The hotel group, which owns brands like Park Hyatt, Andaz, Hyatt Regency, Thompson Hotels and The Unbound Collection, will also add more water fountains so guests can refill their reusable water bottles

Following the lead of major hotel chains like Marriott and InterContinental Hotels Group, Hyatt Hotels has become the latest group to announce plans to reduce single-use plastics within the chain. 

Hyatt, which owns brands like Park Hyatt, Andaz, Hyatt Regency, Thompson Hotels and The Unbound Collection, has pledged to reduce single-use plastic water bottles by June 2021 throughout its properties around the world.

Other initiatives to reduce their plastic consumption include transitioning to large-format bathroom amenities that will replace travel-size toiletries like shampoo, shower gel, conditioner and lotion; adding more water fountains so guests can refill their reusable water bottles; and serving tap water in carafes and offering bottled water upon request. 

This past summer, Marriott International announced plans to phase out mini shampoo bottles by next December, while IHG also pledged to eliminate single-use plastic toiletries by 2021. 

The move away from plastic has also been adopted by major cruise lines including Royal Caribbean, Norwegian and Carnival.
