Crowne Plaza Doha West Bay has announced today the start of its transition from single-use plastic bathroom amenities to bulk-size. All single-use shampoo, conditioner, hand wash and lotion bottles will be completely replaced with refillable bulk-size counterparts across the entire hotel consisting of 317 guest rooms and public washrooms. This is in line with IHG’s (InterContinental Hotels Group) pledge to reduce plastic waste by switching to bulk-size bathroom amenities and making this a brand standard for every single IHG hotel. 

Around 56,000 bottles of shampoo, 41,000 bottles of conditioner, 48,000 bottles of bath gel, 41,000 bottles of body lotion and 61,000 packs of soap are consumed annually at Crowne Plaza Doha West Bay. By engaging into IHG’s green initiative of switching to bulk-size bathroom amenities, these figures will drop dramatically.

“It’s more important than ever that companies challenge themselves to operate responsibly—we know it’s what our guests, owners, colleagues, investors, and suppliers rightly expect,” said Keith Barr, CEO of IHG. “Switching to larger-size amenities across more than 5,900 hotels around the world is a big step in the right direction and will allow us to significantly reduce our waste footprint and environmental impact as we make the change.”

Najib Nasser, General Manager at the Crowne Plaza Doha West Bay, said, “We are proud to have started our shift to bulk-size bathroom amenities across the entire hotel and we are very happy to make this important step on our road to eliminating single-use plastic waste. Sustainability is very important to us and we will continue to take every action possible towards making a positive impact to the environment and to our community.”

Sushma Dahal, Executive Housekeeper, commented, “We have seen how much plastic waste is accumulated every day and it’s inspiring to be part of a company that is willing to take big actions towards plastic waste reduction. IHG has a great vision about sustainability and we will continue to make every effort and take every step to bring this vision to reality”.

Reducing waste for a sustainable future

The IHG Green Engage™ system is a well-established online sustainability programme, which recommends ways for IHG branded hotels worldwide to manage their waste more effectively. This includes guidance on how hotels can handle, store, recycle and dispose of waste both on and off-site, to minimise environmental impact and costs.
