If you stay at an InterContinental Hotel there will be no more stuffing those little plastic shampoos in your suitcase. The chain says your loss is a win for the environment.

The company just announced its dumping those sample-sized plastic bathroom bottles. Instead, housekeeping will be stocking rooms with bulk-sized amenities.

Making this change will save the environment from 200 million plastic miniatures a year used in InterContinental hotel rooms across the world. The brand includes Kimpton, Hualuxe, Crowne Plaza, Voco, Indigo, Even, Avid, Holiday Inn, Staybridge Suites and Candlewood Suites.
