Pass the Shampoo

Posted October 05, 2011 9:08 AM

In a move to rid the world of tiny, disposable soap and shampoo bottles, some high-end hotel chains are moving to large reusable bottles that are refilled by hotel staffers to dispense those freebies. The bottles carry a hefty price tag if you decide to take it home — up to $65 each, but many chains feel the greener option is what consumers want.

The preceding article is a "sneak peek" from Plastics & Resins, a newsletter from GlobalSpec. To stay up-to-date and informed on industry trends, products, and technologies, subscribe to Plastics & Resins today.

Well, the water comes out of a community dispenser, and every drop has been tiddled previously by a dinosaur. So why not?

Whether big or small,plastic or glass or metal no containers should be thrown as garbage. The manufacturers and traders should collect used containers and recycle/reuse to preserve precious resources for future generations instead of using for landfill and ruining the environment by polluting water,air etc.
