NEW OLREANS, LA - AUGUST 28: Small plastic bottles of shampoo and conditioner sit inside a shower in a room at a SpringHill Suites, a hotel operated by Marriott on August 28, 2019 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Marriott International, the world's largest hotel chain, announced on Wednesday that it is phasing out miniature plastic toiletry bottles in an effort to be more eco-friendly. The company says they will move toward much larger, pump-topped bottles at its 7,000 properties worldwide by December 2020. (Photo by Drew Angerer/Getty Images)

Collecting hotel toiletries will soon be a thing of the past. California is officially banning the tiny little bottles of bathroom products from hotels. According to CBS San Francisco Governor Gavin Newson has formally signed a law banning the toiletry bottles for hotels with more than 50 rooms. This will begin in 2023. For a hotel with less than 50 rooms, the law will take into effect in 2024.

This follows news that various large chains were getting rid of these plastic bottles, including Marriott International and Hyatt Hotels. Walt Disney Co. has also promised to stop using small bottles at their resorts and on their cruise ships.

Any business that violates this rule is subject to fines ranging from $500 to $2000.
