new state law in California, starting in 2023, hotels will be banned from giving out those tiny toiletries bottles.
The law, announced on Wednesday by Gov. Gavin Newsom, states that the ban goes into effect in 2023 for hotels with more than 50 rooms and 2024 for hotels with fewer than 50 rooms. Fines range from $500 for a first offense and $2,000 for additional offenses.
This law follows in the steps being taken by hotel operators all over the globe. Disney has recently been installing refillable conditioner, shampoo, and soap bottles in their hotel rooms. Not only does this reduce the cost for the hotel, but it reduces the amount of plastic used by the hotel to provide hygiene products to their guests.
