Bloody hell @morrisons! I was under the impression you were “Working through all of our own brand products to identify, reduce and remove any unnecessary plastic packaging.” Do giant plastic tubs not count? 🤔👎
Low Impact Hotelling by NE-AT & Hudson Bay Lodge in Smithers, BC, Canada!
NE-AT would like to congratulate the Hudson Bay Lodge (Prestige Hotels and Resorts) for their policy/promotion of offering multi night guests a $10 gift certificate to their restaurant (#doncherrys) if they decline daily room cleaning. People don't expect daily or perhaps even weekly room cleaning at home so I'm not sure why they expect it at hotels! This room cleaning offer is what we call a win-win scenario!
In fact, on this 5 day trip to northern BC, Canada these tiny bottles of shower gels, etc... were untouched, just as mother nature intended 😇! Instead 1 small bar of homemade #LaPress soap was all that was needed.
Marriot International concluded that by eliminating these small single use plastic bottles of shampoo & body wash they "...expected to save an average of 250 lbs of plastic per year for a 140-room hotel - approximately 23,000 plastic bottles." Better yet, eliminate these totally unnecessary products completely and use solid soap and shampoo bars only.
Best yet, using La Press make your own custom homemade bar of REAL soap in 1 minute for $1/100g CDN. No heat. No chemicals. No pollutants. No packaging. Safe for all regardless of age or ability.
Support La Press.
Again, kudos to Hudson Bay Lodge in Smithers, BC, Canada for their win-win room cleaning policy! In a closed ecosystem, even one as large as the earth itself, everything counts.

Did you know lids from bottles are one of the most commonly found items in clean ups? They are also commonly found in the tummies of animals that ingest plastic accidentally. They are most commonly made from two different types of plastic. This means a plastic bottle is not really one single use piece of plastic. It’s two.
Did you also know there is potentially a solution, to have the lid attached to the bottle, and made from the same plastic? This means the lids won’t detach- and become animal “food” and they’ll also be able to recycled together, for those times you NEED a plastic bottle. Because reducing our use of plastic is key, and finding these solutions is an incredible support to that. Fantastic- don’t you think?
Thanks for the demo @seb_yuna_gwarez ❤️😜 This photos was taken during a school visit and clean up in Daanbantayan, Philippines.
The European Parliament is about to vote on new legislation to restrict single-use plastics – but unless MEPs close loopholes in the law, plastic-polluting corporations could be let off the hook! Members of the European Parliament in the Environment Committee just agreed to a definition of "single-use plastic" that allows polluters to simply market their throwaway polluting plastic products as "reusable." Please sign the petition to ask the @europeanparliament to fix this law before voting! Link in bio!
